Grognak the Barbarian was a multimedia franchise owned by Hubris Comics in the mid-21st century.

BackgroundEdit

The franchise relates the adventures of the titular Grognak in an ancient, fantastical world. The series began as a comic book and eventually expanded to other media, including video games such as the text adventure Reign of Grelok and the CRPG Grognak & the Ruby Ruins.

There were at least fourteen issues of the comic book. Many of these books were badly damaged or destroyed by the Great War of 2077. An intact copy, with no missing pages, is considered very rare. The price for a copy was $23.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • "Grognak the Barbarian" is a reference to Conan the Barbarian.
  • The cover of "In the Lair of the Virgin Eater" resembles the cover of the Conan issue: "Lair of the Ice Worm".
  • The stance Grognak takes on the cover of the comic book is nearly identical to the Barbarian class image from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The axe in his hand is also similar in appearance to the Iron Battle Axe from the same game.
  • The issue "Lost in the Snows of Lust" may be a reference to "The Frost-Giant's Daughter," one of the early Conan the Barbarian stories by creator Robert E. Howard.
