Red Sonja Valentine's Special

A witch's separate encounters with both Red Sonja and Kulan Gath leads the misadventures of the 2021 Red Sonja Valentine's Special. The first encounter, Sonja attempting to take the witch's head ends up poorly for the She-Devil with a Sword as she leaves with a head (just the one that was connected to the witch's body). It's an interesting stand-off that allows Sonja to keep to the letter of her word.

Had Sonja killed the witch the rest of the adventure would have never taken place as she is later accosted by Kulan Gath who threatens to kill the witch until she tells him she can use magic to find his greatest enemy. What she doesn't reveal is the method on how he will find her, as her love spell makes him fall hopelessly in love with Red Sonja to the complete surprise and dismay of the Hyrkanian warrior who spends the rest of the issue struggling to get away from the lovesick fool.

The Red Sonja Valentine's Special offers some goofy fun, well-suited to a one-shot (even if it never quite finishes the story) with some fun nuggets such as Red Sonja's guide to dating.
