    Barry Windsor-Smith - Original Unpublished Cover Art for Conan #9 (Marvel, 1971). Conan fights as he falls in this action-packed cover from Marvel's most popular Bronze Age title. With backgrounds as detailed as the main figures themselves, you can see why Barry Smith's art, especially covers, are so prized by original art collectors. In amazing condition, this piece would be the center of any fine comic cover collection. Somewhat different than the actual printed version, this was apparently an earlier version of the piece, most likely changed at the request of the editor. In many ways, however, this version is clearly superior to the version that was eventually published. This cover comes framed to an overall size of 19.5" x 14" with the art measuring approximate 10" x 15".
