    Gil Kane and Tom Sutton Giant-Size Conan #1 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1974). What more could you ask for in a Conan cover? This Bronze Age blockbuster has it all -- the great Gil Kane's large, definitive rendition of our hero, single-handedly battling an army of warriors with bloody sword poised for another strike. This iconic image hails from the peak period of Conan's comic book adventures. And as Robert E. Howard fans know, "The Hour of the Dragon" was the only novel-length Conan tale. Some Marvel art experts think that John Romita Sr. may have worked on the dragon figure in the background. This art has an image area of 10" x 15", and is in Excellent condition. This Sword and Sorcery spectacular has been matted alongside a copy of the comic book, a typeset quote, and a Conan medallion, and the piece has been framed to an overall size of 27" x 23.5".

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
