Conan is Bored to Death in Savage Sword of Conan #6 (Preview)

Over the years, Conan the Barbarian has been described as many things: black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, a cash cow for which a comic book publisher who owns his license could make a dozen concurrent ongoing series. But despite the accolades, in this preview of Savage Sword of Conan #6, we learn that Conan has a particular weakness: a low tolerance for boredom.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
