Gail Simone (BATGIRL, BIRDS OF PREY) gives the iconic fantasy heroine a fresh new attitude! Red Sonja, the She- Devil with a Sword, intends to pay back a blood debt owed to the one man who has gained her respect… even if it means leading a doomed army to their certain deaths! Who is Dark Annisia, and how has this fearsome warrior accomplished what no god nor demon has been able to do: force Sonja to her knees in surrender? An epic tale of blood, lust, and vengeance, “Queen of Plagues” takes Red Sonja from the depths of her own grave to the heights of battlefield glory.
