"I have always said that the thing that makes Red Sonja MOST dangerous is not her skill with a sword, or her speed," states acclaimed writer Gail Simone. "It's her cunning. Red Sonja is cunning. And she gets what she wants. When I first agreed to write Red Sonja, I wanted to do one great Sonja story and drop the mic (assuming of course that the story didn't suck and people instead started throwing things at me). So I wanted to do six issues. Then I started writing her, and she just got very controlling about it, frankly. I went from doing six issues to agreeing to twelve. I went from doing one Sonja book to two, adding the wonderful LEGENDS OF RED SONJA with some of my favorite female writers. Then I went from two Sonja books to three, in agreeing to do CONAN VS. RED SONJA. I kinda got greedy. So Dynamite have generously kept me on for an extended tour of more issues of mayhem, blood, sex, and red hair, because Sonja is Sonja, and Sonja is hard to turn down. Because Sonja is CUNNING."

"We couldn't have found a better partner for the She-Devil with a Sword than Gail." states Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "It was last year at Emerald City Con that we announced Gail on the series, and it's only fitting that we announce her extending her run at this year's Emerald City Con! When she showed up at the panel, with a sword in hand, we knew that her passion would bring out some of the best stories we would ever have, and she proved us right. We're really grateful that Gail is extending her run on the series."

Sonja can have a lover, they just can't have sex.

:'( Why not?

Sonjia vowed to the goddess Scáthach that she wouldn't have sex with a man unless beaten in a fight.
