Conan the Barbarian #23 - Barry Windsor Smith art

Conan the Barbarian v1 #23 marvel comic book cover art by Barry Windsor Smith
Conan the Barbarian v1 #23, 1973 - Pursued by a deadly swordsman known as the Vulture, Conan finds an ally in a fellow mercenary named Red Sonja (her first appearance). An abundance of small panels fill Barry Smith's layouts, making them appear crowded and convoluted. Dan Adkins does a fine job delineating the opening splash, but fellow inkers Sal Buscema and Chic Stone do little to enhance Smith's pencils. Note that this story was originally slated for Conan #22. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover). This is number 21 of 22 Conan the Barbarian issues with Smith art and/or covers.
