    Default Which Red Sonja miniseries/one-shots take place in the Queen Sonja continuity?

    And another question: Which Red Sonja miniseries/one-shots take place in the Queen Sonja continuity (Sonja dies, is reincarnated decades later, becomes queen, etc.)? I've heard that Atlantis Rises is one but I am not sure.

    I don't really see the need for a reboot. Like Conan, Red Sonja is a character who can be launched into new adventures with no reference to previous continuity without actually losing any of it, simply because she is a wanderer. Why reboot?

    Honestly, if they've put "made into a vampire and battled Dracula" into her own book, I think that's an excellent reason to reboot.

    Yes, but the post in question doesn't say where they got that info from, and I haven't found anything supporting it, so I'm hoping someone knows, like an interview, an announcement, etc.

    This was meant to be its own thread as it's pretty thoroughly disconnected from the Simone reboot question, but it got folded into the Simone thread, so I hope someone can let me know...

    Probably make more sense to repost it as its own thread. People who have thought about that would be more likely to notice it. Just saying.

    I know, but if a mod moved it, then I don't want to annoy them. It's not my board, after all!
