Swords of Sorrow: Red Sonja Vs Jungle Girl is part of Dynamite’s all-female written summer event starring their top female characters. This issue is written by Marguerite Bennett and drawn by Mirka Andolfo. Marguerite did this writer’s commentary on the issue.

PAGE ONE

First page, we just wanted a quick opening to catch up readers who may not be following the whole of the crossover, or those who are and needed a swift reminder of Sonja’s location, tasks, and motivation. She and Dejah Thoris discovered that these portals are engineered, and Sonja takes it upon herself to go find the villain and chop of their head, while Dejah turns back to protect her people in their hour of need—fairly informative of character, too.

Layout 1

PAGE TWO – PAGE THREE

If you can, always make Page Two a splash. Dirty writer trick. Tighten tension on Page One and unlock it on Page Two.Ohhhh, Sonja, making friends wherever you go.

Layout 1Layout 1

PAGE FOUR – PAGE FIVE

Or, regarding splash pages, go overboard.I wanted to write a pulp comic—a visual feast, big fat colorful panels. Here we see the jungle, the ice storm, the dinosaurs, and Sonja—four things that should not collide. We’ve got a gorgeous world, but a world clearly out of balance—maybe more beautiful for the disharmony, but decidedly less stable and more dangerous. I was really looking forward to this spread and Mirka’s fantastic.

Layout 1Layout 1

PAGE SIX – PAGE SEVENPoor Sonja. The spirit was willing, but the plot is causing you trouble. Pixar Rules: Coincidence can get your character into trouble, but it cannot get them out.Fortunately, Sonja loves trouble.(Also, I freaking love Mirka’s art. Jeez.)

Layout 1

PAGE EIGHT – PAGE NINE

Cheesecakey, if your cheesecake could occasionally murder you. I actually rather like good cheesecake when it’s in most pulp comics—context, personhood, and execution are everything, though. You can tell me if I succeeded or not.Jana also only got the drop on Sonja because Sonja just went from zero gravity back to insane humidity and dehydration. Jana is actually not a very capable fighter—she’s more skilled at hunting, tracking, and misdirection.Also, I think I quoted Lion King’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” to Mirka regarding Sonja and Jana’s tumble down that hillside and wiggled my eyebrows at her. God bless Mirka.I also really enjoy wordplay and archaic insults. I took far, far too many Linguistics classes in school and there is an alternate timeline where I became a linguist. Sonja’s “well-traveled barbarian” complements Jana’s cheerful ignorant innocence well, too—personality is everything when you’re baring this much skin.

PAGE TEN

Awwwww, making friends! Friendship is magic, you guys, don’t you watch MY LITTLE PONY?

PAGE ELEVEN

Yup, and there’s Mistress Hel, wishing she were cool like Sonja and Jana, wishing she had moves like Jagger.Also enjoyed having two women running around in chainmail and fur bikinis and becoming friends and teaching each other things and making plans for their future friendship.(My parents aren’t going to read this, are they?)

PAGE TWELVE – PAGE THIRTEEN

Ahhhhh, quite like these pages. Really wanted the wrongness of the storm to come across in a beautiful way. Mirka nailed it.

PAGE FOURTEEN

Some points about Jana and her role in the jungle—she is a hunter. She is a meat-eater and she kills. But she kills to survive or to feed her tribe. This was wanton and cruel. And now she’s gonna murder your punk ass.

PAGE FIFTEEN – PAGE SIXTEEN

Friendship is magic but it is also obnoxious puns. Jamie McKelvie is right; working with Kieron Gillen has ruined me.

PAGE SEVENTEEN – PAGE NINETEEN

Oh, poor Bel’lok. I designed you to be our pretty doe-eyed damsel and you’re so good at it. I like his vulnerability immensely; I like his modesty and his will to press on, even as he is injured, even as he is surrounded by strangers. Black male characters in comics are so often portrayed as the muscle, and I wanted to expand into something gentler, cognitive, and romantic, in terms of race and gender performance. Criticize away—I’m learning, too. Bel’lok is far and away the smartest and cleverest person in the whole arc. He’s done his homework and he knows what’s going on and he might just know how to fix everything.

PAGE TWENTY

“What’s going on” being “Mistress Hel is being a massive jerkface.”

Dynamite Entertainment is excited to announce the next installment of the Battlestar Galactica saga as writer Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Hoax Hunters) and artist Breno Tamura (Batgirl and the Birds of Prey) take the helm of in Twilight Command, coming this winter!

In the spirit of Rogue One—but all BSG—Battlestar Galactica: Twilight Command follows a group of men and women who’ve lost everything, who’ve compromised their souls and are in need of redemption—and they find it on New Caprica, in a one-way mission that will set the stage to free the human race from Cylon occupation.

bsg1.jpg

"I'm not kidding when I say that this is the exact story I've been wanting to tell since I watched Battlestar Galacticawhen it first aired. I always thought there were so many stories to tell on New Caprica, and being able to expand the Battlestar Galactica world with new characters--and old favorites--is so amazing,” said writer Michael Moreci. “Not only that, but this is a bit of a different kind of Battlestar Galactica story. I liken it to what Rogue One did for Star Wars; it maintained the spirit while creating something new.”

“This series is a stellar addition to the Battlestar Galacticacanon,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “We've had the distinct pleasure of publishing Battlestar Galactica stories for over a decade and Twilight Command will no doubt be a fan favorite."

“As a huge Battlestar Galactica fan, this is the exact kind of story I'd want to see, and I'm thrilled to be telling it," added Moreci.

Dynamite Entertainment today announced plans to launch a brand new ongoing Red Sonja series as Eisner-nominated author Mark Russell (The Flintstones) and artist Mirko Colak (Conan) deliver a savage story of metal and blood in 2019!

In Red Sonja, Russell and Colak bring forth the tale of Tomyris, a world conqueror possessing a massive army and a fatal prophecy. A bastard sorceress craves revenge. And a fearsome red-haired warrior is made wartime ruler of a homeland set for decimation. No man knows the place of her birth, nor where she learned to wield a sword to shame many a male. They know only that she is called The She-Devil Of The Hyrkanian Steppes. That, and RED SONJA.

"I’m a huge fan of ancient history because there’s no clear line where the history ends and legend begins, so in a way, all ancient history is a work of fantasy," stated author Mark Russell. "I really wanted to write a fantasy title that allowed me to work in some of the incredible stories and themes of ancient history, in particular, the story of Tomyris, the bad-ass Queen of the Steppes, and it’s hard to imagine a better character to tell that story than Red Sonja, the bad-ass Queen of Comics."

"Mark Russell’s take on Sonja is steeped in greater-than-fiction history, with a humongous worldview. Sonja will be the focus, but what’s exciting is to see the lore and world-building that Mark’s infusing into this new ongoing, to create a fusion of modern storytelling while placing big classical elements front and center," added series editor Nate Cosby. "The rest of the creative team is in perfect harmony with the approach…artist Mirko Colak is drawing ...

Dynamite Entertainment and IDW Publishing announced today an epic crossover series from writer Scott Duvall (Narcopolis: Continuum) and artist Vincenzo Federici (Pathfinder: Spiral of Bones) where two cult classics clash for the first time with Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep!

In Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep, Ash embarks on a soul-searching road trip to Texas on a hunch that Elvis Presley may still be alive and kicking (and supposedly vanquished a mummy)! What follows is a series of universe-spanning events that involve an Elvis jumpsuit with special time-travel abilities, a trip to 70’s Vegas, plus the reveal of an evil new Book of the Dead, the Necronomicon Ho-Tep.

“Being a huge fan of the character of Ash, and by extension, actor Bruce Campbell, I was instantly drawn to the movie Bubba Ho-Tep, based on an original story by the great Joe R. Lansdale, and starring Campbell as Elvis. Immediately upon release, I added it to my DVD collection, and I would group it with Army of Darkness because it felt like a companion piece to it,” said author Scott Duvall. “Often viewing them in close succession, I knew the Ash and Elvis team-up would go together like peanut butter and banana. These two worlds already fit so well together in tone, it made it totally plausible that they could co-exist on the same plane. Wanting to see what it would be like if Ash and Elvis interact is a big part of what sparked this, and so I'm thrilled we'll get to finally see that in these pages. ”

Bubba Ho-Tep creator and author Joe R. Lansdale added, "Script and artist for the first issue of Army of Darkness vs Bubba Ho-tep are as delicious as a fried peanut ...

The visionary director is excited to stretch his legs and hit the road. To come face to face with the twisted fans of his perverse creations. "Toxic Avenger and I can’t wait to meet our fans at Barnes & Noble and to show the beautiful collectible Tromarrific book that Dynamite Comics created! Forget The Art of the Deal! Thanks to Dynamite you have The Art of Troma! I have been making movies for 50 years and this is the apex! The Troma Fans are the best," said the evil genius.

The 256-page deluxe hardcover is written by New York Times bestselling author Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong, Cowboys and Aliens) and compiles never-before-seen art, photos, and trivia from the cult classic studio.

Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz created Troma in 1974. The studio continues to create films like The Toxic Avenger,Tromeo and Juliet, and Poultrygeist. Their “Movies of the Future” have dared fans to turn away from their slime and blood-soaked flicks.

Dynamite Entertainment announces a Kickstarter campaign for the first-ever resin statue for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The publisher continues their strong partnership with gaming leader Paizo Inc. following years of expanding the lore of the game’s world. Backers can preorder their copies of the limited-edition statue and bundle in a range of extras currently available only through the Kickstarter.

Seoni, one of the most popular iconic heroes in the Pathfinder universe, was an obvious choice for the statue. The powerful Varisian spellcaster is perfect with her intricate tattoos and patterned clothing. The high-quality resin statue stands approximately 12 inches tall. The tattoos and other details like “dirt” and battle damage are all hand painted.

The statue is available in multiple variants. A “Spellcasting” edition portrays Seoni using her signature magic using a plastic energy effect. The “Battle Ready” edition swaps that out for her staff and an alternate pose. The Spellcasting version is available unpainted for the DIY enthusiasts.

Supporters can choose among a range of reward tier options, including Dynamite’s well-received comics, from the recent Spiral of Bones series to a complete set of nine graphic novel volumes – over 1,600 pages of Pathfinder content! Another option is the campaign setting book Sandpoint, Light of the Lost Coast signed by author James Jacobs. And of course, t-shirts! Or go big and get all the above!

Most exciting is the opportunity for tabletop devotees to collaborate with Dynamite and a professional sculptor to develop and create 10 custom pewter miniatures up to 35 millimeters tall.

“We've been creating great Pathfinder comics with Paizo over the last half-decade, but today, I’m immensely excited to announce the expansion of that partnership, starting with our first Pathfinder statue of Seoni,” shared Nick Barrucci, Dynamite Publisher/CEO. “We worked hand-in-hand with our friends ...
