Conan the Barbarian v1 #10, 1971 - The first of two longer page-count issues, Conan enters a bejeweled city and joins up with a fellow thief from his past. Barry Smith's drawings crowd most of the small panels, but not without interest or excitement. Decorative flourishes abound, especially in scenes of sorcery and fantastic creatures. Smith's pensive opening splash depicts Conan and his female companion at the city gates, firmly establishing the setting and tone of the story. The issue also contains a King Kull back-up story, one of his earliest appearances in comics. This is number 10 of 22 Conan the Barbarian issues with Smith art and/or covers.
