‘Red Sonja: Death and the Devil’ announced for September 2024

After she killed the Sultan of Turan in Birth of a She Devil, the kingdom dissolved into a bloody chaos of serpent cults and rival warlords vying to claim the throne.

Press Release

Dynamite Entertainment has revealed a new Red Sonja series on the way from writer Luke Lieberman titled Red Sonja: Death and the Devil. Out in September, the series will be drawn by Alberto Locatelli.

“For some reason we just take it as a given that the hero kills the villain and then it’s happily ever after. That’s not how the world works,” said writer Luke Lieberman. “There are always unintended consequences to battles and wars, personal or global. They are never clean or wrapped up with a bow, and if you take a life, you are responsible for whatever flows out of that action.”

So what’s Red Sonja: Death and the Devil about?

Sonja knows, the bloodshed and collapse into anarchy is her fault, so she returns to find the Sultan’s true heir. At least, that is the plan…

Covers for the first issue are by Joseph Michael Linsner, Celina, Moritat, and cosplayer Rachel Hollon. Check those out below!

June 20, Mt. Laurel, NJ: No good deed goes unpunished, and the She-Devil With a Sword will learn that in a brand new series by prolific writer Luke Lieberman in Red Sonja: Death and the Devil this September!

Readers know these sword and sorcery heroes like Red Sonja for their many conquests and enemies felled through their fables. Yet sometimes killing some foe and riding off into the sunset leaves a world of consequences behind. Sometimes, the balance of kingdoms could be at play. Across legendary, this reality is ignored, and it’s past time for Sonja to face the consequences of her blood path.

Sonja has dealt death so many times, and the spilled blood is coming back to haunt her, as chronicled by veteran scribe Luke Lieberman (Birth of the She-Devil, The Price of Blood). He’s joined by rising star artist Alberto Locatelli, who wowed readers with his work in Vampirella: Dead Flowers.
