Rating: TEEN+
“Know also, O prince, that in the selfsame days that the Cimmerian did stalk the Hyborian Kingdoms, one of the few swords worthy to cross with his was that of Red Sonja, warrior-woman out of majestic Hyrkania. Forced to flee her homeland because she spurned the advances of a king and slew him instead, she rode west across the Turanian steppes and into the shadowed mists of legendry.

Know this, reader of these texts – Red Sonja has perished! Fallen in battle with the vile sorcerer Kulan Gath, Sonja gave her life to save all of Hyboria.

For a time, the red-maned warrior did journey through Hades at the side of the boatsman Charon. Here, she did learn the truth of her own creation at the hands of the false Goddess Scathach.

Twenty winters have passed since last Sonja walked the land. However, now that she has
returned, her new incarnation has yet to learn the truth of her existence, or the reason for her miraculous rebirth.” — The Nemedian Chronicles

Everything you knew about Red Sonja  and her world was forever changed when the She-Devil battled Kulan Gath to the death! Now, following her trip to Hades, the spirit of the She-Devil is reborn, though the world around her has forever changed! A perfect jumping on point for new readers, as well as an incredible continuation to the readers that have been there since issue #0! Written by Brian (Ms. Marvel) Reed with art by Walter (SAVAGE TALES) Geovani and reprinting issues 35-40 for the very first time. Also includes a
complete cover gallery.
