Conan the Barbarian v1 #4, 1971 - Freely adapting from Robert E. Howard's Tower of the Elephant, Conan seeks riches within a jeweled, yet well guarded structure. Barry Smith's artwork displays an increased confidence and maturity. Decorative elements enhance the interior settings on pages 10-16. The seedy tavern on the first page also more thoughtfully detailed than previous issues. His pacing, sequencing and organization is carefully planned and continues to improve. This story was first reprinted in Conan king-size special #1. This is number 4 of 20 Conan the Barbarian issues with Smith art and/or covers.
