Jason Momoa

As "Khal Drogo" in "Game of thrones"
Conan the Barbarian is back on big screens, however this time not featuring Arnold Schwarzeneger, but Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa  (born August 1, 1979), a Hawaiian actor. In 2010, he appeared in the Emmy-nominated HBO series "Game of Thrones" (2011) playing the Dothraki King, "Khal Drogo". First time, I saw him in this serial. Recommending watching this serial who missed it.
Mainly due to Jason Mamoa, planning to watch this film.

While checking my e-collection found these 4 strips of Conan. All credits go to original scanning person(s). Enjoy!

It's 3rd story in the "Phantom Year One" series from Egmont, "The Courier", which printed as Frew #1392 and Fantomen 19/2004. 

Script: Claes Reimerthi
Art: Alex Saviuk. 

The new 21st Phantom fly to Bermuda to help out Diana, who has found herself accused of smuggling money out of the country.

 Inspite of one historical translation error ("Sinatra records" as "Sinatra CDs") by Frew in page 24,  the story is lovely.
