Barry Windsor-Smith’s Back Pages

Every day this month I will share with you the first (at least as far as I know) U.S. professional work by a notable comic book creator. Here is an archive of the creators who have been featured so far.

Today’s featured creator is Barry Windsor-Smith!


After first coming to prominence as the artist on the Conan the Barbarian comic for Marvel during the 1970s, Barry Windsor-Smith went on to create a number of stunning pieces of comic book work, especially as his style got more and more ornate as time went by. A wonderful storyteller as an artist, Windsor-Smith eventually took his talents to the writing side of things, as well.

When Windsor-Smith started in comics, though, he was barely 20 years old in late 1968. His first assignment was February 1969’s X-Men #53…

The next month, he also drew Daredevil #50…

Eventually he was forced to return to his home country of the United Kingdom, but his career kept going and a couple of years later, Conan hit big and he became a household name (well, at least in households that know comic book artists).
