Dynamite Entertainment has announced that its Red Sonja multiverse event Sonjaversal is set to expand from its initial five-issue miniseries run, with writer Christopher Hastings (Unbelievable Gwenpool) and artist Pasquale Qualano (Dejah Thoris) returning for an all-new story arc (and/or jumping on point for new readers) beginning with Sonjaversal #6 this July.
With the opening story blasting open the metaphorical toy chest and introducing an endless expanse of Sonja’s battling for the fate of the universe, now the team will drill down and focus on select Sonja’s in a more episodic format.
Making her moody debut in this issue is Noir Sonja! She’s on the trail of someone making a huge splash in the criminal underworld – only problem is that they’re dead. Actually, she has more problems, as a whole new onslaught of alternate Sonja’s throw off her investigation.
“I love to play with genre, and this arc is going to be all about mashing up Red Sonja’s sword and sorcery with noir, then gothic horror, then space opera, and 80s action movies. It’s a blast,” said writer Christopher Hastings.
Sonjaversal #6 will go on sale in July 2021.
