Tony Harris drew a wonderful cover for the 24th issue of the US-comic “Conan”. Unfortunately, he did not entirely comply with the publisher’s conditions to draw the woman on the cover scantily dressed in lingerie. Instead, Harries drew the woman so that she was naked! And since this comic with a naked woman on its cover sells only badly, the woman just had to become scantily dressed.
Eventually, the publishing company made an offer to the illustrator which he agreed on.
The version showing the naked woman was supposed to be released at some place if only he drew a clothed version for the cover of the magazine.
At the end of the day, the cover picture of Conan #24 contained a scantily dressed woman, whereas the naked version was released in “Conan and the Demons of Khitai #3” as a small preview on the page featuring the letters to the editor.
Here, we see the unchanged Indian-ink version of the cover picture.
On the first picture, we see the uncensored display from "Conan and the Demons of Khitai #3".
On picture number two, we see the final and more harmless cover picture of the comic book.
