DAN BRERETON RETURNS TO RED SONJA!
Red Sonja: Deluge hits comic shops this November!
September 15, 2010, Runnemede, NJ - Writer/artist Dan Brereton takes on his favorite red-headed warrior again with Red Sonja: Deluge coming this November! In this special issue, a violent storm floods the lonely countryside, and Red Sonja takes shelter in a cramped inn. After a deadly altercation with the town bully, Sonja vows to keep out of the locals' power struggles. But when the dead man's brothers appear, all Hell breaks loose indoors as Mother Nature rages around them, threatening to awaken a long buried horror in the earth. This issue also features reprints of classic Sonja material!
"I have been a Feudal Japan junkie since the old SHOGUN mini-series debuted on TV," says writer Dan Brereton. "So I wanted to tell a story set in a place reminiscent of Medieval Japan and its seamy underworld, and having Sonja trapped in there seemed a great place for her to chew some scenery. The townsfolk in this story are pretty awful people, and its fun to watch them repeatedly underestimate and misjudge Sonja over and over again. They just cant take her at her word anymore than they can themselves be trusted. And of course, Sonja gets to cut loose and maim and kill as well, so I'm pretty jazzed to see this one hit the stands."
Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is a high fantasy sword and sorcery heroine created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She first appeared in Conan the Barbarian #23 by Marvel Comics. Red Sonja has become the archetypical example of the fantasy figure of a fierce and stunningly beautiful female barbarian who typically wears armor resembling a bikini or lingerie. The character now appears monthly in two of her own series, Red Sonja and Queen Sonja, as well as a series of mini-series and one-shots from Dynamite Entertainment. So don't miss Red Sonja: Deluge this November!
