Pencils and inks by John Buscema.
Conan, Lissa, and Amalric flee the city as it falls into chaos.


Pages that are pencilled and inked by John Buscema are usually pages with fantastic, dynamic, detailed depiction of persons and no or very simple background. Maybe he wasn't interested in the background work or simply had not the time to work them out, as he worked not very fast (a reason I think, why he had numerous inker that worked on his pencils in parallel in the 70s and 80s).
This issue of Savage Sword of Conan was inked by Sonny Trinidad, except for the chapter 3 (page 41-51), where you can find this page. This chapter was inked by Big John himself. Why he did ink this chapter and not the first or second? I don't know... ;).
Thank you Thommy and Michel for letting this page go!
