First Look: Red Sonja Comics In November

Who's the toughest female character that wears chain mail and carries a sword? It's probably safe to say it's Red Sonja
 
Red Sonja first appeared in 1973 and she's still going strong. Her flagship title at Dynamite Entertainment will reach issue #55 this November. Dynamite has given us information on what Red Sonja will be dealing with after her current dealings (click images to enlarge).   


RED SONJA #55
32 pages FC  •  $3.99  •  Teen +
Written by ERIC TRAUTMANN  •  Art by STEPHEN SADOWSKI
Covers by PATRICK BERKENKOTTER (50%), MICHAEL AVON OEMING (25%) & WALTER GEOVANI (25%)
What do you do when the war is over and your comrades are dead on the battlefield? You find the nearest tavern and drink a toast:  "To Absent Friends." Red Sonja considers her next move after the deadly conflicts in Shem (issues #51-#54), but where there's a tavern, there's some drunken fool who starts a fight… 


But that's not all Red Sonja fans have to look forward to. 
  == TEASER == 

QUEEN SONJA #14
32 pages FC  •  $3.99  •  Teen +
Written by LUKE LIEBERMAN  •  Art by MEL RUBI
Covers by FABIANo NEVES (50%) & CARLOS RAFAEl (50%)
From wild child, to thief, to warrior - the metamorphosis is nearly complete as Sonja and Kain confront Lord Fellon in his lair.  A suicide mission, but they must atone for their sins.  And what of Jubal, their master, where do his loyalties lay?  A thrilling episode that strikes at the heart of Red Sonja's psyche!


           If you're looking for even more Red Sonja action this November, there will also be a one-shot, over-sized issue you can pick up as well. 
 

RED SONJA: DELUGE ONE-SHOT
48 pages FC  •  $4.99 •  Teen +
Written by DAN BRERETON  •  Art by CHRIS BOLSON
Covers by DAN BRERETON (main) & CHRIS BOLSON (1-in-4)
“Virgin Art” retailer incentive cover by DAN BRERETON
A violent storm floods the lonely countryside, and Sonja takes shelter in a cramped Inn. After a deadly altercation with the town bully, Sonja vows to keep out of the locals' power struggles. But when the dead man's brothers appear, all Hell breaks loose indoors as Mother Nature rages around them, threatening to awaken a long buried horror in the earth. 
 
Also featuring reprints of classic Sonja material!


    
Looks like it'll be good times for Red Sonja fans this November.

Well, I'm still bitter about Paradox shelving the plans for a new Red Sonja film, so I guess I'll just have to grab all of these titles in the meantime.

Queen Sonja is one the best books out.

Do Red Sonja and Queen Sonja share the same continuity?

None of those covers look remotely appealing... shame

Maybe but its Dynamite, so there will be like 5 billion covers to choice from when the issues finally come out :)
 
I am debating to get back on the Red Sonja band wagon. I thoroughly enjoyed everything I was reading before, but I've been out of the title for so long I don't know if I can catch up. I would really hate to pick it up and then be disappointed because I missed something. Gonna have to start picking up the trades.

That is a sweet image, although those boots would really slow her down something awful. I know there is another company with Conan already, but boy do I wish Dynamite had him too. Then we can get more Sonja, Conan, Thulsa action.

I'm really not feeling any of those covers-- especially compared to many of the past Red Sonja covers I've seen. When it comes to the character, I don't know why, but I just can't get into her series. I want to even, but I picked up the first trade and it just left me bored. :(

that's what always confuses me, I thought Queen Sonja was a sequel to Red Sonja but then they resurrected the Red Sonja series so I'm a little lost here

I pretty much thought the same thing. I knew she became a queen and I know I see she has two titles.

no, no, not a comic titled King Conan but just that in his timeline he has been Conan and King Conan (such as in Weight of the Crown he was a King)
