WONDER WOMAN and CONAN THE BARBARIAN Crossover Mini-Series Coming Soon

They’re both movie stars, are both badasses with a sword, and have luxurious and flowing dark hair. They’re Wonder Woman and Conan the Barbarian, and the two comic book icons are finally meeting up for a team-up that took way too long to happen.

Announced Monday by DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics (via CBR), writer Gail Simone, who famously scripted Wonder Woman’s adventures several years back, is writing a Wonder Woman/Conan crossover series from the two publishers.

For this series, Gail Simone is reuniting with her former collaborator on the Wonder Woman ongoing comic, artist Aaron Lopresti, now joined by inker Matt Ryan and colorist Wendy Broome. The six-issue series is set to arrive in late-September, and here’s first issue’s official description, along with the cover to issue #1.

“What makes one a legend? How do legends carve their name into history, when countless others are forgotten? Wonder Woman and Conan the Barbarian are destined by the fates to be legendary, but when their stories collide, will both emerge victorious, or will the fickle Gods cut their lives short?”

Although Gail Simone has written Conan spin-off character Red Sonja in the past, this is her first time writing Conan himself. In a statement, 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.”

Even if this wasn’t a crossover fans have wanted to see for years, the return of Gail Simone to writing the adventures of Princess Diana is an event by itself. Hopefully this is the first of many new Simone written new adventures for Wonder Woman on the horizon.

The six-issue Wonder Woman/Conan The Barbarian crossover will hit stands on September 20
