SPECTACULAR SPLASH PAGES #10...
BARRY SMITH was finding his own style 'on the hoof 'with
CONAN The BARBARIAN. 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 eventu-
ally came to draw more issues of Conan than Smith did, there was
something about our boy Barry's pages that captured the sorcer-
ous HYBORIAN AGE like no other artist ever could.
