Red Sonja Holiday Special

The 2021 Red Sonja Holiday Special offers a pair of mostly forgettable stories set in the cold of winter for readers that take place outside of Sonja's current timeline.

After being cursed by a dying wizard, Red Sonja finds herself haunted by a ghost in "Sonja's Carol" forcing the She-Devil with a Sword to look back at her recent choices and how continuing to kill for Draken will poison her future.

In "The Dance of Fire" Sonja sets out after a pair of thieves and killers known as the Gallows Brothers only to stumble across an odd ritual in the woods as a wizard forces Sonja to dance around a fire with the other maidens, offering their lives to the gods for a plentiful harvest. Despite forcing Sonja to dance all night, things don't turn out as the wizard had hoped.
