Savage Sword of Conan #44 - Marshall Rogers art

Savage Sword of Conan v1 #44, 1979 - An embattled Conan fends off winged demons while supporting a scantily clad female. While not an uncommon theme, Marshall Rogers does fine a job with the drawing and composition. Lines of perspective are added to increase depth in an otherwise flat background. As far as I know, this is Rogers' only rendition of the character. Other artists in this issue include Bob Larkin, Sal Buscema and Tony DeZuniga. This is number 1 of 1 Savage Sword of Conan issues with Rogers art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers or Savage Sword of Conan issues. See also this blog's Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.

  1. That illustration was originally published in FOOM #14 (the Conan issue) back in 1976. It is, indeed, a beautiful image--and a very early example of Marshall Rogers' work.
