Dynamite has two new announcements involving their All-Female written summer event Swords of Sorrow. There will be another one-shot special in the event, Swords Of Sorrow: Miss Fury / Lady Rawhide. There will also be a special cosplay variant cover for Swords Of Sorrow #3 based on a photo four cosplayers did reenacting the first issue cover by J. Scott Campbell.
The photograph featured as the Cosplay Edition of Swords of Sorrow #3 was the brainchild of cosplayer Tabitha Lyons, who approached photographer Andrew Dobell of Creative Edge Studios with the idea to reenact the cover to Swords of Sorrow #1, as illustrated by industry superstar J. Scott Campbell. The original cover depicts four stars of the series: Red Sonja and Vampirella (two characters with long traditions of comic book adventuring), as well as literary heroine Dejah Thoris (from the Warlord of Mars novels and comics) and Jana from Frank Cho's Jungle Girl. The photo reenactment features four lovely cosplayers: Tabitha Lyons as Red Sonja, Tasha Mackenzie as Dejah Thoris, Chiquitita Cosplay as Jungle Girl, and Mojo Jones as Vampirella. Fans and cosplay enthusiasts everywhere can look for this cover edition to hit stores on July 8th.
Slated for release in September, the Swords of Sorrow: Miss Fury / Lady Rawhide special combines the rebellious Western heroine with the unpredictable costumed crime-fighter, whether they like it or not. Written by Mikki Kendall and illustrated by Ronilson Freire, the one-shot comes with a cover by artist Mirka Andolfo.
