Dynamite’s Solicitations for March 2011

Posted in Comics, Solicitations on December 27, 2010 by nemedian bard

Dynamite Entertainment posted their solicitations for March 2011. There are three Red Sonja items:

Red Sonja #59
Red Sonja #59 Fabiano Neves cover
Written by Eric Trautmann, art by Walter Geovani, covers by Fabiano Neves and Walter Geovani.

Trapped between rival factions eager to seize the throne of Koth, Sonja discovers that there’s more than shifting allegiances and court intrigues at work. Ancient alchemy and forgotten sciences may be more powerful than even Red Sonja’s blades.

Queen Sonja #18
Queen Sonja #18 Carlos Rafael cover
Written by Arvid Nelson, art by Chris Bolson, covers by Fabiano Neves and Carlos Rafael.

Sonja’s taken enough poison to kill a wooly Rhinoceros. But she’s no wooly Rhino, she’s Sonja! She awakens from her poison-induced coma into a very new reality: Thulsa Doom has destroyed her capital, and with the help of his evil god, Set, he is rounding up Sonja’s subjects, for an unknown but surely extremely unpleasant purpose. Thulsa hires the very mercenary band whom Sonja fielded against the Emorans to hunt the refugee Queen down. Not all of the mercenaries are feeling good about their new assignment, but don’t they have much say in the matter — Thulsa will kill them if they don’t succeed!

Red Sonja: Revenge of the Gods #2
Red Sonja: Revenge of the Gods #2
Written by Luke Lieberman, art by Daniel Sampere, covers by Lucio Parrillo.

Loki just loves it when a plan comes together, this usually means bad news for, well, everyone else. Red Sonja struggles to defend her friend’s kingdom from destruction and stop Loki from unleashing an even greater danger on the Hyborian world.
