I still have about 100 issues of SSOC. I still look through them for inspiration.

I hope you don't mind, but I did a version of this cover. Here's the link [link]

This cover art has thought me a lot of things about illustration. At first I was simply amazed by the imposing figure of Conan, but hen I looked at it again, and again... Man, after all these years, It still speaks to me as an illustrator. This is one of the best, most accurate portraits of any hero. Its all there, all the concept, all the character's mythology, in all of its glory, with the use of very few elements.

Frazzetta painted the ultimate Conan battle scenes, at the absolute dramatic climax of them. But this one, this is the ultimate "(anti)hero thriumph" depiction.

Everytime I look at this, I can hear the loud drums of the original Conan movie (1983) soundtrack. Every single time.

Thank you for that, Joe.
