Red Sonja Seeks Sanctuary In New One-Shot June 2014
With the main Red Sonja series, written by Gail Simone, continuing to be one of Dynamite’s best-selling titles, Dynamite is now presenting a Red Sonja special one-shot this coming June, Red Sonja: Sanctuary! Red Sonja: Sanctuary is written by Marc Mason, drawn by Noah Solanga, with a cover by Sergio Fernandez Davila (Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure)! This oversized issue will be available in June from Dynamite Entertainment in comic stores and digital.
In Red Sonja: Sanctuary, Raven returns! In a distant, hidden forest, Sonja finds Scathach’s other chosen warrior has turned over a new leaf and renounced violence. Can Sonja do the same? Offered a chance to have friends, family, and a life without the sword, Sonja begins to see the course of her life change. But when a group of mercenaries determined to bring Raven to justice enter the mix, Sonja discovers that perhaps the only course her life can ever take is one of violence and tragedy!
“If all you knew was death, what would happen if you were offered a new life,” says writer Marc Mason? When Raven, Scathach’s other favored warrior, returns, Sonja finds herself with an option she could have never anticipated: the chance to lay down her sword and embark on a new path. But such choices are not without cost, because even if Sonja can change, the world remains a brutal place and violence is never far away.”
Red Sonja: Sanctuary will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ April Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release on June 18th, 2014. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Red Sonja: Sanctuary with their local comic book retailers. Red Sonja: Sanctuary will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
