LEGENDS COLLIDE IN NEW WONDER WOMAN/CONAN CROSSOVER

The wondrous Diana of Themyscira comes face to face with the Cimmerian barbarian Conan in a new miniseries this fall—Wonder Woman/Conan. DC and Dark Horse have teamed up for a crossover of epic proportions, bringing back fan-favorite Wonder Woman writer Gail Simone and Wonder Woman artist Aaron Lopresti for an adventure unlike anything seen before—a collision of legends.

“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?

Wonder Woman has been a pivotal character in the DC Universe for over 75 years as a member of the Trinity and the Justice League, and as a notable icon around the world. Conan the Barbarian, similarly, has long been an important character since his creation 85 years ago. Dark Horse has been publishing Conan stories since 2003, and new and exciting tales continue to hit shelves.

“Uniting the greatest characters of the DC Universe with some of the most famous and notable characters in pop culture is at the core of the most memorable crossovers we’ve ever done,” said DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras. “Gail and Aaron’s series will surely create a new legend for fans and readers to talk about for years to come.”

A tale of myths and magic, Simone and Lopresti bring to life a new world for these two heroes—weaving a story of fantasy, mythos and adventure. The six-issue saga begins September 20.

“King Conan” returns for a final battle

Dark Horse Comics announces the return of a fan-favorite Conan creative team: Writer Timothy Truman, artist Tomás Giorello, and colorist José Villarrubia are set to expand on Robert E. Howard’s unfinished “Wolves beyond the Border” tale!

King Conan grows weary of the crown. When an old soldier visits him with talk of a cursed relic and rumors of Pictish tribes preparing a full-scale invasion on Aquilonia’s borders, Conan eagerly embarks on what could be his final adventure!

King Conan: Wolves beyond the Border #1 (of 4) is in stores December 23, 2015. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop.

Praise for Timothy Truman, Tomás Giorello, and José Villarrubia:

“With both King Conan: The Scarlet Citadel and King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword Truman, Giorello, and Villarrubia have been making some of the greatest Conan adaptations ever made.”—Comics Bulletin

“This comic really makes me remember what it was that originally drew me to the Barbarian. The sense of fun, larger than life gonzo action, imaginative storytelling, and a kind of high fantasy approach that’s grounded in big characters and 80s machismo that’s just infectiously delicious; highly recommended.”—Front Towards Gamer

“This book is dirty, nasty, gritty, and quite possibly the best Conan book Dark Horse Comics has ever put out.”—Newsarama

“King Conan is a triumph of execution, that places worthwhile odds within our hero’s epic quest. Highly recommended.”—Unleash the Fanboy

Sneak peek at Dark Horse Comic’s “Conan The Barbarian” #1

Dark Horse Comics has sent us the first eight pages of their new “Conan The Barbarian” comic. Created by Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan, Dark Horse boasts that this comic is the perfect jumping-on point for new readers of one of the most-requested Conan stories of all time.

In this sweeping adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s fan-favorite “Queen of the Black Coast,” Conan turns his back on the civilized world and takes to the high seas alongside the pirate queen Bêlit, setting the stage for an epic of romance, terror, and swashbuckling. This is Conan as you’ve never seen him, with the combination of one of Robert E. Howard’s greatest tales and the most dynamic creative team in comics!
