Red Sonja, the “She-Devil with a Sword”, is a high fantasy sword and sorcery heroine created by Robert E. Howard and adapted for comics by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She first appeared in Conan the Barbarian #23 (Marvel Comics) in 1973. Red Sonja has become the archetypical example of the fantasy figure of a fierce and stunningly beautiful female barbarian. The character now appears monthly in her own series, as well as a series of mini-series and one-shots, all published by Dynamite Entertainment.

These are classic tales of Red Sonja, from an all-star creative cast, re-mastered for today.” Said, Editor Joseph Rybandt.
