Viking Apes!

Nothing says winter like gorillas in Viking dress. (Click on the image for a more detailed look.)

This is the cover art for issue 26 of Marvel's 1970s Planet of the Apes magazine. I don't have this one but I really need to locate it eventually. As an avowed Apes fanatic the idea of combining them with Vikings conjures a movie starring Charlton Heston and Kirk Douglas that ends with a bloody axe duel on a beach in front of the Statue of Liberty.

Mario Bava should direct. And Cameron Mitchell should play a significant role. Yeah....
