Robert E. Howard's She-Devil with a Sword, the classic sorcery heroine Red Sonja, made her comic book debut in 1973'2 Conan the Barbarian #23 by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith, before evolving into the archetypical example of the duality between femininity and fierceness that she is today. Join iconic creators Amy Chu, Gail Simone, Louise Simonson, Larry Hame and more, as they dissect Red Sonja's more than four-decade history and trailblazing impact on strong female characters in comics.
