Remembering Artist John Buscema

Remembering the "big" art of artist John Buscema (December 11, 1927 - January 10, 2002) with a look at his covers for Conan The Barbarian, from the Marvel Treasury Edition line.

John did a lot of big art in his time at Marvel, but few were as big as these covers covering Robert E. Howard's best known character.

John did the covers for three editions of the Marvel Treasury Edition featuring Conan the Barbarian:  #15 (inked by Ernie Chan) for 1977, #19 (which is all John's work) for 1978, and #23 (inked by Joe Sinnott).

These included reprints from the Savage Sword of Conan as well, which, for these treasuries, were presented in color, instead of their original black and white, as well as many pages of pin-up art, with the last edition also including a sample from the Conan newspaper strip.
