Good Show Sir Comments: Russian Conan is angry that lightning has melted his ice cream cone.

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 6.50 out of 10)

    After ‘The Red Shoe Diaries’ debacle, David Duchovny took what work he could get, even straight-to-video sword and sorcery.

    Tat Wood@1: Cromifornication!

    @GSSC: Conan and the blueberry sherbet of DOOM!

    Conan looks a bit embarrassed to appear wearing that outfit, and I don’t blame him.

    “Conan? I thought I was supposed to be cosplaying as Loki!”
    “Oh shut up. I’ll get you an icecream if you stop pouting, okay?”

  5. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Conan accepts the free drink from Vladimir Putin. BIG mistake.

  6. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @A.R. Yngve: shave off the rest of his hair and put him in black robes and Putin would fit just fine in with the rest of Conan’s rogues gallery.

    Can’t tell if those are love handles or part of his armor.

    “Oh, sure, they TOLD me it was diamond, but now they’re saying it’s quartz!”

    If ever there was a Conan you suspect of using steroids, it ought to be the Russian Conan.

  10. JuanPaul Says:

    Conan the Siberian?
    Conan the Destroyer…of the bourgeoisie?

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    (1) (2): LOL.

    Sure, put him in kinda Greek armor, one of Loki’s helmets, and give him a blueberry ice cream cone.

    Conan, the Destroyer of His Own Reputation.

  12. Francis Boyle Says:

    In Soviet Russia Conan kills you. . . with laughter.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Rather a delicate grip on the sword hilt. Is that an extended pinkie? Not very Kohahesque, by Crom.

    @Tor M—GSS!

  14. Max Bathroom Says:

    Maybe this is the gay Conan, outing himself as a protest against Russia’s institutionalised homophobia?
    (Which is an idea that has potential: I don’t think even Robert Jordan got around to writing Conan The Bottom Bitch…)

  15. JJYoyo Says:

    As far as I can determine this is actually Bulgarian Conan. It is weirdly ungrammatical If it is Russian.

  16. Tor Mented Says:

    In role-playing games, such strong and heavily armored characters are referred to as tanks.
    Wouldn’t it be great to see him towed away by a Ukrainian tractor?

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tor: It would indeed!

    I hear Russian soldiers are finding out that since the invasion of Ukraine isn’t officially a war, they can’t be forced to take part. The worst that can happen is they get thrown out of the army, not even jail time.

    ObColbert: What’s this Conan holding? Is potato.

  18. Lars of Mars Says:

    The nice Bulgarian lady over in the engineering office verified that it is indeed Bulgarian.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Lars: Did you show her the cover? If so, she may not be so nice in the future.

  20. Lars of Mars Says:

    I offset the bad cover by showing her clips from the livestream of sea otters at the Vancouver Aquarium. 🦦
