This coming February two of comics' most hard-hitting ladies are coming together in a cross-over that will be, according to the series' writer Doug Wagner, "NOT your typical crossover." Top Cow's Witchblade and Dynamite Entertainment's Red Sonja will be joining forces in an all new adventure to battle a "cannibalistic monstrosity into the heart of a dead, black mountain" while Sara Pezzini, wielder of the Witchblade embarks on an investigation into the death of a Catholic Priest. So, where will these two ladies cross paths?

Most cross-over stories involve some sort of sci-fi element that explains how the two universes meet up, yet according to Wagner, readers won't be seeing the two universes merge through "time traveling...soul swapping [or] messages in a bottle."

The first issue won't have the two heroes fighting against each other until they figure out who the real villain is. If that's what you're here for, you've come to the wrong place. WitchBlade/Red Sonja #1 is the beginning of a grisly trial for both characters. Red Sonja and Sara Pezzini are about to plummet into despair and hopelessness, both physically and emotionally. Their beliefs and courage will be tested, and it will take more than just either heroine brandishing their fabled weapons to overcome this threat. Humanity as they know it is at risk. And if one fails, they both fail."

Sound Interesting? A little bit different than the cross over stories we're used to? It might be interesting to see just how these two ladies' paths cross, and under what circumstances. What do you think of the Witchblade/Red Sonja cross-over? Would you consider picking up WITCHBLADE/RED SONJA #1 February 2012?

I'll pick it up. It has the potential to be awesome. I wonder who the artist will be.

"this won't be your ordinary cross over."

Apparently, this will be more like your usual pinup swimsuit special.

Very cool premise, I may have to check this one out. Man Dynamite has really been putting out a ton of top notch stuff lately. I've loved all the Kirby Genesis stuff, and will be checking out this crossover as well as the Vampirella & Dracula story.

I like the idea, not a fan of those stereotypical crossovers really so if this is breaking away from that, I'm up for it

Glad to see this, about time Red S took center stage

Neat idea, just the cover art feels "meh". I hope there are alternates.. just not feeling too positive about the art. (if this is it) Plus its a rare crossover, even between these two characters.
