CONAN THE BARBARIAN - COLOSSAL EDITION features 190+ pages of full-size 12 x 17 scans of the original comic art pages pulled from throughout the original classic run of CONAN comics and magazines. Gathered into one beautiful hardcover for the first time ever, explore the timeless works by legendary Conan artists John Buscema, Barry Windsor-Smith, Gil Kane, and a host of others in the most vivid detail possible!
Return to an age undreamed of — witness kingdoms shining like never before, and voyage with a black-haired, sullen-eyed reaver with mirths and melancholies that have literally never been this big! Pulled from throughout the original legendary run of CONAN comics and magazines, gathered into one place for the first time ever, timeless works by the greatest chroniclers of the Hyborian Age are assembled in CONAN THE BARBARIAN - COLOSSAL EDITION!
Boasting more than 190 pages of original art reproduced at their original size, allowing every detail to sing — every muscle, every sword, every drop of blood and bead of sweat — the book presents glorious full-color reproductions of the original art, from inked lineart to beautiful gray washes, and even vivid paintings from the Cimmerian’s comic book adventures.Art this good needs a worthy presentation — and master designer IAN CHALGREN (as seen on Cartoon Kayfabe) pulled out all the stops, with brand-new text pieces by writer, editor, and comics historian CHRIS RYALL (Mighty Marvel Calendar Book: A Visual History), and an original introduction by ROY THOMAS, unparalleled scribe of these timeless tales of the world’s most popular barbarian.
CONAN THE BARBARIAN - COLOSSAL EDITION is divided into three sections; the first three each shine a torchlight on the work of one of the greatest sword-and-sorcery artists of all time: JOHN BUSCEMA, GIL KANE, and BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH. Each section pulls pages from the decades of incomparable artistry that filled the pages of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, KING CONAN, THE SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN, GIANT-SIZE CONAN, SAVAGE TALES, WHAT IF, CONAN THE BARBARIAN MOVIE SPECIAL, and more!Each artist’s section is presented in chronological order, so you can see how their individual approaches changed over the course of decades, all bracketing the centerpiece of this collection — the complete story “DEVIL-WINGS OVER SHADIZAR” from CONAN THE BARBARIAN #6 by ROY THOMAS, BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH, and SAL BUSCEMA, with every page presented in full incredible detail.The book concludes with an extended section of key pages by other incredible artists — some regularly associated with CONAN and some thrilling surprises, including: ART ADAMS, NEAL ADAMS, ALFREDO ALCALA, ENRIQUE ALCATENA, ERNIE CHAN, HOWARD CHAYKIN, JOE CHOIDO, TIM CONRAD, GEOF ISHERWOOD, GARY KWAPISZ, JIM LEE, ESTEBAN MAROTO, JOHN MCCREA, RUDY NEBRES, ALEX NINO, KEVIN NOWLAN, TONY SALMONS, BILL SIENKIEWICZ, ALEX TOTH, and JORGE ZAFFINO.
