Dynamite is launching a new Kickstarter campaign for a new Red Sonja statue based on the artwork of Amanda Conner from the cover art for Red Sonja: Black Tower #1. The full-color statue is sculpted by Jason Smith, measures approximately 7.5″ high, and stands on a 3″ wide base. Further options available include the noir “black and white” edition, and the beautiful “bronze” edition (stretch-goal edition). The two-week kickstarter will wrap up before the end of the month and the statues are expected to ship in the middle of December 2017, in time for Christmas.
Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is a fictional character, a high-fantasy sword and sorcery heroine created by Robert E. Howard, and adapted for comics by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She first appeared in Conan the Barbarian #23 (Marvel Comics). She has spent the last decade as one of the top selling title for Dynamite Entertainment.
Conner began her professional career as an illustrator for New York City ad agencies, but her passion for comic books and cartooning soon led her to the comics world where she initially found work at companies such as Archie, Marvel, and Event Comics. Since then, she has become one of DC Entertainment’s highest profile creators, and has worked on many popular projects including Harley Quinn, Vampirella, Painkiller Jane, as well as creator owned projects Gatecrasher and The Pro. Conner served as cover artist for Gail Simone’s Red Sonja #1 in 2013, as well as the Red Sonja The Black Tower run in 2014.
While these statues are already in production, by having them offered as a kickstarter, those who back the project can earn some interesting rewards to go with it. Those include:
- Digital and print copies of Red Sonja The Black Tower GN,
