Red Sonja at The Black Gate

Hello all,

Thought I would pass along a link to The Black Gate, a fantasy literature blog. Michael Penkas emailed me to let me know he is doing reviews of the early Marvel appearances. His Red Sonja mentions can be found here.

The Wizard and Red Sonja Show

A while back we posted a little about the "The Wizard and Red Sonja Show" from "The Erotic Worlds of Frank Thorne #6".

While doing a little research I found this older blog post with a lot of photos and some scans of the original comic.  http://bronzeageofblogs.blogspot.com/2009/06/frank-thorne.html
And these newer ones, http://www.anthonypryor.com/?p=1203 (sorta), http://www.anthonypryor.com/?p=1220 and http://www.anthonypryor.com/?p=1235 (better).



The original comic is fairly tongue in cheek and a lot of nods to long time Red Sonja readers/fans, but certainly worth the read.

Red Sonja from Hasslefree Miniatures

Hasslefree Miniatures are a web based company that produce some high quality gaming miniatures for the role playing and war games market for reasonable prices (they also bundle in sweets with each purchase which is nice). They recently produced a Red Sonja miniature, named Sana (probably for copyright reasons). She is supplied unpainted and will set you back £4.17 for a metal version and £11.66 for resin. Not bad prices for a 28mm high miniature.

She can be found in the Fantasy Human section at http://www.hfminis.co.uk/


This one is mine and painted by yours truly.

Red Sonja Unchained


Upcoming mini series by Peter V Brett and following on from the events of Red Sonja Blue. February is going to be a good month (if the world doesn't end that is...)

Nelson Dániel

Nelson Dániel has been a favorite of mine for a while, but I do not follow comic art much. I first found him through some awesome Luchador art. It seems now he has a book of female heroines, though not being a Spanish speaker/reader, I am not entirely sure. Anyway, he included Big Red, which I am sharing below.


Check out his blog sometime. I think he does some awesome work.

Sonja at the Cave of Cool

Up past the Northern borders of 'Merica sits Calvin's Canadian Cave of Coolness. Standing vigilant and protecting us all from the dreaded cephalopod invasion.

He recently ran a nice set of pictures featuring our favorite she-devil.

Say hi while you are there.

Red Sonja #76 and new creative team

 
Red Sonja #76 features a new creative team, with Eric Trautman saying goodbye with #75, Brandon Jerwa will be handling the writing duties, while Jack Jadson will be handling the artwork. Shame to see Eric go as he has given us (well at least me) some enjoyable stories over the last 2 years or so.
The other big news is that this new arc follows on from the Prophecy mini series, not sure I like the sound of that but perhaps it can be handled well.

ON SALE DATE: January 30
The Crimson Well" (part 1 of 6) - The She-Devil has been suspiciously absent for nearly a full season. There are many rumors and tall tales surrounding her disappearance, but the truth of the matter is far more outlandish, and terrifying, than any tavern story. Following the PROPHECY event, Red Sonja has placed herself in exile, desperately hoping to protect the world from the demonic influence that threatens to consume her very soul.

CG Sonja

I was perusing CGHub - which is always a good source of visual, and sometime Red Sonja-esque, goodies - and decided to do a Sonja-specific search. There were a bunch of hits, but this one by a guy with the moniker of Anchuvi, is one that caught my eye.

It's a lot more Cartoony than Parrilo's visualizations of Sonja, but I like this 3D-rendered Sonja. Here's what the artist had to say about it:

Artist's Comments

For a change I decided to work to a concept so I chose one by artist Dominic Marco which was not only cool, but also matched my own style.

I built her in Silo before rendering in Maya. I then tweaked her and added further details in Photoshop.

And if you prefer Parrillo, there's a Parrillo gallery containing Sonja stuff there, too.

Red Sonja by Mel Rubi

I found this for sale on eBay quite a while ago, unfortunately it was well out of my price range, but managed to save a copy of the image.

Enjoy.

SONJA by Master SANJULIAN

I really have no words...the Man is about as talented as one can get in one lifetime.

The art of FRANK BRUNNER...


I found this piece on Ebay...and it's currently still listed if you want to take the chance.  Along with it was a signed copy of the issue the original Frank Brunner art appeared on.  I'd take a shot at it...but theres a chance I could win and then I won't have the money to pay.  Because that's how my luck works.  Anyway...enjoy the cool original art by the esteemed Mr. Frank Brunner.

Covers for Red Sonja #72 - 74



Some more great covers by Mr.Geovani, though #73 looks really painful, not sure how she's standing after that....
 
Enjoy.

Blue Concept Art

Concept artwork for Red Sonja : Blue by Walter Geovani, who for me is one of the best artist's to depict Big Red (I just wish Dynamite would get him back on the regular series), showing Sonja in her replacement attire, which is a homage to her 1980's apparel (though missing the black and yellow sash around her waist).
The finished article, personally I thought this was a welcome change to the chainmail bikini and would have liked to have seen her carry on wearing it for a while. Oh well, I can dream.
Enjoy.

Red Sonja Unconquered Artwork

Hi there, TheMightyFlip here, newest contributor to this here fine blog about everyones favorite red head. I thought I'd make my first offering by sharing the great images found within TSR's Advanced Dungeons and Dragons module "Red Sonja Unconquered" from 1986 by Clyde Caldwell who supplied some fantastic images.

Sonja & Friends in Dynamite's Prophecy

I may be the odd-man-out here, but I'm not a huge fan of Paul Renaud's Red Sonja covers - I really prefer Jusko's, Parillo's, Linsner's and...well, pretty much any of the artists who paint her likeness - though the "paint" is as likely to have been applied to the canvas electronically these days.

But I have to admit that the Sonja gracing the most recent (and not actually read until yesterday) cover of Dynamite's Prophecy (issue 3) is pretty damn impressive. (Yeah, I'm a bit behind on my comic reading. My unread comics now fill over two long boxes in my garage.)

I was planning to scan the cover of my own copy of the book to get a super-mega-hi-res image, but I haven't quite gotten around to it yet, so enjoy this image of the cover lifted from the interweb.

As far as the story between the covers...well, it's pretty silly (Sonja chasing Kulan Gath through time and uniting with other characters from Dynamite's large-breasted stable to take him down). It's illustrated about as well as most of Dynamite's books.

It's not exactly a "must buy" for Red Sonja fans, but I generally pick up anything Sonja-related I can find. This issue might be worth acquiring for the cover alone.

Sonja online & Sale

I have been enjoying reading all sorts of Red Sonja back lists on my tablet.

Thanks to Comixolgoy I can buy tons of Red Sonja comics and get them sent right to my tablet, phone or computer.

So I thought I'd mention that there is a sale for the next three days on "Dynamite Damsels".

It's not all the Red Sonja titles. But this would be a good way to get caught up.

Red Sonja variant covers.

Top cover by Walter Geovani and the bottom cover is by Paul Renaud.

I just love these Sonja standing victorious shots....they're SHEXY as Sean Connery would say.

Red Sonja publicity shot...

I always maintained that someone should do a renegade version of Red Sonja and call it CONAN III " The song of Red Sonja " just re-dub Kalador into CONAN and monkey with the opening credits...that's easy nowadays.

Another Red Sonja anime....

I just love the way these anime's come out.... they always make her look so sweet...and deadly!

The art of Conny Valentina

I was over at Kal's again checking out the assorted menagerie of coolness he's got in his cave. I come across this really sweet piece of Red Sonja art by Conny Valentina...I like it a lot. It reminds me in many aspects of the late great Dave Hoover's work. Taking nothing away from Conny...her technique and application is beautiful. If you want to see more from Conny follow the link below to the CAVE OF COOL!http://calvinscanadiancaveofcool.blogspot.com/2012/08/conny-valentinas-super-girls.html
