Wonder Woman/Conan #1 (DC/Dark Horse)

Wonder Woman/Conan #1 (DC/Dark Horse)

Gail Simone (w) Aaron Lopestri (a)

Two of my favourite comic book characters are Wonder Woman and Conan so teaming them up, bizarre as that might seem is a great idea. DC and Dark Horse (the current licence holders of Conan) have produced what promises to be a great 6-issue mini series.


Conan manages to embroil himself with a half-wit debtor who takes him in search of gold to see a gladiatorial match for a wager. The fight will be a walkover as the one to bet against is a "mere woman".

However this is no "mere" woman. This is Wonder Woman captured by slavers and Conan has met her before as a child in the distant past. Attempting a rescue Conan manages to get himself captured and is to be pitted against Diana in the arena.

To be continued........

Great start to this story with the mystery of Wonder Woman's memory loss to be resolved. Out Now!
