Dynamite launches another Red Sonja series from writer Mark Russell…who was deservedly nominated for an Eisner this year for best writer. He’s done stuff on religion and Hanna-Barbera stuff for DC, so…Red Sonja’s next up. Actually, the story seems pretty solid, and if the art is decent, it’ll be a strong addition to the genre.
“No man knows the place of her birth, nor where she learned to wield a sword to shame many a male. They know only that she is called The She-Devil of The Hyrkanian Steppes. That, and RED SONJA. MARK RUSSELL (The Flintstones) and MIRKO COLAK (Conan) bring a savage tale of metal and blood. A world conqueror possesses a massive army and a fatal prophecy. A bastard sorceress craves revenge. And a fearsome red-haired warrior is made wartime ruler of a homeland set for decimation.”
