  • When will Red Sonja #4 and vs. Thulsa Doom #1 be released?

    Anyone know the release dates for Red Sonja #4 and Red Sonja vs. Thulsa Doom #1? Is there a release schedule I could find somewhere for Red Sonja comics?

    Hey Condotierre! Welcome to the Dynamite Board!

    The answer to your questions - both of them - is, well...yes and no...

    Yes, there were release dates. However, "Red Sonja" has experienced delays throughout the year. At this stage, I'd be expecting these to continue for the next few issues. The best rule of thumb is - expect it when it appears on the stand. In answer to the second question is yes - there is/(was) a release schedule here at the Dynamite website. However, the delays have rendered this defunct and it should not be used as a source of accurate release dates. At this stage, the release schedule is, literally, "When It Gets Here".

    I'm terribly sorry I can't give you any more accurate info than that. Previous schedules and release dates for the comic have been given here, but have proven to be somewhat off the mark, and I would not like to build up your expectations only to have them dashed; my own hope is that it shouldn't be too far off! This is, unfortunately, the best advice I can currently give on the issue. Sorry mate!

    Tommy.

      Don't know what this means unless they have decided to concentrate on catching up before soliciting new issues but Diamond has cancelled retailer orders for:Adventures of Red Sonja Volume 2 and Red Sonja #8.

        NEWSARAMA has announced Red Sonja #4 will be in shops on the 18th January. That's a month and a half since #3 was released, so they're falling further behind, and not even standing still...

        I have no idea Sonja vs. Thulsa Doom is out. It has a release date of December. But I'm sure we'll se Sonja Goes East first.

          I'm mostly curious as to what could be causing such huge delays. Have they given a real, solid reason or been vague about it?

            Last we heard about lateness is here:

            http://www.newsarama.com/dynamitenew...teLateness.htm

            They basically bit off more than they could chew.

            The plan was "Issue #4 in the middle of November, issue #5 at the end of November, and issue #6 in the beginning of December and #7 at the end of December." It obviously didn't work out. #4 is 4 months late, Sonja Goes East was supposed to be out Nov, Sonja vs. Thusa #1 was planned for Dec (with #2 Jan).

              It's very disappointing no-one from Dynamite have said anything here . Seems like they don't care.

                Not the case at all, just busy getting comics out the door. The more time talking on each and every board, the more time it takes to get the comics out...

                Sonja #4 is out next week...

                  Isn't this YOUR message board? There have been numerous topics & responses by various users regarding the continual delays, not only on Red Sonja, but the other titles as well. I, myself, have emailed Dynamite Entertainment several times asking for a simple response to some of the postings, but none have been answered to responded to. How about spending less time on other message boards & more time on your own? These books are called periodicals for a reason. If you can only commit to publishing once a quarter, that's fine, just don't string us along like you have been. What are you now, 4 months behind schedule? That is inexcusable! Maybe if you spend less time producing 6+ variant covers per issue you might be able to come closer to meeting your deadlines. That's just being greedy. So far we have seen nothing but broken promise after broken promise from Dynamite Entertainment. How many customers & future sales have you lost for yourselves due to these poor business practices?

                    I really have to agree with Batbob71 on this one.

                    While I am glad there are variant covers, because some artwork I've seen for Red Sonja has just been an eyesore to me, there should also be a reasonable stopping point for the madness. I would be happy if they did it like DH is doing it with Conan: one cover, done by one excellent artist. If they re-print, just for flavor, change the cover up. I can understand that better than I can the greed over the (extreme?) collectors who will snatch up six or seven different covers just to have a complete "set".

                    I was really excited when I found out Red Sonja was in print. I had a companion for my Conan collection. Makes me wish DH was doing Red Sonja on top of Conan... We'd probably be up to speed on issues.

                    And I really mean no offense to anyone, so I appologize if it comes across all evil-like.

                    Okay.. I think I'm done rambling now. Sorry, guys

                      Red Sonja #4

                      I just saw the Diamond shipping list for this coming wed & Red Sonja #4 is on there. Take it for what it's worth. I'll believe it when I see it, afterall, Dynamite Entertainment is only 5 months late in shipping. That's right, 5 months. For those of us keeping track, they're supposed to be on #8 this month, by their own release schedule. Looks to me like yet another broken promise from Dynamite (or should I say Mediocre) Entertainment - there's no way they're going to release #'s 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 in the remaining 2 release dates left in January. It would be nice if they'd actually address these concerns rather than make up more excuses.
