Conan the Barbarian…20th Century Pimp??


This gem is from 1984 and was titled, “What if Conan the Barbarian were Stranded in the 20th Century?” You gotta love the “What If?” series. Where else are you going to see Conan the Barbarian dressed up in the finest pimping outfit money can buy?

As you can see Conan puts on some fly duds and brings along his pet Cheetah to impress the fair Danette. But Dannette, like his movie love Valeria loves the man, not his earthly trappings. So Conan strikes out here and moves on and makes friends with Captain America and then proceeds to turn everyone in America out.

Great read.

  1. I am so glad I found this website! Although that comic isn’t as funny as I’d like it to be, it is still extremely ridiculous in theory. Definitely bookmarking this site though, great layout and great content.
