The Nemedian Chronicles
Queen Sonja showcases Red Sonja, another member of the Conan universe. The character is loosely based on Red Sonya of Rogatino in Robert E. Howard's short story "The Shadow of the Vulture," first published in 1934. The character made her comic book debut in 1973, Conan the Barbarian #23. She has become a prototype for the muscle-bound, scantily-clad fantasy heroine. Comic Buyers Guide named her the sexiest woman in comics. The publisher has rated this series T+ - for older teens.
