    MAYHEW, RENAUD COVER THE PENULTIMATE EVIL

    Red Sonja #17 Hits Stores in November!


    September 19, 2006, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment released images and information today concerning RED SONJA #17 (SEP063222), the penultimate chapter to the She-Devil with a Sword’s battle against the evil of Kulan Gath.

    Scheduled to ship in November, RED SONJA #17 features covers by fan favorite artists Mike Mayhew, Marat Mychels and upcoming artist Paul Renaud, as well as series artist Mel Rubi!

    About the release, DYNAMITE stated: “Red Sonja is the original female "action" hero, but Kulan Gath is undoubtedly one of the most powerful villains in comic book history! As the scripts come in from Oeming, we’re on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happens next, and we know the fans are going to go wild when we get to the end of this one! And the addition of covers by Mike Mayhew, Marat Mychels and Paul Renaud this month (with series artist Mel Rubi) makes the event that much more exciting!”

    On recent releases, fans and critics are glowing over the RED SONJA series, including Dynamite’s own (well, from our messageboards) Krazyety in a review that he’s spreading around the web:


    Best Shots at Newsarama declared: “Oeming’s certainly displayed a knack for warrior tales over time, and he totally gets the brawn (and subtleties) of the genre. This is a strong, great-looking book, and I’m always happy to have read it.”




    RED SONJA #17(SEP063222) WRITTEN BY MICHAEL AVON OEMIG; ART BY MEL RUBI WITH STEPHEN SADOWSKI; COVERS BY: MEL RUBI (25%), MIKE MAYHEW (25%), MARAT MYCHELS (25%) AND PAUL RENAUD (SHIPPING IN EQUAL RATIO)!


    The Penultimate issue of Red Sonja’s most ambitious story arc is here as we head toward the climatic finale of the RETURN OF KULAN GATH!

    Sonja and her band of friends, warriors and old gods, battle against the Borat Na-Fori and his evil hordes as Kulan Gath awaits the outcome, and the fate of the whole world hangs in the balance! Written by Michael Avon Oeming with art by Mel Rubi and Stephen Sadowski!

    Plus: Another round of fabulous covers, this month featuring Mel Rubi, Mike Mayhew, Marat Mychels and the Red Sonja debut of Paul Renaud!
