Publisher Description.  Red Sonja is roaring into a brand new ongoing series for the hallmark celebration of 50 fantastic years across comics, film, and beyond!

Critically acclaimed writer Torunn Grønbekk is bringing her trademark flair for powerful women and weapon-wielding heroes (Thor, Valkyrie) to the Hyrkanian heroine for an exciting new era.  Grønbekk is joined on the series by illustrator Walter Geovani.  His contributions to the franchise go back to 2007, nearly to the beginning of Dynamite's publishing of Sonja.

The kickoff of the series finds Red Sonja on the run, framed for a heinous crime she did not commit and with an unseen force tugging at the back of her mind.  Fans can expect mirth, violent delights, and hair-raising action.  Yet even as Sonja deals with the terrors of war and mysterious magic, true danger will be threatening from the most unexpected sources.  Big surprises await readers, as the creative team pays tribute to the golden anniversary legend, while challenging her and the audience's expectations along the journey.
