Dynamite Entertainment has announced Bob Q and Mark Russell are teaming once again for a special sequence featuring the heroine in two upcoming issues.
Bob, Q, shares, “I’m incredibly excited to team up with Mark again on Sonja. I’ve loved sword and sorcery tales since I was a kid, so this is a dream come true. Alongside Mark’s deep appreciation and knowledge of history, I’m pulling inspiration from ancient, real-world sources which will hopefully give the series a unique feel while still remaining true to its roots.”
Bob Q will join Russell (The Flintstones), artist Mirko Colak (Conan), colorist Dearbhla Kelly (The Wild Storm: Michael Cray) and letterer Hassan Ostmane-Elhaou (Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt) to illustrate special pages revealing episodes from Sonja’s adventuring past. These short flashbacks will inform her actions in the present as Queen of Hyrkania and even foreshadow coming events. Fans of their previous collaboration should be especially happy to see Bob drawing horses again! These new story pages are in addition to Bob’s existing “Seduction” variant covers on each issue depicting Red Sonja encountering classic mythical creatures and legends.
Red Sonja #3 arrives in April, with issue #4 lands at your LCS in May.
