Lots of Swordfighting Likely in Wonder Woman/Conan Team-Up
Dark Horse has announced that they will be publishing a six-issue Wonder Woman/Conan miniseries this fall.
Best of all, it’s by creators familiar with the Amazing Amazon. Gail Simone writes and Aaron Lopresti draws “an adventure unlike anything seen before — a collision of legends.”
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?
I have to wonder how a woman from a society of Amazons deals with the usual Conan trappings of half-clad slave girls hanging on him, but I guess fighting together gets past that. Hopefully she teaches him some grace, although based on the promo art shown, this is more about fierceness and strength.
Wonder Woman/Conan will begin September 20.
