Official Press Release
July 21 2005, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment today released images and information concerning the 4th issue of the all-new ongoing Red Sonja series featuring the best creative talent assembled in comics and featuring an all-star line up of ultimate cover artists. And leading off the pack is the talented Marc Silvestri on cover detail with friends Billy Tan, Mel Rubi (Trademark wraparound cover) and Cully Hamner joining the issue's roster!
With the first issue of the series in stores this week (good things come to those who wait), Dynamite marches on with the all-new series and is working hard to put the series on a tight monthly schedule.
"Orders have been strong, and we expect to do well thanks to the support we've had from retailers and fans" commented Dynamite Spokesperson J. Allen. "Getting everything just right for #1 caused a few delays and we're working to curtail the ripple effect of those delays through the rest of the series. Issue #2 will also be late (sorry, but the 8 extra free pages put us even more behind), but by issue #3, you should see it getting back on track, and with hard work, issue #4 should be on time. It's taken a lot of work to keep the quality up, but hopefully the fans will enjoy the ride. All that being said, we've got a great another issue, with great cover art and great ordering incentives heading your way in September. Check it all out!"
