I saw this drawing by Tom Yeates over at " SINGULAR POINTS " A quite excellent blog if I may say. I just had to share. It calls to mind a pitch that I had shopped around to DARK HORSE a few years ago.
A team up of the two characters in one great adventure. I was in the second phase of my plot synopsis and drawing up some plate designs and character sheets. I was told that there will absolutely be no CONAN team ups ever not even a one shot elseworlds type hypothetical derision. In keeping with CONAN's roots and staying true to the REH vision...I completely understood. It's ok with me. But I finished my plot anyway. It is an unfinished piece but I have two issues laid out on paper and mayhaps one day I will share it with ye. It just depends on whether or not the good people would like to see it or read it.
It does of course involve time travel...of a mystical nature and a fight between our two heroes and reincarnation and mirrors and sub human ape men ( which is a big part in both authors lexicon of savagery. ) But in order for me to share or even finish my outlines...there would need to be a demand. So...in this case if anybody is interested in reading my story just let me know here in the comments. If I see a particular number of people. I'll share with you all.
In the mean time enjoy the great artwork of Tom Yeates and visit " Singular Points" http://singular--points.blogspot.com/ trust me its a great and interesting blog. Love Mikeyboy
EDIT: On a related note, there is in fact a Conan/Tarzan crossover from Turkey that's been kicking around for a long time, although it's not entirely original (some of the artwork was "borrowed" from JB via SSOC, and possibly elsewhere)...it's a fairly long story and Turkish is tough to translate, but one day I hope to post it around here in English. And I've gotta agree about Singular Points, definitely one of my regular stops on the mighty interwebs. Great stuff Charles! Cromsblood
