Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is getting a new prestige series by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. Beginning in May 2021, Invincible Red Sonja will set her on a journey with pirates, mermaids, princesses, political intrigue, and more.
“I have loved Red Sonja since I was about 12 years old,” Conner said. “I wanted to grow up to be her at one point, but it’s just not the Hyborian Age anymore. Which I guess is a good thing.”
“Red Sonja is one of my favorite sword and sorcery characters ever since I bought her first appearance from the candy store,” Palmiotti said.
The husband and wife team have successfully brought their signature brand of humor, wit, and action to characters like Power Girl, Jonah Hex, and Watchmen, among others. Their run on Harley Quinn brought the character to new heights of popularity and was used as inspiration in film and the HBO Max animated series.
Artist Moritat is teaming with Conner and Palmiotti again for the interior art, following his collaboration with Palmiotti on All-Star Western.
Conner will provide the covers, along with cover artists like Joseph Michael Linsner, Carla Cohen, the Dynamite debut of Celina, and a limited edition “outrage” variant by Frank Cho.
“Amanda and Jimmy have built up an incredible fanbase and are two of the bestselling creators in the industry. They took Harley Quinn to new levels and helped the title become a juggernaut at DC,” Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci said. “They also happen to be two of the nicest, most talented and hardest working people in the business as well. We’ve talked about finding the right project together for the last two years, their schedule opened up, and it is with one of our signature characters. I’m so happy that they are tackling Red Sonja and that they have such a passion for the character.”
