Ack ack! Ack ack ack ack ack! ACK ACK!
All of Kyrkania is under attack from martian from Mars! What will Red Sonja do? I suspect chop a lot of martians in half, but let’s see what the solicitation information from Dynamite Entertainment has to say.
John Layman (Chew, Detective Comics) and artist Fran Strukan (The Shape of Elvira) will chronicle the untold tale of when the dastardly Martians invaded Hyrkania during the Hyborian Age. Joined by colorist Valentina Briški and letterer maestro Taylor Esposito, the team will unravel this forgotten piece of history. How do the steel and savagery of Red Sonja stand up against the advanced weaponry and science of the big-brained baddies? Only one way to find out, by reading the ACK-ing book!
This is definitely a new twist on the Mars Attacks franchise.
“This is a book I actively pushed Dynamite to do, and I bugged them and bugged them until they finally approved it because I wouldn’t go away,” said John Layman. “I’m a HUGE fan of both properties, and the idea of mixing violent barbarian sword & sorcery with ultra-violent over-the-top retro sci-fi is simply irresistible to me.”
Oh, really? Well, we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled (get it?) when Mars Attacks Red Sonja #1 arrives in August 2020.
