Ha, I could totally see her doing that! Sonja’s well used to brothels and harlots ... hell, towards the end of the first Dynamite run, she went undercover in a brothel disguised as a whore - her costume was basically a jewelled head dress plus her usual outfit!

^^^haha!!!

Yeah, they missed out on a funny scene or two not using that idea.
So, evil Sonja clone, is the theory, eh?

Definitely a clone and the fact she isn’t trying to tear out Gath’s throat means she’s probably on his side

Mind you, the Sonja and Wallace who went through hell could be the clones, for all we know...

I smell a Sonja vs Sonja battle coming up. Won’t be the first time that’s happened.

Apparently it was a late addition ... co-writer Erik Burnham’s idea.

This issue was BADASS, kicking off (no pun intended) with Sonja booting a guy in the face and later you’ve got that clone fight and even a Star Wars tribute leading to Sonja bursting out of heavy chains. Apparently she was intended to be bound with loose ropes but Carlos Gomez LOVES drawing Sonja pulling off feats of strength and it was his idea to upgrade to steel chains. The scene with Gath persuading the clone to join him was really effective too.

Fantastic issue all round but predictably it was completely overlooked in the excitement surrounding Gail Simone’s Sonja/ Tarzan crossover.

TBH i havent even glanced at that crossover.

I’m in agreement that this issue was good, though. Clone Sonja being wooed by Gath made me sad for her. The chains were -much- more effective at getting across Sonja’s badassery than mere ropes would have been.

And how in TF could a Sonja/Sonja fight -not- have been a first draft idea?!?

Apparently Amy intended the teo clones to remain behind in Cali and die as soon as Sonja amd Wallace went through the portal ... but Erik saw an evil Sonja as a great opportunity. He hinted in his commentary that she might not be done for good...

Her coming back would be cool. See how she turns out after time on her own, not beholden to Gath.

The next storyline sounds like an interesting change of pace set n Hyboria with no Gath.

That chains panel was fucking sick though. There’s doubt over its validity but I couldn’t see even Cap or Conan snapping those things. Proper superhuman feat

If a mere ginger wench could snap those chains, two manly men such as Cap and Conan surely could as well!!!! ;)

You said the next story line’s about Sonja’s sword, right? Thst -will- be a nice change.
Enough Gath.

For a story that ran on a little too long, and had its ups and downs, it came through w. a satisfying ending.
I especially liked the epilogue, as it might be what we were hoping for a couple of posts back.
