Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment releases images and information today showcasing the premiere of the Dynamite Select: Red Sonja Statue (DEC063474). This magnificent rendition of Red Sonja is based on the work of artist extraordinaire Michael Turner’s stunning cover to Red Sonja #1! Red Sonja stands over 13″ tall on a 13″ x 11.5″ giant snake and swamp base. This amazing masterpiece was replicated by the sculpting and painting talents of Tom and Joy Snyder of Joy & Tom Studios; the very same people who brought us the Dynamite Select: Red Sonja Dell’Otto mini Bust.
Dynamite stated, “2007 is going to be a big year for Red Sonja as we continue to celebrate the 35th anniversary of her first appearance in comics in Conan #23 (Marvel) based on Robert E. Howard’s creation. To commemorate, we are producing posters, comics, statues and more- all by superstar creators! This statue is a must-have for the true Red Sonja fans, as well as all those Michael Turner fans out there. Michael Turner’s cover to issue #1 is one of the most compelling in the title’s history (hey, it’s Michael Turner we’re talking about- did you expect anything less) and Joy and Tom Snyder have replicated that cover flawlessly. The swamp, the giant snake, the swords, and of course Red Sonja- it’s all there in Tom and Joy’s amazing work of art and was meticulously sculpted under the watchful eye of Michael Turner himself.”
The artists, Tom and Joy Snyder, said about the opportunity to bring Michael Turner’s art to life, “We are grateful that the crew at Dynamic Forces had the confidence in our studio to offer us this project. Bringing Michael Turner’s cover to three dimensional form was a professional challenge and personal pleasure. Michael created a “Dynamite” illustration, and it is our hope that our statue realizes his intentions for the artwork. We hope that not only Michael, but also the fans of his work and all fans of Red Sonja will enjoy the results of our efforts.”
