Conan the Barbarian: Death covered in Gold #3 Pg.16

Comic Strip
Published page


Very last published issue by John Buscema in 1999 and the last Conan mini series by Marvel as Marvel didn‘t renew their license by Howard after 30 years of constant publications (most of them drawn by Big John who died 2 years later).
After several years of stepping out of Conan, this last three issues were once again done by Roy Thomas and the 72-year old John Buscema (pencils and inks). So the issue 3 is the farewell issue of one of the best comic artists that worked in the industry. And here (and on my other page) you see that he added far more detail to each panel then he usually did. Both pages have a little bit of Hal Foster grandeur and Buscema-own dynamic.

John Buscema, born Giovanni Natale Buscema (December 11, 1927 – January 10, 2002), was an American comic-book artist and one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics during its 1960s and 1970s ascendancy into an industry leader and its subsequent expansion to a major pop culture conglomerate. His younger brother Sal Buscema is also a comic-book artist. Buscema is best known for his run on the series The Avengers and The Silver Surfer, and for over 200 stories featuring the sword and sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. In addition, he pencilled at least one issue of nearly every major Marvel title, including long runs on two of the company's top magazines Fantastic Four and Thor.He was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2002.
