Battlepug - Moll

I want you to picture  if you will the saga of Conan the Barbarian.  A story of revenge, of sorcery, and of great deeds set during a time when wearing shirts was out of fashion.  A story of a man who forged himself into a weapon of vengeance under the chains of slavery and whose only weapons against the horrors and injustices of the world are his strong sword arm and his keen battle instinct.

Now imagine that the thing that destroyed the main characters village and killed his mother was a giant baby seal, the people who enslaved him are Santa and his elves, and the warrior's most faithful companion and steed is a pug the size of a horse.  Now you have a pretty good idea what you're getting yourself into when reading Battlepug: an irreverent homage to everything Robert E. Howard that simultaneously takes the piss out of the entire genre while being a pretty good example of how this kind of story should be written. (first comic)

Moll is the narrator of the series, which is told as a story to entertain the two talking lap dogs who occupy the castle tower with her.  What her connection to "the warrior" is and why she's in a tower with two talking dogs is a mystery for most of the series.
