I collected the Elfquest and bought a lot of the Marvel B&W Conan magazines and their color King Conan title for its short lived life.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.
Sounds obvious to me! -Gm Michael

I really like the new Conan and Red Sonja series that Dark Horse has been putting out. I cannot wait to see what their Fafhrd & Grey Mouser comics look like.

As far as less recent stuff, I was/am a fan of the following:

Poison Elves (One of my favorites of all time)

Elfquest

The Forgotten Realms & Advanced Dungeons and Dragons series

Warlord (I liked it when I was a kid. I Can't say I'm a fan of the newly launched series)

I liked the WARLANDS serious from DW. That was pretty good for a while. After that the only think I really read much of in comic form was Conan.

Definitely the Adventures of Skeeve and Ahz based on the "One fine Myth" series by Robert Asprin with artwork by the great Phil Foglio (who, way back when, used to do a comic strip in Dragon magazine).

Asprin is my all-time favorite author (not to mention a gamer), followed by Pierce Anthony ("Xanth" series).

Savage Sword of Conan and Conan Saga were absolutly awsome. I'm still trying to complete both series (that's alot of comic shop hunting).

I was a fan of the AD&D/Forgotten Realms/Dragonlance comics Although they haven't aged as well as the Conans.

Anyone else have the Elric/Stormbringer comic series?

Elfquest was fun, but Elflord surpassed it.

I have an issue of two. It was pretty well done. Very stylishly drawn, which befitted the subject matter.

The new Conan by Dark Horse hands down for art and great rendition of the original tales.

Warlands was great artwise, but ranks second only because the plots were rather thin.

Ah Mike Grell's Warlord. That was great stuff. Classic fantasy fiction that! I also read a ton of Epic and Heavy Metal. Always loved the brawny heroes and scantily clad chicks.
Savage Sword of course, but that was Davis' fare!
