The Citadel At The Center Of Time

The Citadel At The Center Of Time
Written by Roy Thomas, art by John Buscema and Alfredo Alcala
from Conan Saga issue 15 (July 1988)

This story first was printed in Savage Sword of Conan issue 7 (August 1975) before Marvel recycled it for a reprinting in Conan Saga thirteen years later.

As with most of Alcala's work on SSoC, the breakdowns / layouts were done by Buscema. But for all practical purposes the artwork is Alcala's. 

And it's amazing artwork, too. This tale features a sabretooth tiger, manimals, a T. rex, and exotic cities. As well as scantily clad dancing girls, ever a staple of SSoC..........
