Nuada of the Silver Arm was a weekly comic strip by Jim Fitzpatrick that ran in the Sunday Independent in 1974-75. Loosely based on Irish mythology and heavily influenced by Barry Windsor Smith's Conan comics, it featured Nuada as a pre-Christian barbarian hero searching for a woman, Amrann, who had been abducted by the evil Fomorians, through a world full of mysterious forests and giant lizards.

It was controversial - some objected to its violence and scantily-clad characters - and the editor eventually pulled it, calling it "prehistoric pornography".
