Barry Windsor-Smith


As “Barry Smith,” Barry Windsor Smith became an immediate fan favorite in the early 1970s as penciler for Marvel’s Conan the Barbarian. After pursuing a fine-arts career, producing limited-edition fantasy-themed prints, he returned to Marvel in the 1980s, drawing and coloring Machine Man and writing and drawing “Weapon X,” his own take on Wolverine. In the early 1990s he served as creative director and lead artist at Valiant Comics. Since that time his work has been published by Malibu, Dark Horse, Image, and Fantagraphics. Inducted 2008
