Drawn Swords

An Unauthorized Exploration of Red Sonja and the Artists Who Brought Her to Life

Authored by Matthew Stephen Sunrich
Designed by Paul C. Giachetti
Foreword by Nancy A. Collins
Cover design or artwork by Andrew Dobell
Edited by Rich Handley

Since her debut in Marvel's Conan the Barbarian during the early years of the Bronze Age of Comics, Red Sonja, the scarlet-maned She-Devil with a Sword, has gone on to become the undisputed queen of sword and sorcery. She has hacked and slashed her way through more than 300 comic books to date-a number which continues to grow in the pages of Dynamite Entertainment's various series. Here we explore her adventures and how they relate to other comics, as well as novels, television programs, and films, and examine the work of the myriad artists whose pens and pencils gave her the breath of life.

Includes special foreword by fan-favorite Red Sonja writer Nancy A. Collins.
