Savage Sword of Conan #57 - Nestor Redondo cover

Savage Sword of Conan v1 #57, 1980 - A rampaging Conan tears through the enemy on this Nestor Redondo cover. His berserk expression, harsher than the rest on the painting, may have been executed better. Redondo does fit both barbarian and horse within a nicely cleaved out space. This is number 8 of 10 Savage Sword of Conan issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or Savage Sword of Conan issues.

Pictorial Romances #21 - Matt Baker art & cover


Pictorial Romances v1 #21, 1953 - Visiting a sorority sister in New York, a suburban housewife yearns to be single once again. She subsequently begins dating various men, coming dangerously close to being sexually assaulted. Matt Baker nicely contrasts the woman's simple life with the glamour and prestige of the big city. Not surprisingly, the women are beautifully dressed and artfully posed. Baker's work from the 1950s always conveyed a high degree of sophistication. This story of infidelity and his (unrelated) cover design are no exceptions. This is number 18 of 21 Pictorial Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Pictorial Romances issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
