An interesting concept. In my brain I'm struggling to blend Tolkien's setting with Howard's savagery, but I like what this guy has had to say so far and if he posts enough of those maybe my brain will re-wire a little and I can give it a shot.

It's really not too much of a stretch of the imagination to view Tolkien through a "pulp" lens. In addition to the Frazetta ME pieces, I think that music is another link. Heavy Metal music (and other genres) has been an outlet for Tolkien fandom since the beginning. Conan and Cthulhu (pulp icons) are also recurring themes in this musical sphere. There's also the album art...
