"calmly discuss the incorrect nature of your beliefs"

Would that be before or after he runs me through or throws me out a window? XD

I didn't need the text reference to Crom in your title to know who this is...

It's been said that to enter into close combat with this guy is to invite certain death. Throughout all of the stories written, there have been very few individuals who could even present a challenge to that.

One of the best depictions of the cimmerian I've seen since Ernie Chan's work back in the 80s. Very good job. I've always believed that the character and world of Conan should remain in black and white, with just inks.  Maybe I'm just old school like that.

Actually that's not so far off if you've read the books. He likes to negotiate via the medium of something sharp and/or heavy but the character was designed to be rather intelligent if not well educated. Think about it - the guy is a nobody from bum-fuck nowhere and decides to traverse the land in search riches, booty and the occasional magical/cursed kingdom. He passes through half a dozen kingdoms with two dozen customs and works as anything from mercenary to thief - the latter of which takes a good deal of stealth and brains. One of the books - "Conan the avenger" if I'm not mistaken - starts with the premise that his queen has been kidnapped. Extrapolating from that we can conclude that at some point, a bunch of guys came together and collectively decided - "This is the guy we want to be making decisions for us".

This isn't really a rant or an attempt to argue. I just saw a convenient place to spout some trivia I find interesting... aannnd it got a bit out of hand from there.

P.S. The picture looks awesome. However I have to argue the wisdom of putting a two-handed handle on a shortsword.

Actually, I've been a fan of the books since I was like, 12 or something. I think I've read most if not all the original stories and many more. So, yeah, I understand all about the ranting and I do agree with your point. The thing is, I think this line was meant for a younger Conan, who was still new to "civilized manners" and all that and had little patience for the things he didn't understand or disagreed with. He obviously learned after all the adventuring, but he still remained true to his Cimmerian roots, no matter how "refined" he may have turned out eventually.

Plus, I enjoyed Nebezial's little black humor-ous line, because I find it quite quite valid.

That said, maybe you're right about the sword's handle, but it's mostly semantics as far as I'm concerned.

Actually, that's not a shortsword, but a broadsword. A shortsword would indeed have only enough room for a one-handed grip, but also the blade would be about 25% shorter.

I haven't read MANY of the books I must admit. I can only name "Avenger" and "Destroyer", If I remember correctly, along with a collection of stories the title of which I can't recall. And oh god I didn't notice the title of the sketch 'till just now and now I'm in stitches.

Dude! You just go buy the R. E. Howard omnibus on Conan. It's got all of his stories compiled and it's a good read if you're into that sort of thing. (Don't read the ones by Robert Jordan though. I hear they're not all that good.)

The title is quite becoming, don't u think?

Well, the original Conan was a cheerful barbarian with a prodigious gift for languages, and surprising depth of thought when called for, knew how to draw a map, and could plan how to kill monsters, pirates, nobles, warriors and you without problems!
