Earlier this year, Dynamite and Dark Horse announced a Conan/Red Sonja crossover series, to be written by Brian Wood and Gail Simone. Now Dark Horse has announced that Jim Zub, writer of the pretty fun fantasy series Skullkickers, as well as licensed comics such as Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinders, will be replacing Wood as Simone's co-writer. Zub and Simone have already hashed out the scripts to the comics, which will see the two title characters meeting up at various stages in their lives.
As for Wood's depature, it seems that there was some sort of creative differences between Simone, Wood and Dark Horse. In an interview with Bleeding Cool editor Paul Land said that "things just didn't work out" with Wood. Luckily, we like Jim Zub a lot, and he doesn't have an unfortunate history of sexually harassing creators at conventions, which means that we'll be happy to cover the Conan/Red Sonja comic again!
