I Am So In Geek Heaven Right Now
You may have heard, our new President is a collector of Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comics. If you do the math (uh, let's see, he's 47, and most kids reach their peak interest in comics around age 12, which leads me to suspect he read Spider-Man thirty-five years ago, which would have been 1973, which means... OMG, he knows I killed Gwen Stacy!) you'll realize the Spider-Man stories he read were probably those written by yours truly, and the Conan comics he collects are most likely those scribed by my buddy Roy Thomas.
Which makes this Onion article all the funnier for me, particularly the reference to Conan the Destroyer.
