Legendary comic book writer Gail Simone recently visited Sideshow HQ and got a first look at a project that’s very close to rer heart – our new Red Sonja Premium Format™ Figure!

Gail is a long time friend and member of our Sideshow family, who took the time to meet some of our interpretations of just a few of the characters she has written over the years, including Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, Wonder Woman, and Conan!

But while she was here, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to show her the prototype of our new Red Sonja

As fans of Gail’s work, it was amazing for us to share this moment with a creator who’s vision for the character played a big inspiration in our design process.

We asked Gail for feedback and her thoughts about the new piece, and got this incredible response:

I don’t know how they do it. I don’t know if it’s black magic or future science or what. But no one, NO ONE, captures the sheer charisma and power of Red Sonja like these odd wizard artisans. Sideshow Collectibles, I give you the She-Devil salute.” – Gail Simone

We are honored by this glowing praise, and incredibly excited to finally unveil the new Red Sonja Premium Format™ Figure at San Diego Comic-Con.

Wizard Artisans…we like the sound of that…

RSVP for the Red Sonja Premium Format™ Figure HERE, and visit us at booth #1929 at SDCC for your first up close look at the She-Devil in the flesh!
