Random Panels of Comic Book Weirdness # 22


From the first appearance of Red Sonja in Marvel's CONAN THE BARBARIAN # 24 way back in late 1972, here's a panel of some background characters discussing a fight Conan has started ostensibly to protect Sonja's "honor." Their dialogue--especially when you consider that artist Barry (Windsor-)Smith is British--seems a bit questionable as to how it got past the Comics Code. By the way, the guy in the lower right hand corner of the panel looks quite a bit like Smith looked at the time!
