Found it on someone's myspace.com page I think, a few weeks ago:



Looks also quite close to the typical King Conan pieces...

The illustrator is Jean-Michel Nicollet (I believe he did most of, if not all the covers from this very famous French collection), and I think this one is from late 1979/early 1980... study

The Conan gallery at the bottom mixes Nicollet's artwork with Frazetta's, Boris', etc.

PS: Nicollet's version of Christophe Lambert as Conan:

By the way, the Kull book at Neo's was first published in 1979, I suppose the first edition had this Nicollet illustration as a cover (mine is a reprint from 1984).
