Conan the Barbarian Vs...Groo the Wanderer?

There definitely better be cheese dip involved.

Every once in a while we get some...interesting press releases from the publishers. One that was sent late Friday immediately caught my attention. It was definitely something I needed the weekend to think over. Dark Horse Comics has announced GROO VS. CONAN.

What was rumored as an April Fools’ joke has turned into a full-blown miniseries sure to bring laughs and excitement. Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce Groo vs. Conan!

It had to happen: The most heroic warrior in history meets the stupidest, as Robert E. Howard’s immortal Conan the Barbarian crosses swords with Sergio Aragonés’s Groo the Wanderer in Groo vs. Conan #1!

This four-issue miniseries was concocted by the Eisner Award–winning team of Mark Evanier and Sergio Aragonés, aided by master illustrator Thomas Yeates and master colorist Tom Luth. Will Conan annihilate Groo? Will Groo turn out to be the man who can defeat Conan? We’ll see.

It's such an incredible idea and "too good to be true," as they put it. It's set for release on April 18, 2012. There are so many questions that could be answered if this can actually happen. Who is the better swordsman? Will they fight or somehow get along? Will there be cheese dip? At least Rufferto is in the picture above. My fingers are crossed that this isn't a cruel joke on Dark Horse's part.

This is where genius and insanity hold each other's hands and go play hopscotch in a minefield.
