No chainmail bikini


I am quite curious to see how this turns out.
It’s good to have a sword & sorcery heroine that’s not wearing a chainmail bikini.

  1. I am completely on board with the “chain mail bikinis are ridiculous fantasies for Playboy and Penthouse readers fourteen years old,” idea, and the illustration looks impressively like my concept of Valeria. I rate her a close third to REH’s other sword women, Sonya of Rogatino (the Russian girl who fought at Vienna, not the Marvel Comics version) and Dark Agnes. I hope that character Ortho, mentioned by Valeria in “Red Nails,”(uncouth, no doubt) who wanted to make her his mistress, gets his comeuppance in AGE OF CONAN.


    • I’m a huge fan of Dark Agnes, and I hope all the Howard ladies get a chance to shine, sooner or later.
      And it would be nice to see the real Sonya get her own show/comic/whatever.
