Red Sonja: Black, White, Red #4

Three more black and white tales of Red Sonja are collected in Red Sonja: Black, White, Red #4. The bandit hordes of Turan invade in "The Iron Queen" only to be turned back by an old queen who takes up the sword for the first time in years remembering the warrior she once was. Sonja travels through a cold wasteland in "Cold Monger" where a king's magic steals the warmth and fire from his subjects.

The best of the three tales, "The Iron Maiden," features some great humor (almost all of it at Sonja's expense) and some of my favorite art of the series so far. A wounded Red Sonja is found and tended to in the woods by a local woman, although the wounded She-Devil with a Sword struggles to return the favor when Onelia attempts to save her village from traders get her into trouble.
