Red Sonja and Thor Preview?

Posted in Art, Comics on April 30, 2009 by nemedian bard

I made a post yesterday mentioning a Sonja/Thor miniseries coming out in 2009 from Dynamite Entertainment. Well someone by the name of rafael0381 posted three penciled pages of a Red Sonja and Thor comic on photobucket, and they look like they could be actual pages from the miniseries releasing later this year. Dynamite’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Rybandt never said who would be illustrating the book but could rafael0381 be Carlos Rafael, an artist who did covers for a few issues of Red Sonja in the past? Check out the images and decide for yourself.
