Savage Sword of Conan #14 - Neal Adams, Frank Brunner art

Savage Sword of Conan v1 #14, 1976 - Arriving in a desert town, Conan takes refuge in the very house where numerous others have disappeared. He subsequently rescues a lovely maiden, who implores him to kill her sworn enemy. Neal Adams delivers one of his lengthiest bronze age tales, which includes three full page splashes. Unfortunately, his formidable pencils are weakened by inker Tony DeZuniga and his cohorts. Their loose, sometimes inconsistent approach dominates many of the smaller panels and a few key pages. On the bright side, these are offset by Adams' sheer artistry on the first sixteen pages or so. His opening splash of a lively street bazaar is equal to his finest bronze age works. Frank Brunner also contributes a splendid frontispiece of Conan on horseback. This is number 3 of 3 Savage Sword of Conan issues with Adams art and/or covers (not including reprints) and number 2 of 3 Savage Sword of Conan issues with Brunner art and/or covers .
