Red Sonja Against the Hordes of Hell in Age of Chaos this January

Chaos! comes to Hyboria in December’s Red Sonja: Age of Chaos from Dynamite!

This fight and fright-filled new limited series is written by returning Sonja scribe Erik Burnham. Joining him on art is the one and only Jonathan Lau. Burnham is bringing the present into the past, with a Chaos! invasion of the Hyborean Age. A cosmic level spat between Mistress Hel and Lady Demon leaves Sonja and characters like Chastity, Evil Ernie, Purgatori, Jade and more stuck in the middle. Alliances will be made to combat this mayhem and great evil, but Sonja may have to resort to something she never would have guessed – enlisting the help of her sworn enemy, Kulan Gath!

New readers can come into this series with no prior knowledge. However, fans may recall Erik contributed to the previous ongoing Red Sonja volume helmed by Amy Chu and Carlos Gomez. The series’ central arc, titled Worlds Away, threw the She-Devil with a Sword into the far-flung future of modern-day New York City. That fish out of water premise allowed for fan-favorite scenes of levity and new challenges for the heroine. This time around, Sonja has the home advantage. Burnham has teased that there may be callbacks and Easter eggs in this new series for fans of that previous run.

For a series with so many fan-favorite characters, Dynamite is treating fans to a cornucopia of covers blending the sword and sorcery aesthetic of Sonja, the blood-soaked terror of Chaos! and the epic crossover aspect of the series! Leading the pack is painter and Dynamite legend Lucio Parrillo, depicting Sonja and Purgatori locked in mortal combat and drawing blood. Alan Quah captures that crossover chaos with nearly the full roll call on his cover – but there are more surprises in the series of course! Ale Garza and Cian Tormey add their special touch to covers. While the Hyrkanian Hero is represented in cosplay by Shannon Kingston, following her run on covers for Birth of the She-Devil.
