Conan Comics from Spain are Yours to Download for Free!

This is a big one, fellow Conan fans! A CROM! reader that goes simply by the name Cromsblood sent me an e-mail the other day explaining how he has spent the last 6 months or so translating a series of Spanish comic books he found on a now-defunct website which feature our favorite Cimmerian. The comics were called "Sword!" and showcased stories and artwork never before seen in America!

Here's a little background information sent to me by Cromsblood...

"Sword Studio is a comic book studio run by Carlos Yañez. Carlos Yañez is the editor of a spanish magazine called Sword.
"Bloody ice" was done in 1999 for the Spanish Conan editor, Editorial Planeta, because Editorial Planeta (under contract with Marvel Italia/Panini Comics) began a project named "Conan made in Spain" to publish new Conan comics made by Spanish artists. This project was cancelled due to economic problems, and "Bloody Ice", and a lot of other Spanish Conan adventures (like "The Treasure of Akem-Lizar", a 55 pages Conan adventurer) can not be published in Spain or in other countries. "
Here are some of the new covers, which I believe are completely new redesigns by Cromsblood...

Now for the good part! Not only is Cromsblood sharing this information with everyone (hell, I'm just thrilled to even hear of this comic book!), Cromsblood has been kind enough to post every issue online for free!

They are all hosted by Rapidshare and can be downloaded individually as .cbr files, which you will need a comic book reader program in order to read these. I prefer Comical, it's also free and small and easier than a Zamoran trollop to use.

Click the links below to download the books! And once again, much heart-felt thanks to Cromsblood for doing this! You have truly added something big to all of Conan fandom!

Hi!
I´m Enrique, from Spain. I made a little parody about Conan, using a famous spanish brand of cakes named "CODAN". The story is based on "frost giant´s daughter"... I hope you like it!!

Hey thanks for these and thanks for the link to Comical! I didn't even know there was such a thing. Okay, I didn't check, but still, thanks!

A couple of years later and these links are all dead. Has anyone preserved these comics for posterity?

Here is a working link. I hope this helps people who have an interest in this defunct series.
