13 COVERS: A Spotlight on RED SONJA

The She-Devil With a Sword slices and dices her way into your heart…

Conan the Barbarian #24: Red Sonja’s first cover appearance, by Barry Windsor-Smith.

On Tuesday, we brought you the news that Marvel is planning its second Conan Epic Collection — this one featuring the debut of Red Sonja, by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. (Click here for the full rundown of the Conan the Barbarian Epic Collection: The Original Marvel Years — Hawks From the Sea.)

Now, we’ve done 13 COVERS saluting Marvel’s Conan before (click here) — but never 13 COVERS spotlighting the She-Devil With a Sword.

So dig these:

  1. Some good work on this list. Mary Wilshire’s and Mike Kaluta’s cover to Conan the King 28 was pretty sweet, too.

  2. It’s amazing that ANY Frank Thorne-drawn Red Sonja image was approved by the Comics Code Authority! 😉
