Paradox Entertainment announced the acquisition, in two stages, of Conan Sales Company, which holds all rights to the Robert E. Howard Conan character. Paradox is a Swedish company with Mutant Chronicles, Kult, and Heavy Gear currently in its brand portfolio. Pre-existing Conan licensing deals include a feature film (with Schwarzenegger back as Conan, Stan Lee producing, and a Milius script, see 'Arnold's Back on Conan') and book publishing. How the property made its way from the defunct Stan Lee Media (see 'Stan Lee Media Tanks') to Conan Sales Company isn't clear.
