Jim Zub to Write Manga-Style One-Shot: RED SONJA AND CUB

This April, Dynamite launches a manga inspired one-shot.

In April, Dynamite is trying something a bit different but something very familiar at the same time. They will be launching a one-shot Red Sonja titled RED SONJA AND CUB, which will be done as a manga-style book. It will be written by Jim Zub (PATHFINDER) and drawn by Jonathan Lau (GREEN HORNET). Check out some of the images and solicit from this new book.

While Gail Simone's Red Sonja series is scorching hot, Dynamite is presenting a Red Sonja one-shot done as a manga style book! In April of 2014, Red Sonja and Cub will be offered, written by Jim Zub (Pathfinder), drawn by Jonathan Lau, with a cover by Jeffery "Chamba" Cruz! This oversized issue will be available in April from Dynamite Entertainment in comic stores and digital.

In Red Sonja and Cub, blood will rain down upon the snowy ground as the She-Devil With A Sword battles her way across the Asiatic lands of Khitai. In a land of complex family loyalties and death before dishonor, will sharpened steel and the muscle to wield it be enough?

"Getting the chance to write a samurai-style story of savage combat and sacrifice with Red Sonja, one of the heavyweight characters of fantasy, is a real thrill," says Red Sonja and Cub writer [Jim Zub]. "I'm stoked for people to see the big action-big emotion ride Jonathan and I are putting together for this."

RED SONJA & CUB be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' February Previews catalog and slated for release on April 2nd, 2014.

Been enjoying the current ongoing, and Legends isn't bad either, will be getting this as well.

Very nice! A samurai-style story with my favorite She-Devil. Definitely picking this up!

With little background knowledge of the character, I started reading Red Sonja with Gail Simone's run. I've just finished Dynamite's first omnibus, and I am so impressed. I can't believe I wasn't into Red Sonja before! She's become one of my favorite characters, and I think I'm a loyalist at this point. Finally, someone to fill the void that appeared when Xena: Warrior Princess was finished...
