Unbreakable Red Sonja #1

After the successful pairing of Red Sonja with Sitha, which has now concluded, Dynamite Entertainment looks for new ways to reexamine such pairings. The first issue of Unbreakable Red Sonja from Jim Zub and Giovanni Valletta pairs the She-Devil with a Sword with a fiery young woman, in this instance a thief who has stolen from the drunken warrior. In a twist, the girl is... Red Sonja?

One issue in, it's a bit unclear if this is a younger version of Sonja or simply a talent red-headed thief having taken the name. In either case, the story offers a few different paths to take with the issue ending in the second Sonja revealing her name. We also get a priestess and her soldiers breaking into a sealed tomb which, as yet, has not been linked to the events of the Sonjas (but may eventually explain what has happened).
