    'Red Sonja' to leap to silver screen
    Posted on Mon, Aug. 28, 2006
    By JEROME MAIDA

    (excerpt)

    "Red Sonja" was launched with a 25-cent No. 0 issue, intended to get people to sample the book, that sold 240,000 copies. Since then, Dynamite has kept the title's momentum going by having multiple covers each issue. The roster of superstar artists who have done "Red Sonja" covers in the last year include Michael Turner, Joseph Michael Linser, John Cassaday, Alex Ross, Marc Silvestri, Adam Hughes and Greg Horn. This reached its apex with issue No. 12, when Jim Lee and George Perez - arguably the two most popular artists in the industry - did two out of four covers available.

    Dynamite Entertainment proudly announced today that they are including a third cover on the upcoming Red Sonja #12 – the issue which features the return of Kulan Gath as Sonja’s GREATEST nemesis.

    In addition to the previously announced Jim Lee and George Perez covers, a third cover will be available in equal ration, featuring the pairing of John Romita Jr. and John Romita Sr. in homage to John Romita, Jr.’s classic cover depicting Kulan Gath on Uncanny X-Men #190. The piece, penciled by Jr., inked by Sr., and colored by Brian Buccaelleto, now features Gath and Red Sonja in the famous pose.

    “We were very fortunate – and are very thankful – that Marvel allowed John to work with us for this very special cover. We’re very fortunate that John Jr.’s able to do two covers for us, this being the first,” commented Dynamite Spokesperson J. Allen, “We’ve been working on this one for a LOOOONNNNGGGGG time and are very, very pleased at the end result. We were hoping to announce this with Jim and George’s cover, but wanted to make sure John Jr. could fit it in with his busy schedule and ensure it was in hand before announcing. John Romita Jr. is truly one of the most talented artists in the business, and his legacy in the industry is just being felt. I can’t say enough, so I won’t say much more. We’re fortunate and proud to offer this to the retailers and fans! John Romita Jr. added to this cover was a dream come true, and having John Romita Sr. ink him is truly “Dynamite!”

    As mentioned, Dynamite is shipping John Romita Jr’s cover as additional variant cover, in addition to the masterpieces done by Lee and Perez, and all three will ship in equal ratio. Dynamite reminds fans and retailers that issue #12 begins an exciting new story arc, and is a perfect jumping on point for fans, as well as the celebration of Sonja’s first year back! Retailers can re-order through Wednesday May 31st to guarantee their orders!

    RED SONJA #12 (APR063067) -- WRITTEN BY: MICHAEL AVON OEMING, ART BY MEL RUBI; COVER ART (SHIPPING IN EQUAL RATIO): the team behind the #1 comics of ’05 and ’06 - JIM LEE and GEORGE PEREZ (Approximately 33%/33%/33% RATIO), PLUS: JOHN ROMITA JR. AND SR. in homage to Jr.’s UNCANNY X-MEN #190!

    MIKE OEMIMG ON RED SONJA TURNING TWELVE
    by Byron S. Dane

    (excerpt)

    NRAMA: So now looking forward, what can you talk about in terms of the next and future storylines?
    Oeming: Issue #12 sets up the new direction of the series. If you think it was dark before, just wait until you see what's coming. Something amazing happens in issue #12 - we see Sonja's origin for the first time ever, a new major character is introduced who is a nice homage to the old series, and we reveal our villain.

    Big things happening.

    The teaser has been, what do Spider-Man, the Uncanny X-Men, the Avengers and Sonja have in common? And now it can be said that the answer to that question is Kulan Gath.

    But that’s the easy part [laughs]...

    This won’t be played as just another generic villain, Gath is going to be to be to Sonja what the Green Goblin is to Spidey, what Dr. Doom is to the FF, or, most importantly, what Magneto is to Professor X in the X-Men or Sabretooth has been to Wolverine. You can't have one without the other. This guy is going to change the world for Sonja forever, and on (or around or after) issue #18 or so, there will be a pre-Gath Sonja world and a post-Gath Sonja world. I can't say much more without giving too much away, but nothing, and I mean nothing will be the same I can promise you that.

    News: From George Pérez (Feb 2006)

     From George Perez
     

    RED SONJA #12 (Pérez Cover) (Jul 2006)
    Dynamic Forces
    Well, it's time for an all-too-infrequent update on what's going on at the International House of Pérez. I've read quite a number of posts on various message boards asking such things as"When will George be starting on THE BRAVE & THE BOLD?", "Will GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL ever come out?", "Is he working on the DC character turn-arounds for DC's official bible?" "Will that art be made available to the buying public?"

    Well here are some answers, a few unfortunately vague because, quite truthfully, I'm not sure of the answers myself.

    DC's big event books have really put a major monkey wrench in the production of the monthly books (not to mention some of the event books themselves). Because of my involvement in INFINITE CRISIS, which seems to grow with every issue, I've not been available to start anything on B & B except for the first issue's cover, which was done months ago in anticipation of my starting the actual title in November of 2005. That cover was supposed to appear in the WIZARD issue announcing DC's 2006 schedule of new titles. It was yanked when it became obvious that I could not start the book until after my return from vacation in late January so the release schedule was still undetermined. That vacation, planned over a year ago as a partial celebration of Carol's and my 25th Wedding Anniversary, also explains why I will have no interior art in IC #5. Upon my return I learned that Mark Waid, now heavily immersed in writing his share of 52, had not been able to work on B &B during my absence and will likely not be able to do so for a couple of months. I'm not hurting for work, however, as there are plenty of pages to draw for IC 6 & 7, far more than I had imagined when I agreed to help out on the project. INFINITE CRISIS' schedule overrules all others for the next two months. That includes B &B and any art for the DC Bible.

    As for the character art for the DC Bible (not its official name, by the way), I really have no idea whether it will appear in a published format, although I think it would be cool if I do a good enough job to warrant such a publication. Lord knows the royalties would be nice. But, until I can actually start on drawing them the subject's rather moot.

    The official status of GAMES is a bit more tricky. With all the post-IC work I have lined up, I don't see how I will have the time to get back on the graphic novel. Quite honestly, and honesty can be quite brutal, I wouldn't hold my breath on it ever being released. I know that my wonderful friend and co-creator Marv Wolfman is still guardedly optimistic on the resurrection of this project (a lot of that positive thinking having been fueled by me two years ago when I stated my intent to complete the art), but my subsequent exclusive contract with DC has prompted the company to utilize my talents on more current projects aimed at forming DC's future rather than just basking in the nostalgia of its past. The completed art in GAMES is over 15 years old, although it does hold up pretty damn well, in my opinion. I guess it could conceivably be restarted yet again, but it seems to become more unlikely with each new DC assignment in each passing new year. For that, I am sincerely sorry-- For Marv, for inker Mike Perkins who signed a Marvel exclusive since inking ten of the un-inked pages, for Al Vey, who had inked the earlier pages over a decade ago, for color artist Tom Smith, for the fans who have waited so long and whose hopes may be dashed yet again-- and, finally, for me. It would have been nice to put closure to the project. Oh, and for those who suggested that some other artist or artists finish the project, I suggested the same thing years ago. Unfortunately, DC only wanted this as a Wolfman/Pérez Titans story; so, without me, it's not getting done. An unfortunate Catch-22, I'm afraid. Still, there is always that small glimmer of hope. After all, what if I'm done with all my IC stuff and there's still no B & B work ready? You never know.

    I do have some non-IC work down the pipe, mostly covers. I still have two more JSA covers to draw and I've drawn a RED SONJA cover for Dynamite Comics (part of an agreement that pre-dated my DC exclusive) and still have a few covers to draw for that company. There's also the cover for the final collection of my WONDER WOMAN work. I've been approached by Wildstorm for a cover, but I haven't followed up on that yet.

    I am grateful that there are so many fans out there for which my continuing output seems to actually matter. Thanks for the support, the kind words, and even the critiques. Despite illnesses and setbacks, I'm thankful for the loyalty and affection of my fans. Along with the love and support of my wife, family and friends, it's what gives me the drive to get up in the morning and face that drawing board and peer into the snow-white blankness of the page-- and make my mark.

    News: From George Pérez (Feb 2005)

     From George Pérez

    RED SONJA #12 (Pérez Cover) (Jul 2006)
    Dynamic Forces











    I am currently inking the incredible Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on a project written by Phil Jimenez, who is also the cover penciler, with me inking Phil. Unfortunately, beyond that, I'm not at liberty to reveal what the project is so I've been calling it "The EZ Company Project" since all three creators share the same last two letters in our family names. DC Comics should be making an announcement relatively soon and it will be a relief to finally be able to talk about it openly.

    Contrary to solicitations I have indeed drawn the cover for FALLEN ANGELS #20. Due to a mix-up in the scheduling it initially appeared that I couldn't do the cover, so the regular team was told to go ahead and draw the cover. When Peter David found out about that he reminded the editor that the deadlines had been pushed back and even though the book had been solicited with another cover, Peter figured few would be bummed out to find that there was a Pérez cover after all.

    I have also drawn a cover for a Marvel Visionaries book spotlighting my 1970's run on FANTASTIC FOUR. Tom Smith colored that piece and, as usual, did a wonderful job.

    I am currently drawing a variant cover for Top Cow's CITY OF HEROES #1 and will be drawing the cover for a CITY OF HEROES novel called "Web of Arachnos". This should be the first of three covers for a series of CoH novels. And since I just mentioned Top Cow, I should also announce that I will be participating in a special 10th Anniversary edition of WITCHBLADE. I will be drawing three pages written by Ron Marz. And as I draw those pages I will be filmed by a video crew for TwoMorrows' DVD companion to its MODERN MASTERS book series.

    There have been other offers, including some covers for Dynamic Forces' RED SONYA and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I also will be providing a cover for DF's STORYTELLER, yet another retrospective on my career. (I am definitely being over-exposed). A cover for ForceWerks' B.A.B.E. FORCE is also on my schedule. There have been other one-shots I've been offered that I'm not yet free to discuss, or yet to accept, but after "The EZ Company Project" I will be primarily focusing my attention on completing GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Inker Mike Perkins has already started on some pages and Tom Smith has 30 pages ready to start so it's up to me to get busy so that Marv Wolfman can start dialoguing the first half of the book.

    As for conventions this year, here's my schedule for 2005 so far.
    February 25-27: Mega Con in Orlando, FL.
    March 18-20: Wizard World Los Angeles in Long Beach, CA
    April 22-24: Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville, PA (I even provided the T-Shirt art)
    July 14-17: Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA
    September 13-17: Comic Book Festival in Avilés, Spain

    Those are the confirmed shows. There is a possibility of more, but I'm trying to limit my time away from the drawing board this year.
