Posted in Comics, Miniseries, Solicitations, Trade Paperbacks on November 26, 2012 by nemedian bard

Dynamite Entertainment posted their solicitations for February 2013. There are three Red Sonja items:

Red Sonja #77
Red Sonja #77
Written by Brandon Jerwa, art by Sergio Fernandez Davila, cover by Lucio Parrillo.

“THE CRIMSON WELL (Part 2 of 6): Sonja finds herself the unwilling traveling companion for a band of bounty hunters, and her deteriorating physical and mental state isn’t much help. Can anyone help her overcome the strange impulses that threaten to take over her very soul? And what does it have to do with the shadowy man who keeps appearing in fragments of her memories?

Red Sonja: Unchained #1
Red Sonja: Unchained #1
Written by Peter V. Brett, by Jack Jadson, cover by Mel Rubi.

Picking up where Peter V. Brett’s Red Sonja: Blue one-shot left off, with Sonja fleeing the scene of a murder after killing a young man who tried to test her vow. Bereft of her signature chain-mail and the reputation that goes with it, she must rely on her wits and her sword as she embarks on a new series of adventures. Guilt-ridden, penniless and on the run, she is unaware that the innocent blood she spilled has awakened the dark spirit of the demon whose pelt she wears.

Queen Sonja Vol. 5: Ascendancy
Queen Sonja Vol. 5: Ascendancy
Written by Luke Lieberman, art by Fritz Casas, cover by Lucio Parillo.

Ever since she took the throne of Sogoria, Sonja’s journey has been leading to something greater still. Her small kingdom threw off the shackles of an empire only to see terrorism, revolt, and finally the brutality of Thulsa Doom. Starved, shocked, and near desperation, Sonja’s people now openly revolt against her rule. She turns to the only wealthy Baron to levy taxes and feed the people, but he has a better idea — attack the empire! Open assault on the Emoran Empire is suicide, but to Sonja war is a form of art. Through the skillful use of deception, assassination, and manipulation, she plunges the fiefdoms of Emora into confusion and chaos, while feeding her tiny kingdom off Emoran crops. This is only the first act, her real designs are on the crown itself, and the reformation of the corrupt Empire, with her atop the throne as Empress Sonja! Collecting issues #21-25 of the Queen Sonja series, along with a complete cover gallery.
