DescriptionBarry Smith and Dan Adkins Conan the Barbarian #1 Page 14 Original Art (Marvel, 1970). The Bronze Age of Comics was in part ushered in with the first issue of Marvel's Conan the Barbarian. The Conan novels by Robert E. Howard had gained many fans through a popular run of paperbacks, beginning in 1966, but nothing like it had appeared in comic books until Barry Smith's version, starting with a Conan-like story in Chamber of Darkness #4, and issue #1 of Conan the Barbarian a few months later. Here's a page from that historic first issue's story, "The Coming of Conan!" with four big panels, Conan appearing in three of them. The art is in ink over graphite on heavy paper, with the first panel cut from another piece and pasted in place on an acetate overlay; lift this and you'll see Smith's original penciled version on the page. The image area is 10" x 15", and the art is in Very Good condition with minor handling wear and a slightly toned board. This is the very first page from issue #1 to come our way in 13-plus years of Comic Art auctions; we wouldn't advise waiting for another to come along!
