    This just in from Dynamite...


    Frank Cho Leads The Pack in August!

    May 30, 2006, Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information concerning their newest RED SONJA mini-series event!

    Featuring covers and a story co-written by Frank (Shanna, Spider-Man, Avengers) Cho, joined by co-writer Doug (The ‘Nam) Murray and newest Dynamite artistic sensation Homs, the SAVAGE RED SONJA battles THE QUEEN OF THE FROZEN WASTES!

    “Of course, Frank’s been at the top of our “want” list from the get-go, but he’s been so busy with Marvel and his own Liberty Meadows we never thought we could get him, so we never asked,” explained DYNAMITE SPOKESPERSON J. ALLEN. “Turns out, we didn’t have to, he asked us! And he brought Doug Murray with him – who’s ready to burst back into the comics scene and this is just the mini to do it! We added Homs to the mix and we’ve got the SAVAGE RED SONJA mini-series event!”

    DYNAMITE will be adding their trademark multiple incentive covers to the mix as well, though with a slight twist, “We’re going with three cover artists across the series, each one doing one cover on each issue. Cho’s on board and Homs will be providing covers, but we’ve also got the Red Sonja debut of Mark Texeira – fully painted pieces, and they are BEAUTIFUL!”

    It all begins in JULY, reserve your copy today!
