Red Sonja's SAVAGE Side Unleashed by Superstar Dan Panosian
New Series Debuts in November!

July 19, Mt. Laurel, NJ: 
Dynamite is excited to announce a brand new Red Sonja epic that continues the 50th anniversary celebrations, as multitalented creator Dan Panosian unleashes her ferocious side in Savage Red Sonja this November!

Only a character like Red Sonja can deliver savagery quite like this! Panosian and the team are hearkening back to the classic era of Robert E. Howard's sword and sorcery. Red Sonja finds herself tasked with tracking down a long hidden, mysterious gem from an ancient and crumbled kingdom. She'll be traveling along through a dangerous wasteland, at least up until she comes across a wayward prince and his betrothed trying to escape fearsome bandits. Then a giant serpent erupts from beneath the sands. And that's only the beginning... This new tale is filled with suspense, the supernatural, and all with a savage take on Sonja at the center!

“I wanted to write a story that combines heroic fantasy and elements of mystery – but I also wanted to examine the mindset of Red Sonja," said writer Dan Panosian. "She’s not only a savage warrior but she’s also very cunning and calculated. So, creating a story that centers around a mystery seemed like the perfect way to capture both sides of everyone’s favorite She Devil with a Sword!”

“When I discovered the talents of Alessio Petillo and Francesco Segala, I knew the series would be special. The art pays tribute to the very best of the Red Sonja stories I grew up with. Every page is a treat for the eyes!”

Veteran superstar Panosian is beloved for his contributions to franchises like X-Men, Captain America, then was pivotal in the early era of Image Comics with artwork for Prophet and others. Today he's acclaimed for his art as well as his writing chops on titles like Slots, Alice Ever After, Canary, An Unkindness of Ravens, Black Tape, and others. Panosian has previously contributed to the She-Devil With a Sword across several covers, including brilliant ones recently for the Unbreakable Red Sonja series that teed up the 50th anniversary.

He's joined here by interior artist Alessio Petillo. The rising Italian star has done work for foreign publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore, and Dynamite is excited to mark his major American debut! Colorist Francesco Segala and letterer Dave Sharpe round out the team.

As mentioned, Panosian will be contributing covers as well, offering more of his stunning attention to detail and unique approach to illustration and colors. He's brought along a squad of superstars to round out the cast of covers, including superstars Frank Cho and Arthur Adams. One more great contributor will be revealed soon!

Further information on the series and all the finished covers will be shared shortly with fans!

For those attending San Diego Comic Con, or tuning in from afar, Dan Panosian will be featured on two panels discussing this series.
