Savage Sword of Conan #29 - Neal Adams, John Byrne art

Savage Sword of Conan v1 #29, 1978 - Accompanying the main Conan feature, a handful of single page portraits by Bruce Patterson help fill in the remainder of the issue. One stands out above the rest: a Red Sonja page superbly finished by Neal Adams. John Byrne also contributes a splash of Solomon Kane fending off a demon. The style suggests a fairly early work, finally seeing publication for the first time. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema, Gil Kane, Ralph Reese and Russ Heath. This is number 2 of 2 Savage Sword of Conan issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams, Byrne or Savage Sword of Conan issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Byrne checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
