Red Sonja #4

Red Sonja #4 opens with Red Sonja and her people on the run, chased by the war chariots of the Zamoran Empire nipping on their heels. With the help of the Brothers of Misfortune, Sonja sends most of the caravan on while laying a trap for the chariots.

Notching yet another unlikely victory, Sonja's battle prowess only further angering Dragan The Magnificent who is far from pleased at learning the news of the latest defeat from those he expected to be easy pickings for his army.

The issue includes flashback to Sonja's training years before where she learned some valuable wisdom in that, despite her experiences to that date, she may not always be the strongest warrior and one thing will always serve her in battle more than strength (even the strength of a She-Devil).

There's a good mix of action, humor, and drama in the latest issue and some foreshadowing of a new tactic for Dragan whose man returns with a piece of valuable information for his warlord. Worth a look.
