Red Sonja Omnibus Volume 4 Trade Paperback
Red Sonja Omnibus Volume 4
Red Sonja, the She-Devil with A Sword, must survive an epic journey through three kingdoms, each one a roiling snakepit of old grudges, ancient magic, and arcane science! The unflinching heroine fights to protect her new friends from harm when they fall prey to the scheming witch Azenathi. Seeking the cursed Horn of Negal as ransom, Red Sonja charges headlong into the lair of her greatest adversary yet: a deadly doppelganger who shares her form, mirrors her martial skill, and knows no mercy! This volume collects issue #51-66 and features a complete cover gallery.

Ever since she took the throne of Sogoria, Sonja’s journey has been leading to something greater still. Her small kingdom threw off the shackles of an empire only to see terrorism, revolt, and finally the brutality of Thulsa Doom. Starved, shocked, and near desperation, Sonja’s people now openly revolt against her rule. She turns to the only wealthy Baron to levy taxes and feed the people, but he has a better idea — attack the empire! Open assault on the Emoran Empire is suicide, but to Sonja war is a form of art. Through the skillful use of deception, assassination, and manipulation, she plunges the fiefdoms of Emora into confusion and chaos, while feeding her tiny kingdom off Emoran crops. This is only the first act, her real designs are on the crown itself, and the reformation of the corrupt Empire, with her atop the throne as Empress Sonja!

Collection Features:
• Issues 21–25 of the hit series by Luke Lieberman and Fritz Casas.
• All of the beautiful covers by artists Lucio Parrillo, Jonathan Lau, Adriano Batista, Igor Vitorino and Chasen Grieshop.
