Current CONAN and RED SONJA comics

Post by wolframbane » Fri Oct 30, 2009 4:32 am

Are the current Red Sonja comics published by Dynamite Entertainment considered a continuation of the original Marvel series? Was the recent Red Sonja/Spider-Man crossover canon, and did it reference their original team-up in Marvel Team-Up #79? There was another recent crossover with Claw the Unconquered, who is a DC character from the world of Pytharia. Was this story canon?

I believe the Conan comics from Dark Horse Comics are ot a continuation of the Marvel series. The series is apparently a reboot of Conan, expanding only from the stories written by creator Robert E. howard, rather than any later pastiche writers.

If I remember correctly, we considered Spider-Man/Red Sonja to be canon, as it's basically a sequel to Marvel Team-Up #79, but the rest of the Dynamite Entertainment stuff is non-canon to us (like the Dark Horse Conan, it's also basically a reboot...). I'm pretty sure the Kulan Gath and Thulsa Doom that appear in the Red Sonja stuff over at Dynamite also is a reboot.
Keeping track of Bendis References since 2001!
