March 16, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite and Gem Mint Collectibles announce the pair's second awesome collaboration on an exclusive limited edition comic book. This new Red Sonja exclusive is available right now on Indiegogo, kicks off a brand new series from top creators, and is even the all-new debut of an inspiring young artist!
This brand new cover is the professional debut of Gem Mint's daughter Jade Hope. The 16 year old artist is from South Florida and has been drawing since early childhood. She works with both traditional methods and digital, penciling, inking and coloring her pieces. Over the years she has been honing her craft, drawing both mainstream characters and developing her own creations. With her first published cover under her belt, watch out for her to take over the industry any time!
“It’s a proud Dad moment for me, for sure," said Stephen Small, the mind behind Gem Mint Collectibles. "I want to thank Dynamite for publishing her first artwork in comics and teaming up for this second project. I can’t wait to see what she does next.”
Gem Mint is one of the leaders on YouTube for comic and collectibles fans to keep up with the latest news and reviews. With over 100 thousand subscribers and continuing to climb, collectors tune into Gem's content and community for both recommendations and entertainment around comics, graphic novels, statues, trading cards and more.
Over on Indiegogo, fans of Red Sonja, Dynamite, Gem Mint Collectibles, and those newly minted fans of Jade Hope can pick up the comic in a number of variations to their liking. It's available with traditional trade dress, a logo-free edition, and in black and white to highlight the linework. A combo sweetens the deal for completists. While those looking to have a more personalized touch or preserve this gem can pick signed or CGC graded options.
Just as exciting as this fun family themed collaboration on the cover is the interior content! Underneath the collectible cover, Dynamite is presenting the fabulous first issue of the to be released Invincible Red Sonja #1. This prestige title is another family affair, as comic book power couple Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti (Harley Quinn) write an exhilarating adventure filled with pirates, mermaids, princesses, and much more. Artist Moritat (Sheena Queen of the Jungle) brings all the sword and sorcery action to the page.
