The Barbarians #1
June 1975
select an issue of The Barbarians

This first (and only) issue of Atlas' third Sword & Sorcery title was to begin an ongoing anthology series featuring "not only established brawlers like Ironjaw and Wulf, but also new concepts in swashbuckling heroics..."

Published between Ironjaw #3 and #4, the lead feature united Ironjaw with his new biographer Gary Friedrich (who assumed scripting duties with #4) and set a new direction for the character's own series. The backup in this issue was the story of Andrax, an Olympic athelete from 1976 kidnapped by a mad scientist and put in suspended animation to awaken 2000 years later in a desolate future.
