Description

John Buscema - Original Cover Art for King Conan #8 (Marvel, 1981). Conan enraged, attacking a menacing hooded figure, while the life of a beautiful woman hangs in the balance! What more could you want in a classic Conan cover from the hand of the master, the incomparable John Buscema. Considered by many to be the greatest artist ever to render the Hero of Hyborea, Buscema managed to capture both the power and the inherent nobility in the Cimmerian Warrior-King. In excellent condition, this cover measures approximately 11" x 17" overall. Although it has not been signed by the artist, the piece does bear Jim Shooter's approval signature in the lower right.

Buscema, John:John Buscema (American 1927-2002): After the departure of Jack Kirby from Marvel in 1970, John Buscema became one of the company’s most influential artists. Buscema is perhaps most celebrated for his Bronze Age work on the Avengers, the Silver Surfer, and Conan the Barbarian. Buscema’s work proved so in-demand in the mid-seventies, he launched the John Buscema Art School which advertised for students in the pages of many Marvel titles. Stan Lee made appearances as a guest lecturer at Buscema's school and the two collaborated on the wildly popular book How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way, Simon and Schuster, 1978 . Comic Art
