Dollar Bin Digging 09

 

 

 

Conan #241

Following the recent news that Marvel will be giving us a bunch of Conan variants in Dec/Jan; I thought now was a good time to spotlight our favorite Barbarian. I am looking forward to the new series by Jason Aaron, Mahmud Asrar, and Esad Ribic.

We should all keep our eyes peeled for a couple awesome Conan covers from late in the run of the original Marvel series. So as you flip past all those old Conan books you may not care about in the bins, file this McFarlane image in your mental rolodex. It’s worth the effort.

Conan #242

How do you follow a McFarlane Conan cover? Why, with a Jim Lee cover of course. So this is another issue that Marvel used their top end talent on for this 3 part crossover with Red Sonja. If you have them in the stable, why not use cover art by one of your big guns? This was 1991, just before the boys decided to bolt to start Image Comics, so this was at the height of their popularity.

So be on the lookout for this bad boy while you dig. It would be a good idea to also look for #243 which is a Whilce Portacio cover. The final part of this storyline and another book worth picking up if the opportunity presents itself.
