Conan the Cimmerian

by Robert E. Howard

Series Description

Conan the Cimmerian is a fictional Sword & Sorcery hero (by Robert E. Howard), that originated in pulp fiction magazines and has since been adapted to books, comics, several films (Conan the Barbarian/Conan the Destroyer), TV programs (cartoon and live-action), video games, role-playing games and other media. An exact reading order isn’t necessary, but for those who like to read in chronological order, I’m going to use Joe Marek’s: The Coming of Conan, Conan the Barbarian, The Sword of Conan, King Conan, Conan The Conqueror.
