“Red Sonja returns to Shadizar in hope of ending the wars that have destroyed every kingdom they’ve touched. But the end of one war is the cause of the next and how can she find the way out when every dead foe has someone to avenge them? This is the answer that the previous eighteen issues have been building up to,” Russell said in a press statement.

Issues #19 through #24 will chronicle Sonja’s return to her native land of Hyrkania. She will discover that a figure who has lurked in the background has made a major move.

Cyril, the orphaned son of Dragan the Magnificent, has taken the throne he feels belongs to him and is bent on avenging his father’s death. To prevent further catastrophic warfare, Sonja travels to Shadizar with a mission to kill Cyril herself. What she doesn’t know is what has happened through the course of the indispensable companion miniseries Killing Red Sonja, including all the allies and magical abilities Cyril has picked up in his journeys.

Red Sonja #19 will come out in September 2020. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issue with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of comiXology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
