CONAN THE BARBARIAN (1970-93) Issue #16 Interior Page
Publisher:
Marvel
Grade:
VF: 8.0
This Barry Windsor-Smith piece features Starr the Slayer, a Conan-inspired figure designed before Marvel acquired the rights to Robert E. Howard's creation, making this quite the interesting collectible. Appearing in both Chamber of Darkness #4 and Conan the Barbarian #16, this tale, featuring the barbarian prototype, bears an almost indistinguishable resemblance to Smith's rendition of Conan. The story on the page involves the Slayer's mind-bending trip to a parallel universe, in which he finds the author of a story featuring himself, and, in true barbarian fashion, attempts to kill its creator. Employing creative panel design and the strong-yet-delicate line work Smith is known for, this is a special piece for those Sword and Sorcery fans out there.
