    Ah man, sounds awesome, I hope they pull it off. I wish they'd do a live version of it with Ron Perlman.


    The new Conan comics are also very worth picking up.

    I read all the original stories by....damn, forget the authors name.....and they're all solid. I like how there was a definite H.P. lovecraft influence in some of the Conan stories.

    Here are some good quotes from Conan the Barbarian:

    ----------------------------------------------------
    Mongol General: "We have won again. That is good! But what is best in life?"
    Mongol Warrior: "The open steppe, fleet horse, falcon on your wrist, wind in your hair!"
    Mongol General: "Wrong! Conan, what is best in life?"
    Conan: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!"
    Mongol General: "That is good."
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Conan's Father: "No one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. [Points to sword.] But this... this you can trust."
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Subotai: "He is Conan, Cimmerian, he won't cry, so I cry for him."
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Conan: "Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, and why we died. All that matters is that today, two stood against many. Valor pleases you, so grant me this one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, the HELL with you!"

    I've been meaning to get into the recent comics. I heard that they were gonna remake a lot of the classic tales, too.

    Anyone who's met me will tell you that I'm the blackest motherfucker in the world.






    Did you read the latest one, the finale of the Elephant Tower? The pay-off illustration of the elephant towering over the sorcerer was so good, made me go back and read it a couple of more times.

    Lovecraft and Howard were actually collegues, they both influenced each other. Howard committied suicide when he was very young, he was troubled.
