Countdown to Halloween 2010! Conan's Creature Features Part 1

Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian is rightly heralded as the inspiration for most of what is great about the sword and sorcery genre. What we must remember, especially as we Countdown to Halloween, is that the "sorcery" part of that equation is made up of a never-ending array of nightmarish nemeses. To drive that all-important point (for this post, at least) home, here is a heaping helping of Ol' Groove's fave freaks from the Roy Thomas/Barry (Windsor-) Smith era of Marvel's Conan the Barbarian. Look ye upon yon demonic denizens and despair, Groove-ophiles!
