Barbarian fun

Yes it's silly.  Yes it's reinforcing sexist cliches.  No I don't care.  I think the concept of Skataris is absolutely fucking glorious.

Dinosaurs! Swords! Barbery! Damsels in distress! Savage Lost Worlds! Dinosaurs!  I want to be a savage sword wielding dinsoaur fighting barbarian rescuing the damsels.

As I said, glorious.

To be fair, I don't think there were many damsels in distress in the early issues, having just read Showcase Presents: Warlord.

True, they all wandered around in next to nothing and fell in love with Travis almost instantly, but both Tara and Mariah, the two main female leads, were capable of defending themselves.

But hey, I'm still holding out for the Warlord to appear somewhere in the New 52, complete with dinosaurs, barbarians and forgotten Atlantean technology! As you say: glorious!
