Savage Sword of Conan #26 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Savage Sword of Conan v1 #26, 1978 - A simple, yet daring composition makes this issue's cover all the more striking. This is Jim Starlin's one and only effort for the series. Monochromatic green hues allow Conan's figure to stand out. The pile of decapitated heads on the lower right is a nice touch, suggesting the hopelessness of the moment. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema, Tony DeZuniga and Alfredo Alcala. This is number 1 of 1 Savage Sword of Conan issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Savage Sword of Conan issues.
