Red Sonja #58
Red Sonja #58 Fabiano Neves cover
Written by Eric Trautmann, art by Walter Geovani, covers by Fabiano Neves and Walter Geovani.

Red Sonja’s adventure in Khorshemish — the opulant capital of Koth — continues. Political and family intrigues have placed the She-Devil With A Sword between rival noble families, all intent on seizing the throne of Koth. On one side, the disgraced family of her slain enemy — Cavvalus of Koth — plots Sonja’s destruction. On the other, Strabonus, Prince of the realm, and quite possibly insane. Amidst assassins, alchemists, and royal intrigue, Sonja discovers that not all wars are fought with swords.

Queen Sonja #17

Written by Arvid Nelson, art by Chris Bolson, covers by Fabiano Neves and Carlos Rafael.

Thulsa Doom rises from the hellish depths to smash Sonja’s palace. Normally Sonja would be up to the challenge, but in her weakened state she’ll be lucky just to escape with all her limbs attached. Either way, Doom owes a heavy debt to his god Set for his new-found power. Set didn’t revive Thulsa out of charity; it needs the undead sorcerer to carry out a horrific rite that can only be performed once every thousand years. The results of this dark ritual? Only Set knows the full truth.

Red Sonja: Revenge of the Gods #1
Red Sonja: Revenge of the Gods #1
Written by Luke Lieberman, art by Carlos Rafael covers by Lucio Parrillo

Defeat is eating away at the trickster god Loki. He hates being banished to the barbaric, backward lands of Hyboria. He hates the food, the wine, the women and he hates Red Sonja most of all for putting him in the position. He dreams of revenge, and putting this backwater land under his heel. Sometimes dreams come true.

Roots – explores a time before Sonja was a queen, before she was a legend, a time when she was just a girl lost in a big brutal world. An orphan whose parents were butchered in front of her, and whose innocence was stolen. A girl with something to prove, running from the past into the great unknown.
