The new face of the ancient oath

In the midst of her controversy, Sonja’s vow of chastity has been reimagined, painting a different portrait than the one her fans are familiar with. Gone are the days when the Red Head’s pledge was seen as a prize for the winner during a fight.

Reflecting on her past, Sonja meets a young couple whose love leads her to question her own path as a warrior. Now it’s not just a challenge to those who desire her heart, but a personal introspection, a meditation on what it means to be a free woman in a world of swords and intrigue.

Creative team

Dan Panosian is at the helm of this renaissance, giving a modern take on the story. Sword and sorcery fans will find a fusion of classic and modern in Savage Red Sonja, where every push and every word reveals something more than a simple adventure.

Alessio Pettillo paints a world where the beauty and rawness of Hyboria comes to life, and shows us Sonja who defies not only her opponents but the rules of her time. It’s a journey that explores not just the priceless ruby, but the true value of a warrior’s voice.

A newly designed oath

“Savage Red Sonja” is not afraid to face the creative conflicts of the past. It looks at a future where Sonja has fallen out of favor with a controversial god and is her own challenge. This approach highlights the development of graphic storytellers who see Sonja as a soul searching for her own meaning and purpose, rather than as a prize for the best warrior.

What did Sonja sacrifice for the warrior’s way? What does freedom and love mean to someone who lives by the sword? These questions echo throughout the pages of this new saga.

Gail Simone’s modern version had already removed the Oath of Our Lady of the Sword and erased all traces of violence from her story. Today, “Savage Red Sonja” takes us a step further by embracing the complexity of the character without losing the identity that made her iconic.

Sonja, More than a Warrior: Reflections on Her Times

Red Sonja is not just a character, but a symbol created over time. Sonja, born out of a desire for Conan’s female counterpart, has become more than that. Over the years her image has been reinterpreted, sometimes in response to social currents, other times as a mirror of ideals of independence and female strength.
