Sure, it was pretty neat when the JLA met the Avengers. And Archie Vs. Punisher deserves a fond place in everyone's heart, forever. But the best crossover of all time is coming soon: Groo the Wanderer versus Conan the Barbarian. Only one of these titanic heroes can prevail.
How did we go so long without this masterpiece appearing on our shelves? For those who missed it, Groo the Wanderer is a long running series by Mad Magazine cartoonist Sergio Aragones, with writing by Jack Kirby expert Mark Evanier.
