The Eagle-Award winning barbarian parody series is collected at last! Thrud the Barbarian leads a simple life, one of popping down to his local pub, quaffing a few tankards of ale and starting a fight in which everyone else is beaten senseless. After which comes the wenches! Hurrah! Trouble is, there always seems to be someone with a quest to interrupt his peace, quiet and packet of crisps… In his first-ever collection, Thrud faces down a necromancer (FWAP! SPLATT! THOWK!), protects his beer against fierce Frost Giants (THWOP! KER-THUNK!), faces his arch-nemesis (MASH! TWHACK! THUNKTHUNKTHUNK!), assumes the role of the king he accidentally killed (POK!), and gets his pint spilled on a mission into the depths of the jungle (SPLUTCH!)!
