Chaos! is coming to Hyboria in 2020 as Dynamite Entertainment launches the new limited series Red Sonja: Age of Chaos from writer Erik Burnham and artist Jonathan Lau.
In Red Sonja: Age of Chaos, a cosmic level spat between Mistress Hel and Lady Demon leaves Sonja and characters like Chastity, Evil Ernie, Purgatori, Jade and more stuck in the middle. Alliances will be made to combat this mayhem and great evil, but Sonja may have to resort to something she never would have guessed – enlisting the help of her sworn enemy, Kulan Gath!
“I am INCREDIBLY excited to get a return trip to the Hyborean Age to spend a little more time with Red Sonja,” said Burnham. “She’s an incredibly fun character to write, and the contrast of her nature up against the magic and mayhem of the Chaos! characters is going to make for a good time at the ol’ keyboard. Even better, Jonathan Lau’s art is gonna blow the doors off (please, have all doors reinforced before opening the book). Hyperbole aside, I’m looking forward to the project and can only hope the readers have as much fun as we do on it. Now let’s go get violent!”
“My mission has always been to bring big action back into comics, which is sorely lacking in the “dialogue-heavy” style of comics nowadays,” adds Lau. “Writers like Erik have given me artistic freedom when it comes to fight scenes. He says something like ‘Hey Jon, I leave to you these 3-5 pages as long as this certain guy wins but loses an arm at the last panel.'”
Red Sonja: Age of Chaos #1 will go on sale in January 2020.
