Swords, Sorcery, and Santa In Latest Dynamite Entertainment One-Shot

Dynamite Entertainment brings holiday cheer as Red Sonja gets her own holiday special! Authors Amy Chu (KISS, Red Sonja) and Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters, Red Sonja) team-up once again to find the Red Goddess in holiday hijinx. The 40-page Red Sonja Holiday Special will available December 5th, making it the perfect gift for comics fans everywhere. 

Featuring cover artwork by the talented Leonardo Romero (Hawkeye) and interior art by Ricardo Jaime (The Shadow) Red Sonja reminisces about the time she and Sir Max rescued a drunk Santa from the Grinch (Kulan Gath of course!) and learns the true meaning of Christmas.

I don’t believe a Red Sonja Holiday Special has ever been done before in her 45-year history, so this is a rare honor and challenge for me and my writing partner and friend Erik Burnham,” said co-author Amy Chu. “Erik calls me a “mad genius” but I say he is the true wizard with words. Erik is the only person I’ve ever co-written with, starting with KISS: The Demon miniseries and now Red Sonja. I love that I can lob the craziest ideas at him and he never says, nah, but, hey, that could work! 

I love working with Amy in general, but specifically on Red Sonja. I think we found a great rhythm in the last few issues of volume four and I’m excited to see what kind of shenanigans we can get the She-Devil into,” remarked co-author Erik Burnham. “Amy and I will talk about a few ideas, then she’ll go off and write out an outline, filling it with everything she wants. I’ll get her outline, find some surprises, and then try to surprise her as well when I build the final script. We’ve talked through several ideas for what a Sonja holiday special would be like, and I can’t wait to see where we land!

Red Sonja is one of our first titles a cornerstone character of Dynamite Entertainment’s publishing line the Red Goddess is long overdue for a holiday special.  This story has a lot of heartfelt emotion,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “After watching their work on the ongoing Red Sonja series, it was clear that Amy and Erik were the perfect pair to write this book.”
