Book Review: Thrud the Barbarian
Big muscle. Tiny head.
In the 80s Thrud the Barbarian comic strip was a regular, and popular, feature in the roleplay and wargame magazine, White Dwarf. In 2002 renewed interest in it prompted Critchlow to self publish full length Thrud comics.
This collection of stories takes Thrud to a variety of places, ‘helping’ people to stay safe on their dangerous travels. He has a love for beer, and a habit of accidentally causing a lot of chaos. Carl Critchlow’s drawing style is unique, and a lot of fun to look at. It perfectly compliments Thrud’s trail of devastation, or is it heroism? You decide. If you want a fun, silly romp, then Thrud is the Barbarian for you! So come and join Trud on his crazy adventures of hilarity and mayhem!
