    Mark Schultz Robert E. Howard's Conan of Cimmeria Volume 1 (1932-1933) Illustration for "Black Colossus" Original Art (Wandering Star Books of Great Britain, 2003). Many an artist has been inspired by Robert E. Howard's "Black Colossus" -- from Margaret Brundage in the glory days of Weird Tales magazine, through John Buscema during Marvel Comics' Conan period, on to Ned Dameron and Manuel Perez "Sanjulian" Clemente. Schultz joined that elite company with an elaborate suite of illustrations for Wandering Star Books' definitive collection of Conan tales. Here is one example of Schultz's finery, dazzling in its minute detail and emotive power. Ink (dry-brush and fine-point pen) over graphite on Bristol board. With an image area of 8" x 5". In Excellent condition.
