'Wonder Woman/Conan' Crossover Comic Book Coming This Fall
What is best in life? How about a team-up between DC's iconic first lady of superheroics and Robert E. Howard's cimmerian barbarian that also sees a reunion between two fan-favorite Wonder Woman creators? This fall expect swords, lassos and sorcery in the new Wonder Woman/Conan comic book.
The six-issue series, co-published by DC Entertainment and Dark Horse, will see Gail Simone and Aaron Lopresti — who collaborated on a Wonder Woman run from 2007-2010 — reunite to bring Conan to a strange new world, where he soon comes face-to-face with its most terrifying gladiator: Wonder Woman. Who is responsible for their new situation, and why?
In a statement accompanying the announcement, Simone said, "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. A major draw is getting to reunite with the great Aaron Lopresti, whose very favorite things to draw are Wonder Woman and barbarians. It's blades and bracelets, wizards and wonder and I couldn't be more delighted."
Wonder Woman/Conan is set to launch in comic book stores and digitally Sept. 20.
