THIRTY pages of story, tying directly into the aftermath of RED SONJA #6! As the battle wages in Hyrkania…CYRIL is the Crown Prince of the Zamoran Empire, and he is young but not stupid. The mysterious blind priest will unlock the secrets of The Lord Of Fools…Cyril will learn his fate, and what it will mean for the known world…
This July, Dynamite will once more reunite the acclaimed creative team of Mark Russell and Bob Q for the special one-shot Red Sonja: Lord of Fools.
Lord of Fools features a captivating cover by Christian Ward, who has been stunning with his covers on the ongoing series. Spinning directly out of June’s Red Sonja #6, the oversized issue includes two special, can’t-miss stories.
First, in the eponymous tale, Mark Russell and his The Lone Rangercollaborator Bob Q execute a full length story further developing the swords and sorcery political intrigue that has fans savoring the series. While Dragan the Magnificent is busy warring with Sonja the Red, his son Cyril is back at the capital palace of the Zamoran Empire. The high priest Oracon regales him with the philosophy of the Lord of Fools, and this may yet reveal a deep secret that could unravel Dragan’s entire house of cards.
In a second short tale, Russell joins artist Katie O’Meara to tell the lore building story of Cerkus, Sonja the Red’s tongue of fire. Both stories are complemented by the unparalleled talent of series regular colorist Dearbhla Kelly and letterer Hassan Ostmane-Elhaou.
Following Lord of Fools, Bob Q will take take over as the primary artist on Red Sonja from Mirko Colak for issues 7-9, then for Colak to return for issue 10. With the seeds planted in Lord of Fools and perhaps even some hints in his prior flashback scenes, fans will not want to miss Bob Q’s upcoming arc on the series.
