    Description

    John Buscema and Ernie Chan Conan the Barbarian #97 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1979). A reimagining of Frank Frazetta's cover for the Conan the Avenger paperback, with one big difference: this time the woman is coming to the rescue and the barbarian is the one in chains! That woman is of course Bêlit, who only appeared on 15 covers, not nearly enough to satisfy all of the collectors who want one! A note in the bottom margin reads, "Lenny: J. B. misunderstood. Conan must be awake -- straining at chains -- snarling, etc." Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10.5" x 15.25". Stapled, with a couple of small pieces of tape at the edges and some minor bends at upper left. Very Good condition.
