Hyperborean Sexism in Savage Sword of Conan #4

It's hard to keep track but Savage Sword of Conan is one of four books starring Conan the Barbarian at Marvel Comics. And in this preview of this week's issue, Savage Sword of Conan #4, we see the titular barbarian, alongside his friends Suty and Menes in a tough spot, being chased by an army of the dead and facing a bottomless chasm in front of them.

What to do? Well, Conan needs to help his friends, but his treatment appears to differ by gender. For Menes, Conan leaves her no choice, picking her up and tossing her across the chasm.

While Suty is given the chance to leap himself, with a little assist from Conan.

What's the problem, Conan? Didn't they have gender equality in ancient Stygia? Actually, come to think of it, they probably didn't.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
