I’m just going to let the comic pitch speak for itself here, because I can’t do any better: What if Conan the Barbarian was forced to reclass as a wizard? And if that doesn’t hook you then I have no idea what will.
You know who might though? Les Julian. Which is a good thing since he literally wrote the book. What book is that you might ask? Savage Wizard, which you can get on Kickstarter right now. And you should. So get on that.
