Red Sonja #12

The origin tale of Sitha, and her time with Red Sonja, comes to an end with Red Sonja #12 which starts with Sonja on the hunt for the stolen child and her confrontation with the Daughters of Fire who plan to rip the power of Xamul from the child and claim it as their own. The issue works as both a rescue and one final partnership between the pair as Sitha helps Sonja defeat the High Priestess once she gains Xamul's power.

Following the battle, the issue ends with a prolonged epilogue filling in a bit of the details of Sitha's life post-Sonja (without getting into specifics about any adventures she may have had). Sonja and Sitha was an interesting pairing, and while it was destined to be short, I am sorry to see it come to an end, especially in an issue we don't see much interaction between them (although Dynamite is already exploring Sitha's further adventures in other comics).
