During her time as writer on the main Wonder Woman book, Gail Simone expressed her fondness for the sword and sorcery genre. It even inspired a story during her run, featuring Diana being transported back in time and wielding a sword a la Red Sonja. And in fact, Simone would later go on to write for the Red Sonja series over at Dynamite Entertainment.

So, when DC announced a special mini-series crossover with Dark Horse Comics, featuring a Wonder Woman and Conan team up, it should not have come as a surprise that Simone was the creative mind behind it. She even brought along the same artist she had worked with on the Wonder Woman book during her stint, Aaron Lopresti, whose artistic style certainly lent itself to these sword and sorcery type adventures.
