    Han Hale - Barbarian Comics Cover Original Art Group (California Comics/Bob Sidebottom, 1972-74). When Marvel published the first issue of Conan the Barbarian, back in 1970, it created a ripple in fandom that grew and spread, even into the so-called Underground Comix genre. In fact, this no-holds barred, adults-only format was a perfect match for the nudity and violence that went hand-in-hand with a title like Barbarian Comix. Our offering is the original art to issues #2 and 3 of the series published by Bob Sidebottom, along with a separate illustration, and a cover proof for issue #1, which has been mounted on board. The cover to #2 is ink and watercolor on textured board which has been mounted to a piece of bristol; the image size is approximately 10" x 14", in Very Good condition. Issue #3's cover is ink on bristol mounted on another piece of bristol, with a printed logo pasted on; the art image area is approximately 6" x 7", and in in Excellent condition. The third piece is ink & watercolor on board measuring 5.5" x 9"; it's mounted on bristol, and is in Excellent condition. A great assortment of art, by Crom!
