    Conan The Barbarian #1 (Marvel, 1970) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. Here's a book that started a big trend back in 1970, one that is still going strong today. Taking their cue from the enormously popular Robert E. Howard books, Marvel's comic version of the sword-wielding Conan was a huge hit. A big part of the appeal was the fantastic art by Barry Smith, who seemed to capture the "Middle Earth" feel of the character perfectly. This stunning copy will please even the most jaded collector; it simply screams "fresh"! It would take some real cherry-picking to have found a copy this nice on the stands back in the late summer of 1970, when it first hit the stands. To date, no other copy of this issue has received a higher grade from CGC. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $325.
