Round one allows us to reminisce on our favorite pop culture weddings, before a decidedly less celebratory round two, where we take unethical pop culture journalists to task.

The Riddle

I trod the land a long time past,

My tales were weird, but have seemed to last.

I was a pirate, a thief, a king, any title you could bear,

But really found my voice under Stan Lee's heir.


Most of the original Conan stories were published in Weird Tales, and were supposed to have been set in the dim past of Europe. They have certainly been better remembered than most of the pulp content of the era. Conan is known for having gone from being a pirate, thief, reaver and soldier to eventually becoming a King in his old age. Much of the continuing popularity of Conan is attributed to the comics about him, starting in the 70s, mostly written by Stan Lee's chosen successor as Editor-in-Chief of Marvel, Roy Thomas.
