Infantino Conan

   As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Carmine Infantino passed away this week. I thought I would put up a couple of random pages from his only Conan story, an adaptation of the Lin Carter/L. Sprague de Camp pastiche "Lair of the Ice Worm" from the pages of Savage Sword of Conan issue #34. Though the lovely inking of Alfredo Alcala somewhat hides Infantino's drawing style, the layout is unmistakably Infantino. The story itself is pretty lackluster, even by de Camp/Carter standards, but the art is great.

Agreed about the art. That full page spread is a thing of beauty!

Yeah, wish Infantino had done more Conan. Great stuff.
