    Gil Kane Conan the Barbarian #12 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1971). Kane's first Conan cover! "The Most Savage Hero of All" is living up to the cover hype on this sword-swinging beaut' by the legendary action artist. We have no definitive inking attribution, though we have seen Vince Colletta and Ralph Reese credited by different sources. The cover for "The Dweller In The Dark" was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board, then trimmed and pasted onto a sheet of Sparta World Color cover Bristol board stock with a total image area of 10" x 15". The corner box figure and logo are original stat paste-ups. The header and lower caption box are recent replacements. There is some discoloration and toning on the board, and a bit of glue residue on the art near the logo and bottom caption. There is also a small slit in the image area from the time of production. Overall in Very Good condition.
