red sonja spider-man.jpgDynamite Entertainment and Marvel Comics have announced one of the strangest crossovers I’ve seen since Ash made the leap to Zombieland. The next major team up will feature Spider-Man and Red Sonja, something that hasn’t happened since 1979.

The Spider-Man/Red Sonja team up will be a five issue limited series as the duo battle the devious duo of Kulan Gath and Venom. Michael Avon Oeming will write, with Mel Rubi on art with Brian Buccellato coloring. Covers will be done by *sigh* Michael Turner.

Dynamite’s Nick Barrucci stated, “With this crossover we’re touching on some of the greatest comic stories ever told, and it’s an absolute honor. Having the opportunity to team Red Sonja with one of the world’s most iconic characters, Spider-Man, is also a credit to Red Sonja’s regular creative team of Oeming, Rubi and Buccellato, who have handled the She-Devil’s sword-swinging adventures every bit as masterfully as the legendary creators before them. And of course, we’re very pleased to be working with our good friends at Marvel once more. This is the team up no one ever thought they would see again- with that in mind, we are working closely with Marvel to ensure this crossover has real meaning to the fans, as well as the continuity of both franchises.”
