Conan the Barbarian #40 - misattributed Frank Brunner cover

Conan the Barbarian v1 #40, 1975 - No Frank Brunner cover, despite what some comic book price guides say. The artist's work does appear in 1 other issue of Conan the Barbarian. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler and Ernie Chan (cover). See today's posts or more Conan the Barbarian or Brunner issues.

This may actually be a Rich Buckler pencilled cover under Chan inks. The Conan figure has a pose that looks very Kirbyesque, which would make sense if Buckler pencilled it. Romita also touched up Conan's face.
