I know I have mentioned this in the past. One series that I feel is often overlooked and underrated is Dynamite Entertainment's Queen Sonja, a series that branches off of the popular Red Sonja series. Earlier today, Dynamite announced the release of the eighth issue in the comic book series.
Written by ARVID NELSON
Art by JACKSON HERBERT
32 pages $2.99
The idea that Sonja may actually "find love" seems, at least to me, so out of character for the commanding female. I mean, if Conan could not handle her, then whom? I feel like she would be pretty tough to date. One interesting thing I noticed was the writer for that particular issue, Arvid Nelson. For those of you unfamiliar with Nelson's work, he was previously the writer for KULL, a six issue mini-series published by Dark Horse which dealt with many of the similar concepts and plot devices that can be found in Sonja's books. You can check out the preview for the series which was released about two years ago on the Dark Horse website. Personally, I thought the art and the writing was beautiful. I'm looking forward to picking up this issue and seeing what kind of guy it takes to handle a girl like Red Sonja, what about you?
In Queen Sonja #8, the all-new adventures of fantasy’s most fantastic heroine continue from Dynamite, writer Arvid ( Kull) Nelson and Jackson Herbert! Has the throne and her discovered royalty finally allowed Sonja to at last find love? Find out in this issue!
