The Dynamite Report #8: Jimmy Palmiotti Makes Red Sonja Invincible

Welcome back to The Dynamite Report! This May, Dynamite’s flagship heroine, Red Sonja, is getting a new series. The husband-and-wife duo, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, are co-writing The Invincible Red Sonja. They will also be joined by the artist known as Moritat, who will take on the pencils, inks, and colors. Additionally, Conner will provide the main covers for the series. Joseph Michael Linsner, Carla Cohen, Celina, and Frank Cho have also drawn covers for the upcoming series.

Palmiotti and Conner previously revitalized Harley Quinn as a solo character for DC. That’s also one of the main reasons why their Red Sonja run is already highly anticipated. Ahead of The Invincible Red Sonja #1’s launch in May, Palmiotti checked in to tell us what he and his creative partners have in mind for the She-Devil with a sword.

Additionally, Dynamite Entertainment has passed along the solicitations from June 2021, including covers and the description for The Invincible Red Sonja #2.

“Our award-winning duo of AMANDA CONNER and JIMMY PALMIOTTI continue Red Sonja’s mission to protect a young (and, shall we say, precocious?) princess as her wedding day arrives. But as the preparations for the festivities continue, a coveted icon of the kingdom is stolen and its protector, the king’s wizard, sets a bounty Red Sonja cannot resist. The strikingly beautiful sequential art of MORITAT, another killer cover by AMANDA CONNER and PAUL MOUNTS… all this can be YOURS!”

The Invincible Red Sonja #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday. May 5.  The second issue will follow on Wednesday, June 2. You can check out the rest of the upcoming covers below.
