Now, for all you frantic fearsome fans of sword and sorcery author ROBERT E. HOWARD's Cimmerian hero, you're in for a special treat.  Here's the young CONAN The BARBARIAN in his very first MARVEL COMICS outing - originally from CTB #1, and reprinted in the first of an eleven issue series of CONAN CLASSIC.  Written by ROY (The BOY) THOMAS and drawn by BARRY (WINDSOR) SMITH.  Enjoy - and feel free to leave a comment you-know-where.

And if you'd like to see Big JOHN BUSCEMA's much later version of the same tale, then click here.

I like this era of Barry Smith because he is beginning to leave the steranko/kirby influences behind and find himself,and this is enough to hook in the straggler fans of the steranko/kirby fanbase among many others..
I also liked the Ka-Zar comics by Barry ,which are done in a similar style.

I was watching an interview with Barry giving his opinion on Jack Kirby and he was a humble fanboy.
Did I tell you I liked Barry Smith.

baab, be honest now and stop beating about the bush - do you like Barry Smith or don't you?
