  1. Oh interesting--I've scrolled down, and if I understand, you have multiple artists and one subject--I like the tough, red-headed warrior woman, and it's fascinating the different take people have on it.

  2. Hello. I look for a comic book that impressed me when i was a child. In my memory it dealt with a red-headed half-naked medieval warrior who was tied then she is rescued by a warrior guy (the main character i think). So i suppose it was a Conan comic book with Red Sonja. The drawing and colors style was very very realistic and extensively worked, at a level i can compare it to Paolo Serpieri's Druuna. It has been published before the mid-90s, not later. As I suppose you have read every Red Sonja comic, even the Conan's ones she appears in, I wanted to know if you can recall such comic.

  3. I don't know it myself, but maybe one of the other members here does.

  4. Thanks.

    I found in the end.
    It wasn't Conan and Sonja in fact but Storm, a comic drawn by Don Lawrence. The book I'm looking for is surely the 9th: A Creeping Death.

    I really thought it was Sonja. Storm isn't linked in any way to Sonja and Conan but my mistake is understandable since they are very close visually. We can even clearly say Storm is a visual plagiarism of Conan and Sonja. The heroin is even named Red Hair lol!! But I guess it is still an excellent comic book.

    I'm glad my research made me discover Red Sonja and strangely she fits so well with my memories! (though it wasn't her, but it is explained by the plagiarism). I felt in love with this character.
