Stunning Conan the Barbarian art by Batman: Reptilian artist Liam Sharp up for sale

If you’ve perhaps won the lottery, or are a serious art collector, then this stunning Conan the Barbarian art by Liam Sharp is up for sale – for $18,000.

Titled Conan: Black Colossus, this painting was first used as a book cover for the successful RPG series Conan the Mercenary, published by Modiphius. It is also the dust jacket cover for Liam’s new crowdfunded art book, Encore: Gold, and also features inside the book.

The art is available for sale via New York-based art sellers Albert Moy.

“It is certainly the best Conan art I’ve done – a rarity in itself!” Says Liam, “but it’s been made even more special due to the fact it is my chosen cover, so the (negotiable) price reflects that. I sincerely hope it finds a wonderful home.”

Liam is currently working on Batman: Reptilian, written by Garth Ennis, the first issue out this week, which looks just incredible.

What strikes fear into the hearts of those who terrorise Gotham?
It used to be Batman, but something far more frightening than a mere man stalks the shadows, and it’s after Gotham’s villains.

How savage must a monster be to haunt the dreams of monsters? Pick up this dark and bone-chilling tale by comics legends Garth Ennis and Liam Sharp to find out!
