By Crom! is a joke-a-panel autobio webcomic featuring life advice from the ever-practical, mighty-thewed Conan the Barbarian. It ran online from 2012-2014 and was collected into a book in 2016 thanks to Kickstarter! As it ran, the art style changed significantly; below is a whole range of samples from the archives, including covers of all the zines and smaller collections; it can all be read for free on WealdComics.com
