What is good in life? This new Wonder Woman/Conan crossover comic series bringing the gallant Princess of Themyscira into the cruel Hyborian Age of Robert E. Howard's sword-swinging barbarian.

We first told you about this historic teamup from DC and Dark Horse back in June, and it seemed like eons before we'd get our hands on this epic union. Written by Wonder Woman's Gail Simone and featuring some savage art by Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan, Wonder Woman/Conan #1 slices into comic shops on September 20.

Here's the official solicitation synopsis:

What makes one a legend? How do legends carve their names 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? Co-published with Dark Horse Comics.

"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," said Simone. "A major draw is getting to reunite with the great Aaron Lopresti, whose very favorite things to draw are Wonder Woman and barbarians. It's blades and bracelets, wizards and wonder, and I couldn't be more delighted."
