RED SONJA ANNUAL #2 By Gage and Marcos! DIAMOND ORDERCODE: DEC083920
The second Red Sonja Annual is here! Presented by writer Christos Gage and veteran artist Pablo Marcos, Dynamite unveils “Here there be Dragons!”
Red Sonja is recruited by the wizard VERDIUS to act as his bodyguard on a quest to find the last nesting place of the dragons. These magnificent creatures were once plentiful, but have been hunted to near-extinction, with the massive Great Dragons lost forever, and the smaller ones nearly gone as well. Verdius wants to save those few that remain, and has just discovered where they gather to mate… as they travel, a rival wizard is battled and the fate of the magnificent beasts rests in Sonja’s hands!
