Posted in Movies on February 28, 2011 by nemedian bard

Amber Heard had this to say about the Red Sonja role in a recent interview with Moviefone:

“I was sort of surprised to hear about it, yeah. I think (producer) Avi (Lerner) even said himself, “She doesn’t know it yet.” So I was surprised, but also it’s something I’ve been looking at for a while and kind of interested in. I’m definitely interested in being a part of it, but that’s all I can kind of comment on right now.”

Written by Eric Trautmann, art by Patrick Berkenkotter, covers by Fabiano Neves and Walter Geovani.

Khorshemish — the seat of power of the mighty nation of Koth — mourns the passing of its aged King, and Red Sonja wants nothing more than to put the kingdom behind her. Embroiled in palace intrigues, assassination and ancient magicks, it’s almost too much for a pay-soldier to take.

But now, a new ruler ascends to the throne, and his rise to power could spell war for all the Hyborian kingdoms. And in the chaos, old enemies are bent on settling bloody scores with the She-Devil With A Sword…

Extra sized anniversary issue featuring 28 pages of original story as well as reprints of Red Sonja’s early adventures!

Thulsa only needs to delay her long enough to perform the ritual that will free his evil god, Set, from his ancient prison. But Set is hiding a terrible secret from Thulsa, a secret that could mean the doom of all Hyboria. Cosmos-shattering revelations, bloody duels and a dark reckoning between Sonja and the darkest forces of the interstellar gulfs await in the final installment of the “Son of Set” story arc!
