Years ago, I started reading a little series from an author that had previously written some of my favorite post-Robert E. Howard Conan novels. The premise was a simple one, but as I read further into the books, they became far more intricate and seemed to expand beyond my wildest dreams. I speak, of course, of Robert Jordan‘s The Wheel Of Time series.
Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles that were released on March 30, 2016. This month has two different Conan comics! Not to mention the last Fight Club 2. So dig in, March is ending with a bang!
There’s been a wacky rumor going around that Lord of the Rings and the Planet of the Apes reboot star Andy Serkis is actually playing Jar Jar Binks, the infamous Star Wars prequel trilogy character, in The Force Awakens, and that the character has become evil over the years.
I’m not sure if anyone actually believed that the rumor was true, but Conan O’Brien asked Serkis about it on Conan, to which the actor confirmed he was in fact playing Jar Jar. Of course this was all in jest, but you can watch the video below to hear Serkis’s Jar Jar impression!
Fallout 4 was officially released today (read our review right here), making today a holiday for many gamers.
As part of his late night talk show Conan, host Conan O’Brien, who is not a gamer, does a segment called “Clueless Gamer” in which he plays (or attempts to play) various video games with a little help from someone who knows what they’re doing, Aaron Bleyaert. So for the latest session it made all the sense in the world for Conan to take on Fallout 4. They even built an awesome Fallout inspired set and donned some skintight Vault-Tec vault 111 jumpsuits for the segment.
You can watch the video of O’Brien taking on the Commonwealth wasteland below.

I love all things Conan. This is an indisputable fact, my friends will testify to it. That is, until this particular comic was delivered to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Dark Horse led Conan/Red Sonja miniseries that preceded this Dynamite attempt. But Red Sonja/Conan #1 seemed…unnatural, for lack of a better word. Or maybe I’m critiquing it overmuch.
