SPECTACULAR SPLASH PAGES #10...
Young BARRY SMITH was still finding his own style 'on the hoof' with CONAN The BARBARIAN when he drew this page. Now and again there was still an occasional hint of JACK KIRBY in some panels, but that wasn't to last. JOHN BUSCEMA would have been the first artist on the mag had it not been for his higher page rate, but though he eventually came to draw more issues of Conan than Smith did, there was something about our boy Barry's pages that captured the sorcerous HYBORIAN AGE like no other artist ever could.
