From the bitter seed of a doomed rebellion in Argos comes a harvest of blood, with RED SONJA at its heart.

Red Sonja — serving in a mercenary company employed by a rogue Argossean prince — is sent on a last-ditch, desperate mission across the border into Shem. Her mission is more than it seems, as Sonja leads her mercenary allies into a quest for a deadly secret hidden within the walls of the city-state, Persemhia.

But others seek this mysterious prize as well, as the armies of Koth and Argos mass to crush Red Sonja’s ragtag band. It will take more than skill with a blade for any to survive this deadly season of war…

Written by Eric Trautmann (Vampirella, Action Comics) and illustrated by Walter Geovani (Vampirella) and Patrick Berkenkotter (Torch), “War Season” ushers in a new chapter of Red Sonja’s celebrated history.
