I really like this image. It's not the Frazetta that most of you are used to, but I think it does an excellent job of conveying the fierce and brutal energy of R.E. Howard's Conan. I don't know if this is the best way to put it, but this feels like the Sword & Sorcery atmosphere that OD&D is built on to me. The dynamic tension in the figure makes your lips curl and your nostrils flair. You just know Conan is about to explode in a lightening storm of razor edged steel.
Below is a short comic Timm did for I don't know what. Conan does have a sense of humor after all. And it's just the sort of humor that shows up in The Game by my experience.
I really like the series of expressions by the girl when Conan starts laughing.

I <3 this.
Aw, man. Thanks for sharing that!
You're welcome, gentlemen! I use this as an example of a critical fumble in The Game.
Dang, that Conan is one cold mutha -
Shut your mouth!
I'm just talkin' bout Conan...
I swear to God that exact thing happened to a Kobold in my AD&D last week. I had his spear break and hit himself in the head on a fumble, but same basic. Yeah, very D&D.
If that was a fumble table from Arduin Grimoire, they guy would have also plucked out his owne eyeballs, rip-off his lower lip, and spin around after stabbing self in chest to also stab himself in the back with it. Awesome.
That is from Dark Horse Comics Conan #18 if memory serves. It was hilarious the first time I read it.
