It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the passing of Frank Thorne. No creator played a more prominent role in shaping and defining #RedSonja as we know and love her today. His indelible artwork was a perfect match for the character and influences many to this day.
Frank’s art and stories will always be of paramount importance to Sonja’s legacy, with recent creators like Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner,Jim Balent, and Alessandro Miracolo directly referencing his influence on their work, among others.We’re still internally carefully discussing how we’d like to commemorate Frank in different ways.For those interested in reading Frank’s Red Sonja, his tales can be found in the Adventures of Red Sonja reprints.

Rest in Peace, Frank Thorne, the quintessential Red Sonja artist whose style has been such a major influence on my own artwork. Mr. Thorne and his wife, Marilyn, both passed away on Sunday, and our thoughts go out to their family. l’ll always remember the one-day art class I took that he taught at a 1988 convention, and you can read all about it at this SWC blog Post from 2014. Thanks for the lesson, Mr. Thorne, and for your incredible artwork!
