Conan the Barbarian v1 #11, 1971 - Despite the odd foreshortening, Barry Smith's cover is nicely composed and viscerally attractive. The interior story is his longest to date, giving him ample room to showcase his storytelling skills. His adaptation of Robert E. Howard's "Rogues In the House" pulsates with excitement, aided by two full page splashes and numerous large panels. Smith's figures and faces still border on the primitive, but their emotive power results in his finest Conan issue so far. This story was first reprinted in Marvel Treasury Edition #4. This is number 11 of 22 Conan the Barbarian issues with Smith art and/or covers.
