honored to be working with a property like Conan,” explained
Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces. “We went
into this deal with the intention of premiering pieces by
one artist who had committed to creating his first-ever depiction
of the venerable barbarian – Alex Ross. We’ll
be producing the first-ever lithograph and statue based on
this powerful new interpretation on Conan!”
Buscema is one of my all time favorite artists, and the work
he did on Conan remains the definitive version to me. For
this one-time painting, I’m channeling all of my inner
Buscema for this piece, and I look forward to seeing it as
both a litho, and then a statue,” stated Alex Ross on
what drew him to working on this.

edition resin statues featuring images of Conan, with the
first piece scheduled to be a re-creation of Alex Ross’
