“Red Sonja is one of the original female ass-kickers in comics, of COURSE I would want to write her,” says Simone in a statement. “Any reader who likes sex, blood, swordplay, sassiness, red hair, adventure, and monsters getting stabbed in the face should get this book.”
“I had this idea to ask the top female artists in the industry to do the covers and Dynamite ran with it beyond my dreams, says Simone. “Not only did all the artists we asked immediately agree, they all confessed their secret love for Sonja. They adore her! Lots of the artists submitted multiple sketches because they couldn’t stop, and many top names submitted sketches without even being asked, they love Sonja so much, and are dying to see this project.”
As a long time Sonja fan myself, I approve and can’t wait to read Gail’s take on the book. The first issue comes out in June.
