    Herb Trimpe - Unpublished Conan Pages 1-6 and Complete 12-Page Story Preliminary Artwork Original Art Group of 18 (Marvel, c. 1990s). Herb Trimpe had completed the pencils on all 12 pages of the story "His Father's Son!", when he was ask to "draw like Liefeld" as that was what was selling best at the time. The result is nothing short of spectacular, as a well-entrenched long-time artist with his own style can seemingly flip a switch and draw in a completely different style... and do it better! This group contains all 12 of the original pure graphite pencils on Duotone board, and in addition, Pages 1-6 of the re-worked re-Imaged artwork. It really strikes us as a cross between Rob Liefeld and Marc Silvestri. Simply fascinating to compare those first six pages against their counterparts. Trimpe inked and applied the Duotone chemical shading on those pages. Panel 1 on the inked page is an original art paste-up, and several of the text panels are paste-ups as well. In Excellent condition.
