During the 1960s, one could not simply walk through the fantasy section of a bookstore without picking up a copy of the newly-reprinted Conan the Barbarian stories. The stunning artwork adorning the covers – created by Frank Frazetta – imbued the barbarian with a dynamic and visceral energy that enthralled millions of new readers. Coupled with Frazetta’s vision, Conan became more than just a character – he became an icon and titan among fantasy heroes.
