Gail Simone is returning to Wonder Woman, in a crossover with Conan. The six-issue mini-series, launching in September, with art by Aaron Lopresti, will be co-published by DC and Dark Horse.
"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."
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?
So, I get to write Wonder Woman again, get to write Conan again, and get to work with @aaronlopresti again. I LOVE THIS JOB.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) June 19, 2017
