What do you do when the war is over and your comrades are dead on the battlefield?

From wild child, to thief, to warrior – the metamorphosis is nearly complete as Sonja and Kain confront Lord Fellon in his lair. A suicide mission, but they must atone for their sins. And what of Jubal, their master, where do his loyalties lay? A thrilling episode that strikes at the heart of Red Sonja’s psyche!

Red Sonja: Deluge
Written by Dan Brereton, art by Chris Bolson, covers by Dan Brereton and Chris Bolson.

A violent storm floods the lonely countryside, and Sonja takes shelter in a cramped Inn. After a deadly altercation with the town bully, Sonja vows to keep out of the locals’ power struggles. But when the dead man’s brothers appear, all Hell breaks loose indoors as Mother Nature rages around them, threatening to awaken a long buried horror in the earth.

Also featuring reprints of classic Sonja material!
