Conan the Barbarian #16 - Barry Windsor Smith cover & reprint

Conan the Barbarian v1 #16 marvel comic book cover art by Barry Windsor Smith
Conan the Barbarian v1 #16, 1972 - The issue features Barry Smith's superb work from Savage Tales #1, reprinting the tale in color for the first time. Resized from the original magazine format, most of the details thankfully survive (excluding some mild nudity). An earlier Conanesque tryout from Chamber of Darkness #4 is also included, drawing comparisons between the two. Smith wraps these reprints in a brand new cover, artfully drawn and composed. This is number 16 of 22 Conan the Barbarian issues with Smith art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Conan the Barbarian or Smith issues.
