    Barry Smith and Sal Buscema Conan the Barbarian #9 Story Page 7 Original Art (Marvel, 1971). Writer Roy Thomas' gamble to introduce pulp-fiction hero Conan to a comics audience paid off big-time, with scripts loyal to source-author Robert E. Howard and the arrival of a dazzling new art-stylist, Smith (a.k.a. Windsor-Smith). The page, here, is part of a desperate rescue sequence, requiring Conan to pass through a herd of woolly mammoths -- one sniff, and the creatures will know whether Conan is a friend or an enemy. Suspensefully constructed, with a touch of reassuring humor. The reverse contains lightly penciled rehearsal drawings, with natural smudging. Ink over graphite on age-toned Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Moderate scuffing. Very Good condition.
