Barbarian Comics

 BARC   (California, 1972-1975)

ô and © 1973 Bob Sidebottom

Barbarian Comics is proof that even the underground scene couldnít resist taking advantage of Conan the Barbarianís popularity in the early Ď70s. Not requiring Comics Code approval certainly provides writers and artists greater freedom, and this anthology title offers the sex, nudity, and graphic violence that Marvelís Conan wasnít allowed to do. However, not every story in Barbarian Comics falls within the fantasy genre: the second issue features a parody of E.C. Comics-styled science fiction and an unusual tale wherein a biker takes one final ride in the desert.
