The Savage Sword of Conan Vol II
In addition to the grandeur of the character, it was a special honor for Simone to make the omnibus cover of the works of one of his greatest Masters (and dear persoanle friend) John Buscema. The facial features are an homage to, and an attempt to reinterpret, Buscema's classic Conan, who in the collective imagination has become the iconic reference point for this character.
One of Simone's favorite paintings of his entire career. One of the very few instances of paintings on canvas, and measuring 50 x 70 cm.
