Red Sonja #25

A song in the woods and the sound of battle break Red Sonja's solitary travels in the latest issue of Red Sonja from writers Amy Chu and Erik Burnham, and artist Pasquale Qualano. The She-Devil makes short work of a pack of thieves attacking a small traveling party, but when the dust clears only one survivor remains.

Despite the pair's philosophical differences, Sonja takes the job of seeing the last pilgrim to his destination. Running into more trouble while attempting to barter passage across the sea with pirates, Sonja discovers there is more to her charge than meets the eye as the power of his song is able to stop the bloodthirsty mercenaries in their path allowing Sonja to go to work.

Red Sonja #25 is an interesting opening issue to the new arc. There's obviously quite a bit about Sonja's traveling companion to be discovered. Where does the power of song (capable of making even Sonja shed a tear) come from? As their journey continues no doubt the She-Devil will get some answers. Worth a look.
