I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

Holy crap. Did he ever look like a nancy-boy until Frazetta came around and gave him the grim visage that we know today. I just couldn't take those early versions seriously. They look like guys right out of central hero casting of the day, especially that first one. Thanks for the sharing.

Yeah, it just shows what a real influence Frank Frazetta has been on the perception of Conan. Frank singlehandedly thrust Conan into the public consciousness.
