Red Sonja and Conan Crossovers on the Way

Yes crossovers, plural. They're back together after fifteen years.

Red Sonja and Conan have had adventures together in the past. The problem is, when two properties find homes at different publishers, meeting up for battles can be a little difficult. With Red Sonja at Dynamite Entertainment and Conan at Dark Horse, fans have been asking and waiting for a crossover for fifteen years.

In 2014 that all changes.

Dynamite and Dark Horse have announced not one, but two separate crossovers. There will be two series, CONAN/RED SONJA and RED SONJA/CONAN by Dynamite and Dark Horse, respectively. The writers will be Gail Simone and Brian Wood.

Simone, current RED SONJA writer, said the following:

"It's only the crossover that readers have been begging to have for over a decade: the two greatest barbarian adventurers ever created in an epic tale of blood, lust, and vengeance. This is the kind of stuff that made me a reader in the first place, and working with Brian Wood and his amazing version of Conan? It's just a sword-and-sorcery dream come true. It's sword vs. sword, Cimmerian vs. Hyrkanian, loincloth vs. bikini, and it'll probably be the most fun you'll have reading a comic all year."

Brian Wood is currently writing CONAN and added this:

"Conan and Red Sonja together are a genre dream team, and I'm looking forward to not only working with Gail on the story, but creating a crossover story that is epic and huge as these things should be... and something that matters, that's relevant, and adds something to each character's rich history."

With the series set for 2014, we'll have to wait for more information to become available.
