Diana of Themyscira and the Cimmerian barbarian will team up in a crossover of epic proportions for a new comic miniseries this fall, titled Wonder Woman/Conan. This sensational and savage tale is a joint DC and Dark Horse Comics team-up, written by Gail Simone and art by Aaron Lopresti.
Our tale begins as Conan the Barbarian arrives on the shores of an unknown land, and soon meets the world’s most fearsome arena fighter—Wonder Woman. Ill-fated circumstances force them both into slavery. As they attempt to free themselves from the grips of the rich and powerful slave-owner Dellos, a dark magic descends upon their land, a presence that wants to destroy them both. But who has the might to stop the most talented gladiators who have ever existed?
“I love crossovers, I love Wonder Woman, and being able to bring the undisputed greatest warriors of the DCU and Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age together for the very first time is a dream come true,” says Simone. “A major draw is getting to reunite with the great Aaron Lopresti, whose very favorite things to draw are Wonder Woman and barbarians. Its blades and bracelets, wizards and wonder and I couldn’t be more delighted.”
The first of the six-issue miniseries will arrive with art by Darick Robertson (The Boys). Also available is a variant cover by Liam Sharp (Wonder Woman). The saga begins on Wednesday, September 20, in comic stores everywhere.
