In case you’ve been vacationing in majestic Hyrkania and missed the news, Dynamite Entertainment announced a new ongoing Red Sonja series to be written by Gail Simone (Batgirl, Birds of Prey).

“It’s a funny thing. I can’t stop writing Sonja. I finish an issue, I want to go right on telling the story so I immediately start the next. I finish another title, I can’t wait to write a few Sonja pages. I’ve gotten up early and gone to bed late, I’ve gotten up in the middle of the night to write her, just for the sheer fun of it. Sonja makes me happy.”
– Gail Simone
