This issue is highly-regarded by fans, and many consider it one of the best from the team of Buscema and DeZuniga. Based on the famed short story "A Witch Shall Be Born" by Robert E. Howard, it was adapted by Roy Thomas for this issue. Parts of Howard's story were also used in the 1982 Conan movie. Buscema penciled and "The Tribe" of artists listed above inked the story. Produced in ink and ink wash over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10.5" x 15". The page is slightly toned, with creasing in the top right of Panel 1, there's also a hand-lettered text paste-up in Panel 1, and glue residue in the last panel. Overall, in Very Good condition.
