Once Upon a Time… Red Sonja, Vampirella, Dejah Thoris in Fairy Tales

Once upon a time… every hero has journeys that you wouldn’t expect, in far away lands, facing fearsome monsters, being manipulated by envious queens, or stalked through the woods by hungry wolves. This August Dynamite debuts three special one-shots, as their three biggest characters are put in the shoes of classic fables.

Red Sonja stumbles upon a mysterious giant bean stalk, suddenly sprouted from the Earth via magical beans. Atop the imposing climb resides some captivating treasure – oh, and also a giant craving human flesh and bones. The She-Devil With a Sword has never turned down a battle like this before, so readers shouldn’t expect anything less than thrilling action as she overcomes her latest foe. Writer Jordan Clark spins this yarn.

Mirror, mirror, who is the fairest of them all? On the planet Barsoom, that would be the one and only Dejah Thoris. Which means the envious queen has struck the Princess of Mars out into the wilderness. Only to make countless friends and allies in her exile, unlike any she’d seen before. Her time will come to return to the queen and lay claim to her rightful throne. Ron Marz returns to the Warlord of Mars mythos following his celebrated 2014 take.

Last but certainly not least, Vampirella gets an extra accessory for her iconic costume, as she rocks a famous red hooded cape. With story by Soo Lee, Vampirella is off to deliver wine and cake to her beloved grandmother. A horrid, fanged beast stalks the woods, hunting easy prey. Little do they know their prospective victim has her very own fangs!

To depict these beloved characters in these classic fairy tale scenarios, editor Nate Cosby has called on three spectacular artists for three covers on each special issue, respectively. Soo Lee, also writing Vampirella, brings her signature style. Lesley “Leirix” Li‘s contributions will have fans dropping their jaws. And they’re rounded out with fan-favorite Sebastian Piriz.

Review: We Ride Titans #1

We Ride Titans #1

Pacific Rim seems to have launched (or been part of the wave) of the resurgence of stories featuring giant robots fighting kaiju. Many of them are just spins on the same story, giant creature attacks and a giant robot fights back. They’re entertaining in that popcorn way, not much thought, enjoy the fight. But, there’s a few that have stood out due to the fact they deliver something slightly different. We Ride Titans #1 looks like it’s going to be one of those stories that stands out if the debut issue is any indication.

Written by Tres Dean, the story revolves around the Hobbs family who pilot the mech that protects New Hyperion. The current pilot, Dej, has a drinking problem and causes a massive amount of destruction while battling the latest monster, while he’s drunk. Enter Kit, his estranged sister, who is called back into service by their parents while Dej deals with his issues. Dean delivers the usual battles but the focus on the pilots and those in charge and their dysfunction is what makes this debut issue stand out from such similar general concepts.

Screwed up pilots isn’t anything that’s new. It’s something that seems to be a regular part of the story for the latest wave. The troubled pilot who then saves the day seems to be a given. We Ride Titans #1 though, feels like it’s mostly going to focus on that family dynamic. The relationship of siblings and their parents is at the center of the story, not the threat that they face. The monster isn’t some physical thing, it’s their issues as a family. That’s different and interesting. How do you deal with your own issues while also having so many others rely on your protection? That seems to be where Dean is going with it all.

The art by Sebastian Píriz is solid. With color by Dee Cunniffe and lettering by Jim Campbell, what’s presented is very smart as far as the story that’s being told. Yes, the comic begins with a big battle, but its’ focus to start is the pilot Dej. The art focuses in on him as he struggles to fight and struggles with the messages he’s receiving from command. It’s not about the battle itself, it’s the battle Dej is having with himself. There’s an almost stripped down aspect to it that doesn’t go for flashy fighting and keeps things focused where it should, on the characters, exactly like the first issue does.

We Ride Titans #1 is a solid start to the series. It delivers something new from a genre that was getting a little played out. There’s tension and a lot of dynamics that are easy to relate to. As expected, this is a debut to make sure to grab from the shelf and absolutely check out the second issue when it arrives.

Hajime Sorayama and Heavy Metal Magazine Team for “Sexy Robot Covers”

Heavy Metal Entertainment has announced that legendary Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama, famous for his Sexy Robot paintings and statues, will be contributing artwork for three new covers for Heavy Metal Magazine #312.

The three different covers showcase sci-fi inspired robots in different sensual poses; all three editions of the magazine are available to purchase starting December 8th, 2021, when the issue became available in stores and online.

Sorayama previously illustrated the iconic front cover of Heavy Metal Magazine’s November 1980 issue, featuring a stunning female android draped in a red sheet, as well as the back cover for the August 1981 issue. Heavy Metal is happy to reunite once again with Sorayama for this spectacular Sexy Robot artwork.

The “Sexy Robot” series, Sorayama’s signature body of work, started in 1978 and continues into the modern day, serving to establish his world-wide reputation. The Sexy Robot artwork he created for Aerosmith’s 2001 album Just Push Play earned him global renown, and in 2018, Sorayama collaborated with fashion house Dior for its 2019 pre-fall collection in Tokyo, presenting a 39-foot-high gigantic Sexy Robot statue for the show that gained vast attention from all over the world.

Issue #312 of Heavy Metal Magazine not only feature Sorayama’s artwork, but also includes the first two parts of Avenging Demon Princes, a newly translated French space opera, adapted by Jo Morvan from the original novel by Jack Vance, with incredible art by Paolo Traisci. Heavy Metal Magazine #312 also presents the return of The Adventures of Adrienne James, Matthew Medney and Bruce Edwards’ “female Indiana Jones in space” series, with all-star illustrator Santa Fung coming aboard as the artist for the series.

All-new chapters of Ron Marz’s Swamp God series, Steve Orlando’s Starward series, and Ryan K Lindsay and Sebastián Píriz’s Black Beacon series are also featured in the issue.
