Conan the Barbarian, the iconic and fierce warrior, has captured the imaginations of readers for decades. From his origins in the pulp stories by Robert E. Howard to his adventures in comic books and magazines, Conan has become an enduring symbol of heroic fantasy.
Conan’s journey began in the pages of pulp magazines during the 1930s. The character was created by Robert E. Howard, a masterful writer known for his vivid storytelling and rich world-building. The pulp stories introduced readers to the untamed land of Hyboria, a place teeming with danger, magic, and brutal warfare. Howard’s compelling prose painted a vivid picture of Conan’s adventures and showcased the barbarian’s primal strength and cunning.
Conan’s popularity soared to new heights when Marvel Comics secured the rights to adapt the character in the early 1970s. Under the guidance of writer Roy Thomas and artist Barry Windsor-Smith, Conan’s world was brought to life in a visually stunning and action-packed manner. The Conan the Barbarian series, which debuted in 1970, became an instant hit, captivating readers with its lush artwork and dynamic storytelling. The comic introduced a generation to the thrilling exploits of Conan and the many colorful characters that populated his world.
