Original pencils by John.


What was best than a team involving John Buscema and Neal Adams and his crew on Conan ?

Besides John inking himself, very tough to reach that level.

With the Conan # 119 splash it seems I specialized in Tavern scene :), but this one done in 1974 brings a lot of memory.
Graciously offered by the incomparable pencils of John Buscema, the talented inks of Neal Adams and Russ Heath who use his brush at least on the two beautifully inked people on the right bottom corner. If it's not enough more to see on the back of the page. Pencils and inks by Big John, see additional picture.
