During the 1970's Marvel comics was booming with it's sword and sorcery titles. Conan the barbarian was the hotteset book at the time selling just as many copies as Spidey and Hulk.
Red Sonja was selling a fair amount of comics too. Enough to be noticed by market competitor DC comics...so in an effort to compete they hashed this one out and even used an artisit who worked for both companies doing freelance work. Let me see if anyone of you can tell me who that was? Anyway STARFIRE was no match for the Flaming haired one and lost her battle.
One thing though...I have to say she went down swinging!!!
