We have been graced with a new legendary crossover! It’s finally here! A crossover between two god-like characters. This September, we get to share a new Wonder Woman/Conan world with legendary writer Gail Simone and exceptional artist Aaron Lopresti. We can’t ignore their unforgettable run with Wonder Woman. So many high hopes for this pair reuniting.
As if this crossover didn’t take long enough. Where does this adventure begin? Soon after Conan washes ashore an unknown, mysterious land, he crosses paths with our daring, fearless Diana, Princess of the Amazons. Quickly, they find trouble, lots of trouble and are forced into slavery by the powerful slave-owner Dellos. We can be sure to see a face-off in a gladiator arena between the Amazon Princess and the Barbarian. Bring it on. But what I am most excited about is who will stop the mighty force that is Wonder Woman and Conan? Who will dare to take down our fearless DC warriors? Let’s find out!
Simone said in a recent statement “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. Its blades and bracelets, wizards and wonder and I couldn’t be more delighted.”
Simone also tweeted (what’s that, you’re not following her on Twitter? What have you been doing with your life? Follow her!):
So, I get to write Wonder Woman again, get to write Conan again, and get to work with @aaronlopresti again. I LOVE THIS JOB.
