Conan the Destroyer covers.


Here are both covers I did for the 2 part movie adaptation for the film. I inked the second issue also. I have the original for # 2 and posted it before. You may notice the large stupid afro on Grace's head on issue one. They added that because they disn't have the right to reproduce her likeness and they thought it looked too much like her, so they gave her the balck basket ball hairdo.

These are great.It's funny how politics can effect the outcome of a finished product.

Thanks Zane. Yeah that kinda stuff happens all the time.

I love the issue # 2 cover the most. Did you actually pencil the story as well, or was that done by another artist?

Is it my imagination or is Grace's original hair shape peeking through there?
Great work Bob, but I told you that the first time around.

Hi Weirdo,
No both issues were penciled by the great John Buscema.

Thanks Vincent,
No what that is, is the overlap of the BG ink color and the skin color on the black line art.

Hey, if you're going to do a Conan comic, you might as well have the best artist of that genre do it.

Oooooh more Conan covers! My mom's boyfriend use to buy the black & whites, but he bought a few of these and I actually remember these covers!
