Red Sonja #57 Fabiano Neves cover
Written by Eric Trautmann, art by Walter Geovani, covers by Fabiano Neves and Walter Geovani.

Red Sonja’s wanderings have brought her to Koth and a gathering blood feud amongst that kingdom’s ruling families. With deception lurking in every shadow, and the fate of a nation at stake, what better place is there for a sword for hire?

Queen Sonja #16
Queen Sonja #16 Fabiano Neves cover
Written by Arvid Nelson, art by Chris Bolson, covers by Fabiano Neves and Bolson.

Being a queen sucks. Sonja knows that very well by now, and she’s getting tired of holding her kingdom together. But all her problems will seem like welcome distractions compared to what she’s about to face. Doom’s evil snake-god, Set, is bringing him back from the grave so Doom can have vengeance on Sonja. But Set has his own hidden agenda…

Red Sonja and her men find danger and intrigue in Persemhia—a city-state of Shem uncomfortably close to several hostile borders, ruled by a dying king. The armies of Argos and Koth are on the march, Stygians lurk in the city’s dark cornes, and the hordes of vicious mercenary Cavvalus are in hot pursuit… a perfect place for Sonja and her mercenaries to earn their pay.
