This thread makes me wonder if we will see the MTU story mentioned above reprinted in "Essential Marvel Team Up" when it gets to the CC/JB run. I fear we won't see it, taking into account the rights issues...

Now I wish someone with the $$$ would ask for a She-Hulk/Red Sonja commission. That would be a classic meeting!

All that flashing green and red... They could really stop traffic!

Maybe as a Christmas themed sketch...?

So, who does hold the © on Sonja these days?

*************

JB-

D.E. (Dynamic Entertainment?) is currently publishing the adventures of Ms. Sonja these days.  Maybe they'd be able to tell you.

According to the latest comics, the character of Red Sonja is coprighted "Red Sonja llc."

They're currently doing a Spider-Man/Red Sonja mini, so seeing it in the Essential might be possible.

That's one of the many things wrong with Marvel today, really; If they're not crapping over character's histories and other creators' work (ie, JMS' Spider-Man crap), then they're dragging out stuff that could be done in one or two issues into 4 to 6 issues (ie, much of Bendis' work) or writing characters completely out of character (most of Civil War, especially anything written by Jenkins).

I wish that "Marvel today" was completely accurate, but unfortunately this is nothing new. Recall my cover for MARVEL PREVIEW, in which I had She-Hulk scoffing at the current regeim at Marvel getting a Summer Crossover Event out of "Atlantis Attacks" -- something Stan and Jack had handeled (better) in a single FF Annual (the first).

Some, I suppose, might even suggest this goes all the way back to the "expanded" version of the FF/Spider-Man tussle that appeared in the first Spider-Man Annual.

sorry for the sidetrack here.

I find it funny that "Marvel" "despises" Byrne, yet they keep dragging out stuff he's worked on in one form or fashion.

oh, and the cover in question:

The PNG version is even more fun!

JB, what do imagine Sonja's bikini is made out of? Coins? It hasn't looked
like chainmail for a very long time...

I wonder, can She-Hulk tan, and if so, what would it look like?

Red Sonja's costume looks like scale-mail to me.

To JB:

Your cover was prophetic. I well remember FF Annual #1, and can call up
specific panels in my mind (okay, it helps that I was a kid when it first
came out). I'd mercifully forgotten all about "Atlantis Attacks" until your
mention of it. Like just about every other "event" running through
multiple issues, it was a waste of time and money. "Crisis" and "Secret
Wars" have much to answer for. I think it would be nice if every writer
and artist working in the field today had to spend a couple of years doing
six or eight page, complete in one issue stories. You know, the kind
Kubert, Eisner, Kirby, the EC boys and so forth cut their teeth on.

I agree, Robert!

Plus, it would be nice to be able to plot a year or so ahead, as Chris and I used to on X-MEN, or I used to on FF or ALPHA FLIGHT, without fearing that editorial will hand down a crossover "event" and gut my stories (as happened on BLOOD OF THE DEMON).

I agree completely and whole-heartedly.

Unfortunately, even *that* doesn't guarantee anything.
Case in point: Mark Millar (who got his foot in the door co-writing with
Grant Morrison) got his big break writing Superman Adventures at DC.
Based on the cartoon, and done in one. Wrote the title for a couple or
several years, including one issue that was 22 separate one-page stories.
Now he is one of the fore-most "writing for the trades" authors.

He said in an interview that he thought one of the reasons the British
writers seem to be able to pack so much into stories is that they grew up
with &/or started writing for the British comics, that feature 6-8 page
stories.

I think only one part of the equation is getting the creatives in to the 6-8
page or "done in one" metality.
The other is to get the executive running the companies to mandate the
tighter pacing and less cross-overs.

And then stick to it.

Nice commission, JB!! Would love to see a Red Sonja mini-series drawn
by you.
