Lord Of The Black Corsairs by Barry Smith

 Third time's the charm.  This is up twice in the wayback, but I just saw Barry's watercolor of it (first image) and oh. my. heck.  Somehow reminded me of Frazetta's watercolor rough of Conan the Buccaneer, which eventually led to Conan the Destroyer, which inspired Barry (and a great Cap'n America by Steranko)


  1. Captain America 113 1968
    Conan the Buccaneer 1971
    Time traveling inspiration?

    1. Yeah, regretted that parenthetical since I wrote it (but what else is new?). We were actually playing King Of The Mountain in the fifties
