Conan Update

Why couldn't this be the cover art?

What do you know, the Conan the Destroyer Blu-ray arrived in today's mail so here's a little more information on the featurettes on the disc.

Basil Poledouris: Composing the Conan Saga (17 minutes)
Featurette / Interview with Basil Poledouris about working with John Milius on Conan the Barbarian, composing music for film in general and his work on Conan the Destroyer.

Conan: The Making of a Comic Legend (14 minutes)
The title to this featurette is rather similar to that of Conan: The Rise of a Fantasy Legend, so I was wondering if this might be the same featurette with a different title. This is not the case. Comic Legend is an interview with Roy Thomas (creator of Marvel Comics' Conan the Barbarian series) and Gerry Conway (Marvel Comics writer). They talk about the history of Conan and Marvel Comics and their experiences while writing the story for Conan the Destroyer.

Conan: The Rise of a Fantasy Legend is available on the UK blu-ray of Conan the Barbarian.
