Red Sonja: Black, White, Red #6

While these anthologies can be a bit hit-and-miss, I actually enjoyed all three of the black and white (and of course red) Red Sonja tales presented here. Red Sonja becomes increasingly agitated in my favorite of the three stories, "Morgona the Crimson," when she learns someone is profiting off her likeness and claiming payment for her heroic deeds.

In "The Daring Rescue of Crown Prince Maximilian (Beloved of All The Peoples)," Red Sonja is hired by emissaries from the Kingdom of Levkoy to rescue their captured prince (who turns out to not be exactly what our hero was expecting). And following a fortune told, Red Sonja journeys to battle a giant who (along with her arrogance) was said be her demise in the appropriately titled "The Giant."
