Conan and Red Sonja have been around for 83 years (one a bit longer than the other), but when you think of one, you tend to think of another. The comic adventures of these two warriors currently takes place at different companies; Conan at Dark Horse Comics, and Red Sonja at Dynamite Entertainment. What happens when the two publishers throw their heroes together in a grand act of synergy? Let’s find out in this early review of Conan Red Sonja #1!

Press Release Dynamite Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics are proud to announce the 2014 crossover of swords-and-sorcery icons Red Sonja, She-Devil with a Sword and Conan the Barbarian, a reunion that fans have asked for since their last team-up over fifteen years ago.

Acclaimed writers Gail Simone and Brian Wood are confirmed as the writers for the epic crossovers, both firmly established as valuable contributors to the Robert E. Howard fantasy mythos.
