    John Buscema Marvel Comics Super Special #21 Conan the Barbarian Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1982). A true collector's item -- this is surely John Buscema at his finest -- worthy of a place in even the most discriminating collection. How about this look at Conan's origin, as well as the barbarian's father? Based on the movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, this story was later printed as the Conan the Barbarian Movie Special #1 and 2. Fully penciled and inked by the late, great "Big John," this splash is the work of a master -- drawing the barbaric character he most enjoyed. This piece was shown on page 120 of the book John Buscema, Michelangelo of Comics (Hermes Publishing, 2010). This page has an image area of approximately 10" x 13.5", and aside from clipped margin corners, it's in Excellent condition.
