Red Sonja #50 Hits Comic Stores in June!

The Red Sonja monthly returns with a milestone #50 issue from Dynamite!

April 7, 2010, Runnemede, NJ – Because
YOU demanded it…. this June, Dynamite Entertainment’s original
She-Devil with a Sword returns in the milestone anniversary issue, Red
Sonja #50! 

After the Red Sonja’s epic battle with Kulan Gath and death,
Dynamite made the move to the Queen Sonja series, leaving fans
without the much anticipated #50 anniversary issue! But wait no more! In
this amazing time and tradition of other marvelous milestones (such as
Marvel’s Thor #600 and Amazing Spider-Man #600), the
all-new Red Sonja #50 will feature 100 pages of story and art, including
new stories from Arvid Nelson, Kevin McCarthy, Raven Gregory, as well
as reprints of classic stories by Roy Thomas!  This incredible comic book will
be available with four awe-inspiring covers and a forward by Dynamite’s
original Red Sonja scribe, Mike Carey!  Be sure to reserve your copy of
Red Sonja #50 before it’s too late! 

The action and adventure
of Red Sonja #50 will be told old school "Hyboria-style", and for more
info, we thought we would let the author’s talk about their stories:

"In her new incarnation, She’s put through her
paces by the likes of Michael
Avon Oeming and Brian
Reed, not to mention Rascally Roy Thomas himself.  I was part of
the equation too, for a little while, and it was a blast, even though I
was basically playing Stanley to Mike Oeming’s Livingstone.  Vividly
imagined by Mel Rubi and Walter Geovani and Pablo Marcos (and don’t get me started on
the cover artists), Sonja is as compelling a heroine as ever – and she’s
never looked better."  — Mike Carey, writer of X-MenRed
Sonja series debut, Red Sonja #50 foreword

"In my story,
Sonja finds herself leading a wealthy warlord on a hunt for a legendary
mountain beast, the cloud tiger," says writer Arvid Nelson.  "But she’s
got a secret the whole time. The story is part history, and part
mystery!" Legacy and writer
of Dynamite’s (2005)

stand-alone epic which finds the She-Devil trapped in a violent Viking
port city cursed by a perpetual Winter," states writer Kevin McCarthy.
 "Unable to escape by sea or land, Red Sonja uses her wits and her sword
to slash a bloody path through legends and lies to discover the tragic
truth behind a tormented town, and a giant monster’s curse that, much
like our red-haired heroine, cuts both ways.  This story was a thrill
for me to write, and in case I never got another chance, I put
everything I’ve ever wanted to see the She-Devil do into my little Sonja
saga.  So it’s got a brutal bar fight, an old woman whose warnings of
danger go unheeded, a malicious magic curse, blood on the snow, tragic
Viking heroes, and a freakin’ FROST GIANT.  An earlier draft featured
cameos by the Green Hornet,
Robocop, and President Barack Obama, but Nick Barrucci nixed that
because Red Sonja #50 had already exceeded critical levels of
awesomeness! Maybe next time . . ."

"I had a fantastic time
working on this story with Raven Gregory," adds artist Joyce Chin.  "It
was a blast to meld together the Red Riding Hood myth, werewolf legends, and
Red Sonja, such an iconic hero, into such a fast paced action packed
