The Invincible Red Sonja #3

The theft of the royal crown, which threatens the upcoming wedding of Princess Zaria, alters Red Sonja's mission in Erkhara. Rather than remain by the side of the princess, Sonja sets off in search of the thief known to be able to fence such an item. Coincidentally, the thief Bahira Yakootah is also the one who has put a price on Sonja's head.

Most of the action from The Invincible Red Sonja #3 comes from the bar brawl where Sonja litters the floor with thieves and cutthroats while searching for the whereabouts of Bahira Yakootah. Tuma arrives late to offers some assistance, but even without his help Sonja cuts a bloody swath through the adversaries.

In terms of the larger story, we do not see the face of the masked figure who stole the crown (suggesting it to be a character already introduced in the story), but we do see it traded to Bahira Yakootah in a deadly bargain as someone is obviously playing a larger game in hopes of changing the power structure of the region.
