Dynamite Entertainment announced a new Red Sonja series is on its way with Jim Zub leading the way on Unbreakable Red Sonja.
“I grew up on a steady supply of sword & sorcery novels, comics, and games in my youth and they indelibly imprinted on my mind in ways that inform all my work,” said writer Jim Zub in a press release from Dynamite Entertainment. “I’m absolutely pumped to bring that to Red Sonja. This time I have more room to explore what drives her and the depths she’ll go to overcome threats wildly stacked against her.”
In this new adventure, Red Sonja carries a hazy memory lurking just out of reach. As she seeks to solve the mystery of this strange vision, it will unlock a journey of forbidden magic and searing steel. Moments from Sonja’s past, present, and even the future collide in a quest unlike any other our scarlet-haired hero has faced before! It’s a Sonja story different from any fans have seen before, but at its core is classic sword and sorcery fare.
Sonja is a self-made woman and warrior, from her earliest days to her legend built as Queen. In her harsh era and environment, death can come at any turn, necessitating an uncompromising and unforgiving approach to battle and life. This is where the Unbreakable title comes to the forefront. The creative team is determined to put her through one of her most brutal stories yet to truly earn that “Unbreakable” adjective.
Giovanni Valletta joins Zub for the series.
Unbreakable Red Sonja #1 is scheduled to arrive in October 2022.
