Dynamite Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics will follow up their Conan / Red Sonja crossover series with a new one, Red Sonja / Conan by writer Victor Gischler. The first issue of the series will feature covers by Alex Ross, Ed Benes and Robert Castro.
In Red Sonja / Conan, the crimson-tressed warrior and Hyborian berserker are reunited during an impromptu tournament of arms, a festive occasion that unexpectedly gives way to supernatural menace. The famous fantasy pair — known for their camraderie in battle, the fiery tension of an unspoken passion, and the occasional rivalry towards each other as respected peers — must unite to face a horde of demons set loose upon the land. While the events of Red Sonja / Conan take place one year after the continuity established in the Conan / Red Sonja series of early 2015, the script has been carefully constructed to appeal to returning fans and newcomers alike.
Gischler has written adventures of Robert E. Howard barbarian warrior for Dark Horse in a miniseries called Conan: The Phantoms of the Black Coast. He's also worked with Dynamite twice before, with an acclaimed run on The Shadow and its spin-off series, Noir. Gischler's has also tried his hand with Joss Whedon's Buffyverse (Spike and Angel & Faith), as well as Marvel's The Punisher, Deadpool, and X-Men.
The new Red Sonja / Conan miniseries is slated for release beginning in Summer 2015. The current Conan / Red Sonja series, co-written by Gail Simone and Jim Zub, and featuring artwork by Dan Panosian, is available for purchase in stores now from Dark Horse Comics and Dynamite Entertainment.
