So the basic story is that these shapeshifting crowd goddesses called The Corvidae has set up a situation where Conan and Wonder Woman would fight to the death for their own amusement but it ends up not working that way.

It starts with Conan saving someone who welches on deals from getting killed with the promise of being made rich and able to have all the women he wants. The man tells him that the fight he’s betting on is guaranteed to give him the money needed to make good on that promise.

However, the plan goes awry when the fighter ends up losing to Wonder Woman (whom is enslaved at the time and doesn’t remember who she is), However Conan ends up losing interest in that when he sees Wonder Woman and she reminds him of a woman from his past named “Yanna”. Both of them end up captured by the Slaver who plans to make them fight for the Corvidae’s own amusement. Of course they both escape and the time used during the escape is where the story focuses on developing the relationship between Conan and Wonder Woman that seems to have a tinge of both Warrior’s Respect and romance. The story does its best to convince you that maybe Wonder Woman is this Yanna that Conan thinks she is but as the story unfolds Diana remembers who and what she is. There is a moment in the story where the Amazons find a way to Conan’s time zone after the Corvidae show up in Themyscira and that leads to a moment where Diana is forced to leave Conan fighting a war by himself that also has the life of his childhood friend Yanna on the line. She gives him one of her bracelets and the lasso of truth to help him.

Wonder Woman feels guilty about it and just in time when Conan is attacking the Corvidae on his own Diana and the Amazons return along with the Welcher freeing the slaves to engage in all out war with the Corvidae.

The story really does a great job of balancing the Hyborian Age’s more grim aesthetic with the more hopeful vibe of Wonder Woman’s lore and for that day Conan and the townspeople were inspired by her nature.

The story strangely ends in a bittersweet fashion where Conan finds out that Yanna is now Married with Children. However him and Diana end up leaving with one kiss and an Amazon salute...atleast the main story but there’s a little tidbit at the end that harkens back to a line Yanna told Conan about the possibility of there being “Echoes in the Chasm” which seems to imply the concept of reincarnation.

There are a lot of crossovers in media that either don’t often live up to the hype at all or are good because they delivery on the sheer novelty factor of said crossover but honestly everything from the storyline, art, action and character driven approach taken to the story really makes this one of the best comic crossovers one will probably ever read. It’s not often I read a crossover (especially an inter company one) where I can say it gave me everything I wanted but I can easily say that for this.

Definitely a 9/10 from start to finish.

It really makes me excited for her upcoming Red Sonja/Conan crossover but sad we likely won’t see a follow up to this book at the same time.
Thanks for this review. I'm definitely going to check it out now.

During the recent sale at Comixology I picked up the first 5 (?) issues of the recent Defenders series and I gotta say I really like it. The art is mostly superb and the dialogue and plot is really good as well. Still not a fan of the black DD suit though but oh well.

Do you guys think that a DC/Dragonball crossover would sell well?

Imagine Goku and Superman having to team up to fight Darkseid that has the Anti-Life Equation. Hell Goku would probably give it to him so he can fight him at full power lol

I recommend reading Soule's run after you're done with Snyder's. I liked Soule's run better.

Safe to say that Jim Lee would be a good artist for a DC/Dragonball crossover right?

Sure, it'd just take 3 years to get 6 issues in.

Finally bought the Jeff Lemire Green Arrow deluxe edition. I already own the single issues but wanted a longer lasting collection. The collection itself is very well made. I highly recommended the book if you haven’t read the book yet. The story and Especially the art by Andrea Sorrentino and Colors by Marcelo Maiolo are outstanding. So do yourself a favor and buy the deluxe edition.

That art was beautiful. The writing was excellent, but some storylines dragged a bit. Green Arrow for some reason sometimes feels like it over does the conspiracy stories. That’s common among most of his writers. That’s great I’m small doses but they need variation and conclusion to those stories.

So thats really a thing then? I thought i was just seeing things.

But yeah, the art is something really beautiful and the characters feel good with a spot on writing.
I have it lying around somewhere and now i really need to re-read it.
