Conan The Haymaker!

Here's a glimpse of the earliest comic book Conan in what amounts to an "outtake" from Conan the Barbarian #1.

Here's a link with some more detail, but essentially this seems to be an image from the debut Conan comic story "The Coming of Conan" by Barry Smith which was deemed to superhero-like for the pulp sword and sorcery hero. His punch to the jaw of the offending demon was seen as too much like Daredevil or Spidey and so was excised from the final comic.

It's cool to see it though.

Rip Off
