Description

    Gil Kane, John Buscema, and John Romita Sr. Conan the Barbarian #46 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1975). Gil Kane provided a breakdown from which John Buscema turned in a finished cover image for this issue, but "Jazzy" John Romita (then Marvel's Art Director) jazzed it up with some more details and a bit of white paint to bring out some of the features. Three huge comic talents all working on one piece and one of the only times we can think of that this all-star band played together! It was written up in Comic Reader #111 (late 1974). Buscema must have lightboxed from the breakdown, as this matches very close and yet the original rough breakdown is still out there on the market. This page is produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". There is glue residue on the top half of the page, with a bit of production oil stain in the bottom left corner and a few dots throughout. The logo, header, and corner box are all stat paste-up, with glue residue around the edges. The two cover captions are paste-up as well. Overall in Good condition.
