The Handbook to the Conan Universe (1986)

Red Sonja's entry in Marvel's Official Handbook to the Conan Universe circa 1986. I still prefer the blue fur to the chainmail bikini.

Red Sonja #2

Red Sonja is on the loose in the Big Apple—and the followers of Kulan Gath are determined to track her down. But they underestimate the She-Devil; she’s adapting quickly to her new surroundings with the help of some new allies that include Max, a New York City cop with a secret past…

Called it...Kulan is this guy the Dr.Doom of Red Sonja?

Red Sonja (Vol.7) #1

A new chapter for the Queen of the Hyrkanian Age. Our favorite warrior has faced the toughest of demons, foes and strange magic, but nothing has prepared this 6 ft. tall barbarian for…the modern world. Emerging from a subway construction site in New York City, confronted by cops and guns, Sonja fights for her survival in a new and hostile world. Is she here by accident or by design? Who brought her here, and why? By the creative team of Amy Chu (Poison Ivy, KISS) and Carlos Gomez (Dresden Files).

Judging from the Rubi cover, Im guessing the bad guy is Kulan Gath again...even though they are using him as the bad guy for Pathfinder Worldscape....

New Red Sonja Ongoing ...Yaaaaay...erm...hang on...wait a minute!!!

So Dynamite have announced a new Red Sonja ongoing in December, starting with an #0 written by Amy Chu and drawn by Carlos Gomez.
Well looks like the bikini is back (and actually looks skimpier than before), interesting that Dynamite has so quickly dismissed the "brave new direction" of the previous series.
So anyway, Chu states she wishes to take Sonja out of her "comfort zone" and put her in new exciting challenges, sounds good...

Erm...why is Sonja fighting a train? Sighs... So the new exciting challenges, is rehashing the world/time jumping of Marvel Team Up, Prophecy and Swords of Sworrows...seriously Dynamite, are you that bereft of ideas?

1/6th Scale Red Sonja Action Figure

Released in May from Executive Replica's comes the first (I think) fully poseable action figure for Red Sonja, in her classic garb.

You get a hell of a lot of accessories, and it can be yours for the measly sum off $164.99....for that price I think I will just try and pick up one of the statues...

Bryan Singer Developing a Red Sonja TV Show?

According to these sources Bryan Singer is developing a Red Sonja TV show.

That last one is posting a very familiar image too.
I have it from a pretty reliable source that Fox’s X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer is currently developing an R-rated TV series based on Red Sonja. Now by saying R-rated that narrows down the places the series could run to something like HBO / Showtime or a streaming service like Netflix / Amazon.
Of course Luke Lieberman is involved seeing as he owns the property and will be executive producing along with Jason Taylor via Singer’s production company Bad Hat Harry. Singer will be directing and producing it along with Stephen L’Heureux and his Solipsist Films. And the money is coming from TWC/Dimension. 
Red Sonja was adapted for live-action with Brigette Nielson and Arnold Schwarzenegger back in 1985. The character made her comic debut in Conan the Barbarian #23 back in 1975 from writer Roy Thomas and artist Barry Windsor-Smith. She was loosely based on the Robert E. Howard character Red Sonya of Rogatino who first appeared in the Conan short story The Shadow of the Vulture in 1934. Currently the character has an on-going comic series published by Dynamite Entertainment and had a four-issue crossover with Conan last year.

Hopefully we will see something on this front!
