Michael Golden Kull the Conqueror Covers

Kull the Conqueror 8 cover by Michael Golden 1985

Michael Golden provided three terrific covers for Kull the Conqueror in 1984-85.  My favorite cover is the one above, with the Executioner in the black and white background, providing a terrific contrast to Kull in the foreground.  Golden knocks himself out drawing all the jewelry and details on Kull's cape, waist, and feet.

The cover to issue #5 is probably the least impressive, but still visually exciting. 

Marvel Barbarian Revelation #1: I just noticed the Roman aqueduct in the background.  Conan is set way before Roman times and Kull is set way before Conan.  Man, those Atlanteans weren't so barbaric after all.

Kull the Conqueror 6 cover by Michael Golden 1984

Now this cover to issue #6  explodes with both action and color.  The background demon figures are all in green, allowing the three main characters to pop out.  I love the expression on that babe's face as she realized her predicament.

Marvel Barbarian Revelation #2: King Kull really had much better fashion sense that Conan, didn't he?  Nuff Said!
