    Description

    John Buscema and Alfredo Alcala - Original Splash Page Art for Savage Sword of Conan #12, "The Haunting of Castle Crimson" (Marvel, 1976). Working from a script by Roy Thomas, the art team of John Buscema and Alfredo Alcala delineate a page so beautiful, you'd hardly believe that the scenario is one of death and human misery. And highlighted at the vortex of the scene is Conan, astride his steed, surveying his conquest. For the money, we don't think you'll find a more savagely beautiful depiction of destruction rendered with such delicate linework. Overall size is 11" x 17" with an image area of 10.5" x 15". Signed by John Buscema at the top right.
