#2: The Red Tail Saga
Sanzyn approaches Krella in her rooms at the inn with a pouch of gold, and an unbelievable story about a magical nectar, and how it drew a sorceress to her home. With her people enslaved, Sanzyn escaped so she could find help to free them. Krella is dubious, but when she samples the nectar herself, there is no denying its potent effects.
Krella the Red cuts an intimidating figure, but this issue is all about her world. The strangeness that lurks in the corners, and hidden in the shadows. Cross gives us just enough rope for us to grab hold, and he makes us want to follow the trail right along the Amazonian adventuress as she decides to aid a people who have been enslaved by ancient magics, and their own, carnal desires.
