Red Sonja and Bettie Page Celebrate Halloween with a Pair of One-Shots

Savage Tales: A Red Sonja Halloween Special

Dynamite is delivering a fright-filled pair of Halloween themed special one-shots starring Red Sonja and Bettie Page!

In Savage Tales: A Red Sonja Halloween Special, writer Mark Russell brings in artist Jacob Edgar to tell an extra-length spooky story. Dearbhla Kelly and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou also jump over from the regular series for this essential tale for fans of the She-Devil with a Sword. All underneath a striking cover from Erica D’Urso, drawing inspiration from the original Savage Tales #1.

This one-shot perfectly complements issue 9 of the ongoing series, out the same month. While that issue has Sonja returning to the Sorcerers of Wigur-Nomadene, Savage Tales flashes back to their first encounter. At this point, Sonja is not yet a legend, but a brute full of anger and ambition. Savage. Everyone’s favorite fiery heroine tries to convince the sorcerers to bring her family and friends back to life. 

In the Bettie Page Halloween Special, a mysterious force is hunting students at an exclusive Upstate New York college. Just the case for Bettie to investigate, and she’ll be enrolling in Werewolf 101. The supermodel/superspy’s chronicler David Avallone contributes this full-length story with artist Roy Allan Martinez. Bettie is used to men being beasts, so this issue turns that metaphor up to 11. In a bonus short story, writer Erica Schultz and artist Fernando Ruiz spin a yarn of aliens, classic cars and a sci-fi double feature at the drive-in theater. 

The issue features a cover by fan-favorite Bettie artist John Royle and another from Reilly Brown. Last year’s Halloween Special was a bucket of fun and kicked off the whole next era of Bettie’s adventures, so fans shouldn’t dare miss this one!

Savage Tales: A Red Sonja Halloween Special and the Bettie Page Halloween Special are slated for release in October 2019.
