Starring Conan the Barbarian!—
Big John Buscema was born Dec. 11, 1927, and was one of the pillars of the House of Ideas. The Marvel mainstay worked on an enormous number of characters and titles but this year I’ve decided to dedicate our 13 COVERS salute to one of his best-known: Conan!
Buscema died in 2002, but his art and legacy very much live on.
(My standard caveat: This is a subjective list and not a ranking of any kind. This is pretty much what I dig and you may feel very differently. So, rather than beef about a cover you don’t see, instead join in the fun and share your own choices in the comments section or in whatever social-media thread you saw this.)
