With the success of the Wonder Woman solo film, it’s no surprise that a new comic book venture featuring Diana, Princess of Themyscira has just been revealed.

A joint effort between DC and Dark Horse Comics will have the Amazon fighting alongside none other than, Conan the Barbarian.

The description for the series is:

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?

The team charged with bringing what is sure to be an epic series to us consists of writer Gail Simone, artist Aaron Lopresti, inker Matt Ryan and colorist Wendy Broome.

This will not be the first time that Simone and Lopresti work together. The dynamic duo previously worked on Simone’s highly-praised Wonder Woman run for DC.

Of the Wonder Woman/Conan team-up, Simone told Den of Geek, “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.”

The Wonder Woman/Conan the Barbarian crossover event begins on September 20 and will consist of six issues.
