I remember when Barry Smith drew his first comic for Marvel Comics. It was an issue of the X-Men that everybody in my neighborhood thought was THE WORST DRAWN COMIC BOOK IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. It turned out that Smith, newly arrived from England, literally drew the issue on park benches in Central Park. When the first issue of "Conan the Barbarian" arrived it was clear he was not that bad. By the time his run as artist on "Conan" ended it was even more clear he was something special and the fact that the illustrative style that had evolved in those two-year span was not feasible within the demands of producing monthly issues of a comic book was a depressing irony. Now known professionally as Barry Windsor-Smith, he has returned to comic books from time to time to update us on his growth as an illustrator.
Barry Windsor-Smith has long been my favorite "comic book artist," (for my wedding I gave my bride one of his prints, signed and dated with our names) and this collection traces his evolution as such quite admirably, even in black & white. Indeed, not other collection could better serve that purpose. A simple comparison of the covers from Conan #1 and Smith's swansong issue #24 ("The Song of Red Sonja") evidences the transformation from artist to illustrator. For that matter you can also consider Smith intermediary style (e.g., #13 "Web of the Spider-God"). This transformation is as impressive because of how quickly in took place while he was drawing Conan as it is for the artistic growth. But even in his work today you can see how it is grounded in the style he developed while working on this comic.
