    Description

    Conan the Barbarian #1 (Marvel, 1970) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. President Obama "collects ... Conan the Barbarian comics" according to the Daily Telegraph. Well, this copy of the Cimmerian's first comic book appearance is a "presidential" Near Mint plus, with pages as white as the Commander-In-Chief's new residence! In the interest of Anglo-American relations, we'll note that British artist Barry Smith illustrated the story by the USA's own Roy Thomas -- that's a "team of mavericks" even McCain voters can love! We expect this high-demand book to sell for around quadruple the 9.2 Overstreet value, so if you bid lower you might need the audacity of hope. Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $375. CGC census 1/09: 59 in 9.6, 8 higher.
