According to Wikipedia, Tony DeZuniga “was the first Filipino comic book artist whose work was accepted by American publishers, paving the way for many other Filipino artists to do break into the international comic book industry.” He passed away yesterday.
Last year my sister bought a print (shown on the left) by DeZuniga (the initials “adz” are on the lower right) and gave it to me as a gift. The print is signed (but not numbered) and the paper size is 13 inches by 19 inches. (I made some minor edits to the edges of the picture.)
The print is apparently a pinup (on page 57) from Savage Sword of Conan #59. (The picture on the right was taken from here.)
