Dynamite Entertainment is trying something different with Red Sonja. They’ve turned her over to Jim Zub and Jonathan Lau to create an over-sized manga-style one-shot called Red Sonja And Cub. This special edition will feature a cover by Jeffery Cruz and hit stands in April.
In Red Sonja and Cub, blood will rain down upon the snowy ground as the She-Devil With A Sword battles her way across the Asiatic lands of Khitai. In a land of complex family loyalties and death before dishonor, will sharpened steel and the muscle to wield it be enough?
“Getting the chance to write a samurai-style story of savage combat and sacrifice with Red Sonja, one of the heavyweight characters of fantasy, is a real thrill,” says Red Sonja and Cub writer Jim Zub. “I’m stoked for people to see the big action-big emotion ride Jonathan and I are putting together for this.”
Red Sonja and Cub will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February Previews catalog, slated for release on April 2nd, 2014. Red Sonja and Cub will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
