Gil Kane: Conan the Barbarian in the Revolutionary War 1776?

If you could imagine the craziest team-up involving Conan the Barbarian, what would it be?  Conan and Spider-Man?  Conan and Thor?  Conan and Dracula?  I Say They Nay...the wackiest time travelling team-up of all time is....

And just for you, true believers, here is the Merry Month of the Barbarian: April.  Packed with images from Barry Smith and others.  Nice little tidbits of information, such as April 22nd is Steve Englehart's birthday--and the 26th was George Tuska's.
