I'm pleased to see the oversized anthology issue, Red Sonja #1973, hitting shelves tomorrow.
It was a fun project: write a short Sonja story in the same vein as the classic Marvel run from the early 1970s. Since my 25-issue run on the title was basically a giant homage to that, it felt a bit like a homecoming (and I also got to write was is essentially a prequel to the short piece I contributed to Red Sonja #100.
I have a final chapter in mind, so if you dig it, tell Dynamite you want more.)
Hopefully folks enjoy the book; I just got my comp copies, and I have to say, it looks quite good. My story features are by Ivan Rodriguez and a really nice, subtle, stark coloring job by Marcio Menyz. They do excellent work (as evidenced by the preview images below.)
