Artwork Description

This cover is based on the Conan and Belit story 'Queen of the Black Coast', and just represents the heated fight sequence on the Tigress. I wanted to use the red background to enhance the mood I was trying to set. Also the parties involved wanted to shy away from Conan as a bodybuilder.

Hello, this is my favourite Conan piece of yours! Thank you for this whole gallery though, I enjoyed the art very much. Great skill and understanding of what Conan is about Smile

Plot quibble-Conan and Belit seem to be fighting the Tigress's crew. Belit was the captain Smile
nit picking aside, this a superb action scene. Really catches the dynamic of Howard's combat. Everyone LOOKS as if they are moving. Superb.

Thanks. I really enjoyed your Radioactive Hamster covers when they came out and actually those were the first few issues I started with when I was collecting.I think I also have some of the 3-D books. They were very inspirational.
