"Conan the Adventurer" Season 2 Part 2: The Slow Rise of the Cimmerian

“Final Hours of Conan” is another of this set’s successes, as Conan is infected with a poison that will turn him into a Serpent Man under the thrall of Wrath-Amon, who offers Conan and his companions an antidote in return for their Star Metal weapons.

Joe, capturing the hearts and minds (and wallets) of kids and teens everywhere who fell in love with their memorable characters and high-octane (if ultimately toothless) action. Production began on feature films for these two properties, along with a […]
