Publisher Description.  After landing in jail following a night of drunken revelry, Red Sonja hears an outlandish story from a fellow inmate.  Deep in the mountains lies a dead city in a valley with no name.  Abandoned and forgotten, its fields and streets are littered with the bones of two armies, all destroyed by a curse from a warlock who has long since vanished, along with his vast treasure — untold riches just waiting to be taken.

At least that is the legend.  But Sonja’s cellmate Morgo has more than a diverting tale — he’s also got a map that says this legend could well be reality.  All they need to do is break out of lockup and hit the road — which may be easier said than done!

Crafted by legendary writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Simon Dark) and rising art star Alessandro Amoruso, Red Sonja: Empire of the Damned #1 delivers monsters, magic, and mayhem in equal measure — all wrapped up in sumptuous covers from Joshua Middleton, Joseph Michael Linsner, John Tyler Christopher, and cosplay by Rachel Hollon.
