No, the one above is not a Sphere/Lancer edition. It is a Bantam cover by Bob Larkin. Not sure how much it appeals to the pulp readers, but I, for sure, have got an appetite for Frank Frazetta and prefer him over Larkin.
When Lancer decided to re-print Robert E. Howard’s Conan books , it fell on the able shoulders of Frazetta to work on the cover art. Frazetta, who also produced paintings for Burroughs’ Barsoom and Tarzan series, revolutionized the genre of sword and sorcery with his interpretation of Conan. Let’s take a look at some of the Sphere/Lancer covers of Conan books (below).
