Reminder: CanCon the Barbarian

It’s exactly as bewildering as it sounds.

In keeping with today’s trend of handing out reminders of my recommendations list (which is here, by the way), here’s my recently-revised recommendation of early 90s cartoon Conan the Adventurer.

And, yeah, it’s exactly as bewildering as it sounds. To whit:

Now, much like our favourite Cimmerian when faced with some eldritch thing that has crawled out of the stygian void beyond the stars, my mind cannot comprehend what I’m seeing here.

And most bizarrely of all, it’s a shockingly faithful adaptation of the source material — probably more so than any other adaptation of Conan we’ve got.

That’s the weirdest part to me. Kids really, really shouldn’t have enough familiarity with Conan to be able to recognise that; adults familiar with the Conan stories probably wouldn’t want to watch those stories adapted into a cheesy cartoon.

And yet, here we are.

And best of all, it’s CanCon!

You can watch the series for yourself online legally and for free here, and you can read my full recommendation here:
