- Full Description
Dark and malicious magic by two scheming goddesses has driven Wonder Woman and Conan together, stripping Diana of her memories and chaining her destiny to this dark-haired and dangerous stranger. Slavers and gladiators, pirates and predators, an army of witches poised to conquer the world on wings of wickedness; these are the foes the Amazon and the Cimmerian must join together to defeat.
But first a young dark-haired girl meets a young Cimmerian lad, who plan to leave their tribes and set out for the civilized world. Is this the same woman who's now a gladiator in the arena, sans memory?
This is both respectfully written and quite beautifully drawn. Not your more typical watered-down comics fare but a strong, dramatic story with two fine characters well characterized.
All in a handsome hardcover with a cover different than the dust jacket art, plus bonus section of variant covers, including work by Neal Adams, Liam Sharp and Laura Martin, Ivan Reis and Marcelo Maiolo, and all four special variant covers by Lopresti himself, one pictured here, all very nicely done.
"Written by superstar Gail Simone (Birds of Prey) with stunning art from Aaron Lopresti (Justice League International), it's a thrilling fantasy epic..."

- Outstanding stand-alone novel
- You know, I liked the idea but was cautious about how they'd pull this off without making it a mess. Well, Gail Simone proved what a smart and capable writer she is, and this is a very, very fine story. It starts with Conan as a youth, who meets a bright young girl from another tribe at an annual gathering. A tribe of only women. Flash forward to an adult Conan, who's suddenly trying to help out a noble and ferocious fighter in the slave arena...who has no memory of who she is. Is this his childhood friend? Or is it our own Wonder Woman, who's been mysteriously transported into the Hyborean Age? Check it out, it's an outstanding, stand-alone novel I really, really enjoyed.
