Red Sonja #12 - Frank Brunner cover

Frank Brunner

Red Sonja v1 #12, 1978 - Frank Brunner's exceptional cover depicts Red Sonja in the aftermath of a battle, poised to take on the next challenger. A second enlarged portrait fills the space behind her, the magenta color emphasizing her fury and savagery. Despite the busy masthead, the composition stands on its own due to the clear contrast between foreground and background. Brunner would draw several covers for the series, but none more impactful. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema and Joe Rubenstein. This is number 1 of 3 Red Sonja issues with Brunner art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Brunner or Red Sonja issues.
