The dark angel Ragniel has won. Red Sonja flees for her life with the mortally wounded Nissa over her shoulder. Sara Pezzini finds the Witchblade is useless against Ragniel and his zealots have kidnapped her daughter. Drowning in desperation, Sara dives deep within the memories of the Witchblade in hopes of finding the sinful angel’s weakness and comes to a single, undeniable conclusion. Her only chance of saving her daughter and mankind is for Red Sonja to become the bearer of the Witchblade.

The final, bloody showdown over the cursed Horn of Nergal is at hand! To stand fast against an army of Stygian assassins, and the sinister machinations of the Priestess Azanathi, will require all of Red Sonja’s considerable skill. But is the She-Devil’s martial prowess enough to win the day, and perhaps, a measure of redemption, or will the Horn’s curse cost Sonja everything?

Queen Sonja #28 Review

Posted in Comics, Reviews on April 11, 2012 by nemedian bard

Queen Sonja #28 is reviewed by Terry Verticchio on cxPulp.

Queen Sonja #28

“To see Sonja struggle with such a unique adversary, one who isn’t prepared to meet her face to face with a sword like she’s used to, fills this book with considerable drama. Sonja so wants to return to her old life as a wandering barbarian, but even she knows those days are long behind her now.”
– Terry Verticchio, cxPulp

Facing a mythical monster as old as the universe, Red Sonja is joined in battle by the Witchblade bearer of her time, Nissa. But the battle soon takes a morbid turn when the depraved creature resurrects someone from Sonja’s past. Someone whose mere presence brings the She-Devil to her knees. In modern day New York City, Sara Pezzini continues to investigate the bloodcurdling slaughter of a Catholic Priest. Is the gruesome murder a rite of passage for a clandestine cult, or something far more sinister?
