FRAZETTA homage - " Masters of the Universe "

After the beautiful Frazetta piece " The Barbarian "

Another memo from the Not quite CONAN department. SKAAR

Ok we've covered this one already and noted that when SKAAR first appeared as a regular in the Marvel Universe he was jokingly referred to as CONAN due to his similar stature hair do and big sword. But Marvel now has their TV show HULK and the agents of S.M.A.S.H I have not delved any further into it to find out what SMASH means. But I do know " HULK SMASH!!! " So here we have some snippets and stills from the cartoon series and some promo spot shots of the crew. Take a look for yourself....does SKAAR ( Who is supposed to be the son of the HULK in the comic books ) look like CONAN? Yeah I guess so. The cartoon ignores the son of HULK concept so that completely negates that he is an earth elemental and can literally with will power raise a mountain with a thought and drop it on someone as well as convert his body into a solid impervious rock like state as well as benefit from having the size and physical power of the HULK. No doubt about it if used properly SKAAR can be a dangerous customer. But the cartoon is missing the mark on this one. They should cover the whole PLANET HULK story into a flashback and properly give SKAAR an origin. That's just my opinion.

THE SAVAGE SWORD OF SASQUATCH?

I stumbled across a new comic book series written and created by Josh S. Heneman with a familiar feel to it but a great deal different than what we are used to. The nearest I can figure...because I have yet to purchase the comic book itself but plan to. But enjoy these random web pictures I grabbed to share with you. I plan to review the comic series as soon as I can acquire some copies. As of this writing I don't know how long it's been out but it looks like a fun read and I kinda like the idea of Bigfoot running around with a broadsword whacking and hacking things up...but it looks to me in some panels he does that with his bare hands as well...Enjoy.

A guy named CONAN playing THOR....in the film VIKINGDOM

Conan Stevens from GAME OF THRONES is a big dude...he could easily play CONAN. In the low budget foreign made Viking adventure VIKINGDOM he plays THOR...here's a nifty little gif of THOR displaying his power!

Mighty Marvel commission by Big John Buscema -

Notice CONAN,Belit and Red Sonja delineated by the greatest comic book illustrator ever. I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for the lack of activity here over the past few months. The two originators who got the ball rolling on this great blog have taken leave. Life intervened and they moved on. I have files and e-mails from several people for several upcoming posts on my pc and waiting for me to get to them to post and share with the followers of CROM... If anyone would like to join up as a contributor here...send me an e-mail tell me about yourself and your intentions. If you're familiar with the blog then you know the tone we have set here. We run a clean and genial shop. So go ahead and contact me... I look forward to some new material from some new people. Hope to hear from you soon. ;)
