Conan The Barbarian
Conan the Barbarian (also known as “Conan the Cimmerian,” from the name of his homeland, Cimmeria) is a fictional character often associated with the fantasy sword-and-sorcery subgenre (also known as “heroic fantasy”). He has been credited with being the most famous fictional barbarian, and is indeed one of the best-known and most universally recognizable figures in modern popular culture. Created by American writer Robert E. Howard in 1932 via a series of fantasy stories sold to Weird Tales magazine, the character has since appeared in licensed books, comics, films, television programs, and video games… contributing to his long-standing popularity. Conan the Barbarian is also the name of a Gnome Press collection of stories published in 1954, a comic published by Marvel Comics beginning in 1970, and a film and its novelization in 1982.
