The penultimate chapter in Mark Russell’s first year of Red Sonja. Dragan The Magnificent’s complete victory is assured, save for one She-Devil, incapable of dying, unwilling to cede control of a bridge…
Starting in February, Dynamite has announced the Eisner-nominated Mark Russell is kicking off his second full year on the She-Devil with a Sword in the flagship Red Sonja, joined once more by the masterful Bob Q and the return of Jae Lee to Dynamite!
Following 12 issues and two tie-in one-shots, Red Sonja #13 starts with Sonja the Red in a an unfamiliar position. In the beginning of this epic, she was crowned Queen of Hyrkania, pitting her in battle against Dragan the Magnificent. As the two leaders pushed and pulled on the map, one must come out victorious. This glory is short-lived, as now in a time of relative peace and still on the throne of her conquered kingdom, Sonja must deal with the impossible part… ruling. With no food, infrastructure or plan, she must make some extremely difficult choices, compromises and alliances, lest her reign come to an anticlimactic end.
The absolute cherry on top is superstar Jae Lee returning to Dynamite to lead the legion of talented cover artists attached to this series. He joins the likes of Amanda Conner, Joseph Michael Linsner, Bob Q himself and others.

The war is being lost. Dragan The Magnificent has taken Hyrkania.

The ongoing epic continues by MARK RUSSELL (Riddler: Year Of The Villain, Sinestro: Year Of The Villain) and MIRKO COLAK (Conan).

War wages on. Sonja The Red and her Hyrkanian army travel to the mysterious Sorcerers of Wigur-Nomadene, in the hope that they will intervene on her behalf. But elsewhere… treason in Sonja’s War Council…
Dejah Thoris is back in a brand new ongoing series by sci-fi superstar Dan Abnett, launching this December!
Writer Dan Abnett and his fellow creators are heading to Barsoom to chronicle the latest tales of Dejah. His co-pilot for this mission is artist Vasco Georgiev. The crew is rounded out by colorist Dearbhla Kelly and letterer Simon Bowland. Barsoom has always been a dying world, teetering on disaster, but it may be closer to death these days. Dejah Thoris has been many things in life; a wife, a mother, royalty and an adventurer. Now her role as a scientist must take center stage, as she attempts to investigate why her homeworld is freezing. Other skills come into play when it’s discovered that political factions may be hiding the secrets of this global catastrophe. Glittering palace intrigue and visceral adventure abound in this new series, as Dejah joins her fellow Women of Dynamite “trinity” of Vampirella and Red Sonja.
Besides her kickass abilities, acute intelligence, leadership abilities and charm, Dejah Thoris is of course renowned for her beauty. Dynamite has assembled a team of four cover artists for this first issue that are upheld by fans as masters of beautiful heroines. Painter Lucio Parrillo is a natural choice, with his decade-long attachment to the franchise, having drawn countless covers for Dynamite’s first foray into Barsoom. On the other hand, Joseph Michael Linsner has tragically only drawn one Dejah cover before, so Dynamite is correcting this egregious wrong. Even worse than that, Billy Tucci has plenty of experience drawing powerful women, but has never drawn the Princess of Mars. Completing the set is a breathtaking wraparound cover by the one and only Adam Hughes! Dynamite will also be offering an extremely limited black-bagged risqué version for those who want to appreciate Dejah’s full beauty in a manner more in line with Burroughs’s original vision. Cosplayer Mai (@maidenhellxo) returns to Dejah with another cover and the first cosplay cover on a solo Dejah Thoris series!

Dynamite has announced a strengthened licensing deal with creator Joseph Michael Linsner to help celebrate his iconic indie creation Dawn’s 30th anniversary!
This bolsters the already strong relationship that Dynamite and Linsner have shared for years. Including the existing Dawn statue, which Linsner’s dedicated fans showed out in droves to support. Additionally available this fall in time for the holidays are collections of Linsner’s Dynamite published series, collectible promo trading cards and a premium quality giclée print.
Linsner continues to be one of Dynamite’s most treasured and fan-favorite cover artists, with ongoing contributions to the Red Sonja flagship series as well as other recent covers for Elvira: Mistress of the Dark and Bettie Page. 2014 saw the release of the smash-hit crossover series Dawn/Vampirella, written and drawn by Linsner. The paperback edition of that collection will hit store shelves this November. Together with his writing partner and Vampirella super fan, Kristina Deak-Linsner, he created the critically acclaimed Vampirella: Roses for the Dead limited series which brought the Daughter of Drakulon’s cousin Evily the witch back to prominence. The Roses for the Dead hardcover collection released this August.
Linsner created Dawn, the sensual goddess of birth and rebirth, in 1989 for the indie sensation anthology Cry for Dawn. Her indelible design instantly captivated fans thanks to Linsner’s talents. As of today, Dawn has starred in half a dozen series and other appearances, helped by one of the most passionate fanbases in independent comics.
Dynamite and Linsner are teaming up for a set of collectible promo trading cards celebrating the legacy of Dawn through these three decades. This limited edition set is also available signed by Linsner himself. And there may be more Dawn trading card news down the line…
Two variations on the hit Dawn statue are out soon! A special black and white artist proof edition of the Dawn statue is slated for release in October. While an artist proof edition of the costume variant statue is out in November. Only around 50 units are being produced of these rare collector’s items.
For the Joseph Michael Linsner super fans, Dynamite is producing a giclée of his iconic Dawn/Vampirella #1 cover. Giclée prints are highest-end art reproductions that capture every detail of the original work as humanly, mechanically or technically possible. The resulting print has no perceptible dot pattern, an endless array of richly-saturated color, and every nuance of the original image. Dynamite is offering these ultra-premium prints optionally with beautiful frames as well. There are less than a handful of these being made, so they will be among the most exclusive Dawn and Linsner collectibles out there!
Dawn’s 30th anniversary coincides with so many other exciting anniversaries in the Dynamite extended family. Including the 15th anniversary of Dynamite’s publishing efforts, Vampirella’s 50th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of Chaos! Comics (Evil Ernie, Chastity, Purgatori). Stay tuned to Dynamite for more news on Dawn.
