This gem is from 1984 and was titled, “What if Conan the Barbarian were Stranded in the 20th Century?” You gotta love the “What If?” series. Where else are you going to see Conan the Barbarian dressed up in the finest pimping outfit money can buy?
As you can see Conan puts on some fly duds and brings along his pet Cheetah to impress the fair Danette. But Dannette, like his movie love Valeria loves the man, not his earthly trappings. So Conan strikes out here and moves on and makes friends with Captain America and then proceeds to turn everyone in America out.
Despite looking like something out of the seventies, this issue of “What If?” was released onFebruary 1, 1984. It was written by Peter Gillis with art by Bob Hall, Ben Sean and Janice Chiang.
