Conan the Barbarian is to the "Sword & Sorcery" genre, what Superman is to the "Super-Hero" genre. The bold Cimmerian basically gave rise to the S&S fantasy sub-category, thanks largely to the efforts of Roy Thomas and Barry Smith, who were the writer and artist for the 1970 Marvel "Conan the Barbarian" series. While the brilliant Robert E. Howard brought Conan to life back in 1930s pulp magazines, modern fans associate the muscle-bound, sword-swinger with Marvel's comic book run. By 1978 Conan had grown so popular, that he made the leap to newspaper syndication. Which leads us to this pair of original artwork panels, created for the Conan the Barbarian newspaper daily strip. Measuring approximately 17 x 5-1/2", these panels are dated 1980 and 1981. The earlier strip is credited to Roy Thomas and Ernie Chan; and the latter strip to Doug Moench and Alan Kupperberg. Both pieces report in excellent condition and an abundant array of professional editorial markings speak loudly for the authenticity of these original production panels. Make a bold capture for your collection with these (2) vintage artwork pieces.
