A lively, character-driven graphic narrative set in a fantastic, ancient milieu that superficially bears resemblance to a world that will be familiar to longtime Windsor-Smith fans who remember his work on another famous warrior. While similarities with Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian are obvious given Windsor-Smith's history with the character (he made Conan a household name in the early 70s), The Freebooters is a riotous, unexpected and postmodern take on the genre, a politically incorrect farce worthy of its hedonistic milieu.
