Greetings all! Reading through some old issues of Conan the Barbarian, Spider-Man and Batman pencilled by Gil Kane, I've picked up a trend in his artwork, and I'd like to share it with you guys to get an idea of how well-known this trend is.

Now, what is that trend? The long and short of it is this:



This particular shot, drawn from a low angle and highlighting the bottom of people's noses.

More nasal fun, under the cut )

DISCLAIMER: I have nothing against Gil Kane and his art (I wouldn't have put effort into scanning and cropping these if I really disliked it), just intrigued by the prevalence of this particular shot and focus on the nose in general.

Greetings True Believers! Conan of Cimmeria is well-known for settling arguments with his sword or axe but did you also know his words are as powerful as his thews? Watch as Conan makes an entire village go "Oh, Snap!" and puts a prideful wench in her place!

Plus as an added treat, a great piece of Conan art by Neal Adams!

Greetings True Believers! As you may know, I love Conan of Cimmeria. And I love all the old Marvel comics he was in.

Walt Simonson has just about drawn every major character for every major publisher throughout the last thirty-odd years. Best known for his work on Thor, Starslammers, Fantastic Four, Battlestar Galactica and Orion, Simonson’s style has always been lauded as having the energy to rival Jack Kirby’s. But just as his legendary predecessor’s work was seen, all of the subtlety in Simonson’s work is often overlooked. Even in the most frantic piece, Simonson manages give it a quiet sense of characterization.

Hell, he just draws purty, OK?

Since I can easily make thirty different posts based on his covers alone, I’ve posted some of my personal favorite comics and covers by Simonson.

So Conan the Barbarian really gets around.  Almost every issue of his adventures there's a new bikini-clad babe for him to score with, walk off into the sunset with, and then ditch in time for the next issue.  But with all this action, there's a suspicious lack of Conan Juniors running around.  Savage Sword of Conan #29 supplies a definitive answer to the all-important question: is Conan shooting blanks?

Greetings True Believers! I bring you a funny bit from The Savage Sword of Conan vol. 1. It's your standard Cimmerian set-up. Evil wizard menacing a village, Conan wanders by and kills villains/steals gold/bangs wenches. But this one part made me laugh my ass off and I have decided to share it with you. Enjoy!
