Dynamite Entertainment has announced that a new Red Sonja series will be coming this September, Red Sonja: The Black Tower. The series is described as “a decades spanning, mind-blowing tale that could spell the end for our favorite She-Devil with a Sword.”
Frank Tieri will be writing the series with Cezar Razek handling interior art and Amanda Conner drawing the covers. Tieri had this to say of the series:
“Simply put, THE BLACK TOWER is an old fashioned mystery-and as we all know, everybody loves a mystery. In fact, I’d say at times, this story is more in line with a Stephen King story than your typical Sonja tale. The Tower just appears out of nowhere one day-nobody knows why, nobody knows how. People are scared, they’re confused-and they start turning on each other. That’s when Red Sonja enters the picture. And what she finds is mystery that will span decades, which will pit people against each other, that will cost many lives… including her own. Now, I think that’s a story fans will want to see how it turns out, don’t you? I like that she’s this total bad ass-that she’s the WOLVERINE of her world, that she’s The Man With No Name– but she’s also a woman. Because you don’t often see that. You don’t often see it being a woman that walks into a bar and everybody tenses up, everybody pees their pants. And in Sonja’s case, if you underestimate her, if you just dismiss her as ‘just a woman’-she’s going to make you pay for it. And then some.”
You can find Red Sonja: The Black Tower #1 in stores and digitally this September.
