This week Steranko bludgeons us with 3 archetypal sword-and-sorcery images, filled with biceps, babes, bodies and broadswords:

To quote Rose Tyler: "Blimey, you can smell the testosterone!"

Creatures On The Loose 21 and 22 ( Jan. / March 1973 )
Epic Illustrated 19 ( Aug. 1983 )


Soundtrack: All Along The Watchtower, Purple Haze, Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix

Thanks for commenting, guys. I would have loved to see Steranko draw a full S&S strip like Conan, that would have been amazing. Hey Jim, there's still time!
