So a friend pointed this out to me in a comic book shop the other day cause she knows I like to play Bikini Amour Battle Damage Bingo. Didn’t think to write down the name however ^^; and also couldn’t look inside the comic because it was sealed.

The title is “Conan Red Sonja” (preview on Google Books) and while one could make the argument that Conan is also wearing impractical attire for fighting battles, I feel that the book maintains a kind of double standard in the presentation of the two characters.

Specifically that Red Sonja regularly gets to be slightly more active, as an excuse to pose her oddly and to try to balance out that she’s posing for the titillation of the audience while Conan is… being Conan.
