Dynamite debuts a new Red Sonja mini-series -- The four issue "QUEEN OF THE FROZEN WASTES" mini-series features a story from Marvel Exclusive creator Frank Cho who is joined by veteran comics writer Doug (The 'Nam) Murray for this special series event! The two co-writers are joined by artistic sensation Homs, making his Hyborian debut.
Sonja heads to the frozen north in a stunning first issue filled with action, drama and special cover artists (all three of whom will be providing covers for each issue of this mini-series event): Frank Cho, Mark Texeira and Homs!
In the midst of a huge battle, Sonja Encounter's a massive Berserker, during the course of this fight Sonja is Knocked out - Coming to, she finds herself in a huge Cave, surrounded by dead bodies. Where has she ended up? The first issue of "Queen of the Frozen Wastes" is exciting, from beginning to end - with so much action their's got to be at least 80,000 hit points worth of damage done within just the first few pages. Even when the action ends up stopping, it still find's a way to keep your blood pumping, with various situations that keep you guessing what's going to happen, or what's going on. From the Writing, to the Art, it's everything you could possibly want from Red Sonja. I honestly can't find anything at all to complain about. It's a nearly perfect starting issue!
