If the studios can treat this property seriously like LOTRs, it would take off.  All the same elements are there.  And by God, we DON'T need an origin story. 

Oh  Yes, Please just get with it and no origin story..maybe a minute total of some flashback scenes is all you need.

Unlike LOTR though, I would hope they would keep the CGI on the low end and make the movie decidedly not for children.  Along with the great soundtrack and set design, one of the main things that made the first Conan so great IMO was how graphic it was.  I would prefer something with violence and CGI level similar to the first season of Game of Thrones as opposed to 300, or even Gladiator.  Although, Gladiator was a great movie and one as good as it has not been made in the almost 20 years since.  I think the market is ripe for another movie like it.

Wow.  Quite a surprise.  Not sure if I should be happy or worried about this.  I think Dark Horse has done a great job with the license since acquiring it.  I hope Marvel doesn't screw the pooch on this one like they did years ago.  The quality at the end was really bad. 

Totally agree - Dark Horse has done a really great job with Conan - hoping Marvel can continue with the same quality.

Just came in today.  My 2nd comic related purchase of the year. Amazing how cheap these early issues are.

I agree Conan was rated R if I remember correctly, and someone who is 35 would have had the last 17 years to enjoy a Conan film. I don't remember anything being even offered...

Or go with your older brother or parent. Frankly, in my neck of the woods they let 14 year olds solo in if you didn't look 12. Like me being able to buy beer and liquor at 15 and bar hopping at 16.

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
