Wally Wood's Conan

In the 1950's, Wood did the covers for some of the Robert E. Howard Conan novels. At the time, Conan--and Howard in general--were relatively unknown outside of sci-fi/fantasy fandom and were essentially cult objects. Here, from THE WALLACE WOOD CHECKLIST, is a larger version of Wood's cover rough for THE RETURN OF CONAN.

  1. I bet there's a ton of "pre-Frazetta" CONAN material out there that culd be collected somewhere (online at a blog if nowhere else), as well as a lot of pre-Marvel CONAN comics (Bill Schelly reprinted one story, if memory serves).
