Frank Cho draws Red Sonja variant covers for limited release

Legendary artist Frank Cho is back this month with a new way to get your hands on an exclusive run of a variant comic book cover design he created for Dynamite Entertainment’s ongoing Red Sonja series.  Initially part of an earlier crowdfunding campaign, Dynamite has just opened up the opportunity for anyone to get their hands on one of four styles of Cho’s beautiful rendition of the famous “She-Devil with a Sword,” with color work supplied by frequent Cho collaborator Sabine Rich.  According to Cho, “When Dynamite asked me to draw the Red Sonja cover, I jumped at the chance.  Who doesn’t love a redhead with a sword?  The cover will show Red Sonja at her best – power and beauty.  My goal is to make her look strong, classic, timeless and iconic.”  This limited time opportunity also provides the opportunity to purchase other collectibles featuring this definitive image of Red Sonja.


The issue getting the special treatment is Red Sonja, Issue #13, an issue that marks the beginning of Year Two of writer Mark Russell’s latest fantasy epic.  Artist Bob Q illustrates the inside pages of the issue, about a fatal prophecy and a ruler trying to maintain order over a land set for impending destruction.


Here’s a look inside this issue, courtesy of Dynamite:

Check out Dynamite’s current crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo here, where you’ll find three standard covers: one full color with Red Sonja logo, one full color without logo, and one black and white art with logo, plus a black and white line art version limited to 50 copies (shown above).

You’ll also be able to check out opportunities to buy CGC graded “slabbed” copies, a signed or unsigned 18″ x 24″ color lithograph (shown above), a challenge coin, autographed comics, and comic bundle deals.

Just make sure you act quickly.  The limited count products could run out at any time, and the entire opportunity ends in 29 days.  Then add Red Sonja to your comic pull list at Elite Comics or your local shop.
