More Down-to-Earth Stories for Red Sonja in 2010

Posted in Comics on July 30, 2010 by nemedian bard

Dynamite Entertainment discussed upcoming plans for Red Sonja at their Comic-Con International panel. According to Comic Book Resources the “Red Sonja” title will scale back from the heavily magic-influenced events in past issues and focus on more down-to-earth stories. “Queen Sonja” will focus on the human aspect of things. Deciding she’s tired of being on the defensive Sonja will start conquering other nations.

Dynamite also talked about a new “Wrath of the Gods” series by Luke Lieberman releasing later this year and hinting it will not be the only title coming back.
