Dynamite Entertainment will be taking part in New York Comic Con this week and have announced their booth, panels, guests, exclusives, and more, including a celebration of Red Sonja’s 45th Anniversary.

You’ll find Dynamite at booth #1829, and that anniversary panel is: “Dynamite Presents 45 Years of Seeing Red: Celebrate Red Sonja’s History and Her Battle for Female Empowerment in Comics“.


Here’s more information on that panel:

Robert E. Howard’s She-Devil with a Sword, the classic sorcery heroine Red Sonja, made her comic book debut in 1973’s Conan the Barbarian #23 by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith, before evolving into the archetypical example of the duality between femininity and fierceness that she is today. Join iconic creators Amy Chu, Gail Simone, Louise Simonson, Erik Mona, Larry Hama and more, as they dissect Red Sonja’s more than four-decade history and trailblazing impact on strong female characters in comics.

Panel guests include*:

  • Amy Chu (Writer, Red Sonja)
  • Gail Simone (Writer, Red Sonja)
  • Louise Simonson (Writer, Red Sonja)
  • Erik Mona (Writer, Pathfinder: Worldscape)
