    Barry Smith Conan the Barbarian #10 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1971). The mighty Conan is warned to "Beware the Wrath of the Bull-God!" on this cataclysmic cover by Barry Windsor-Smith. The carnage and the gigantic Bull-God are so overwhelming that someone at Marvel was afraid the Cimmerian was getting lost in the chaos. As a result, they had him statted up by about 10%. That original stat is separate, but included in this lot. Don't overlook the wonderful Kull the Conqueror in the lower banner, not drawn by Smith but by Marie Severin. The cover was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an overall image area of 10" x 15". Signed by Barry Smith in the lower left of his portion of the cover. The corner box, issue/price, and logo are all stat paste-up, as is the "Before there was Conan, there was -- the Conqueror" blurb at the bottom. The other cover text elements ("All New Stories", "Beware the Wrath of the Bull-God", and "Bonus! KULL") are all hand-lettered. The board is toned and in Very Good condition.
