Lucio Parrillo’s Seductive Red Sonja Comes to Indiegogo!
August 13, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Following the success with their crowdfunded Vampirella comic, Lucio Parrillo and Dynamite team up again on a fiery-hot limited edition Red Sonja comic on Indiegogo!
Dynamite’s sword and sorcery heroine were in the Queen Sonja series over a decade ago, and since then he’s painted her across different series and many styles. To many fans, he is likely the definitive cover artist for the character based on his prolific output and top tier craft. This latest masterpiece balances two of Lucio’s favorite elements of fantasy art, the beautiful human form and the raw violence that can come of it, as Sonja rests surrounded by severed heads after a fierce battle.
Fans can add this comic to their collection in a variety of ways. The standard edition with the iconic logo will fit alongside the majority of comics one picks up off the rack each Wednesday. For those looking for a more dedicated presentation to appreciate Lucio’s painting, an alternate “virgin” version free of logos is available. While a black and white alteration emphasizes his adeptness with light and shadows in his work. Options for signed and CGC graded copies are available. Or get all of the above! As an add-on, collectors can get a beautiful enlarged 18 by 24 inches lithograph of the painting. The high-quality print is ready for framing.
Additional options in the campaign include a statue based on fellow Red Sonja legend Frank Thorne’s art, rare promo trading cards, and the Vampirella #10 limited edition comic Lucio did. Those remaining copies are available at an increased premium now that its campaign is over, so don’t miss out on the Red Sonja comic at its initial incredible prices.
“Red Sonja is one of my favorite subjects. I love painting strong women, so it’s been a blast doing this oil painting,” said Lucio Parrillo. “This is a great opportunity to connect with all my fans and followers!”
“Lucio is one of the creators who have been with Dynamite since our early days. We’re incredibly fortunate to have such a fantastic working relationship,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “It definitely helps that he’s such an unparalleled talent in the field! We get just as excited as the fans with each of his covers, and this one is without a doubt one of his best!”
