"Savage Sword of Conan" by Alfredo Alcala

I recently acquired this comic page from Savage Sword of Conan #89, Page 23, by Alfredo Alcala from 1983. 

What is quite fascinating about this original is that it's drawn on very thin paper. The paper is not thicker than regular copy machine paper. The artist probably chose this paper because of its stipple texture. The paper is so thin that they needed to put the speech balloons on a separate acetate overlay otherwise the original drawing will be wrinkled.
