Greetings True Believers! The Conan train keeps on rolling! I bring you a tale from The Savage Sword of Conan vol. 1. Conan and Red Sonja get mixed-up with a Sorcerer and a noblewoman and end up fighting thugs, demons and wenches. Enjoy!

So Conan is wandering around talking up the local women and walks into a crime in progress.


Enter Sonja.

Turns out the finger belongs to Costanno the Sorcerer, who was executed by the local king for "Nameless Obscene Rites" in the household of a local noblewoman. Conan is like "Screw all this magic shit, let's grab some brewskis."

Conan and Sonja fight their free and head over to the noblewoman's house to see what's up.

Conan Logic: Evil noblewoman > Undead Magic Douche.

Well, some people can't be saved from themselves. Why are Conan and Red Sonja so nonplussed? Because this type of shit happens every fucking day. For Conan fighting socerers like traffic jams for us. Just gotta roll with it. Sorry about the awkwardness of the scans. The book did not fit into my scanner well.

Always loved the Edward G. Robinson callback in this one. "Mother of Mitra--! Is this -- the end -- of Rikko--?"

And John Buscema drawing Red Sonja never hurts. :-P

Don't forget "The moving finger writhes-- and then-- moves on."

I suppose adding "and having writhed" would've been painting the lily.

I just noticed something. Everyone always call out Red Sonja for wearing nothing but a chainmail bikini into battle. But Conan just wears a loincloth and no one calls him out on it.

Because when he does wear armour, it's practical armour.

So they just left her to her doom after they recused her. Awesome. :D
