REVIEW IN ENGLISH
This chapter has three stories, the first places Red Sonja in Khitai when he must follow her king's orders and conquer a new region, which is of no strategic importance, is only a whim. The worst thing is that the army assigned to her are all 12-year-old children, which is a cruel tradition in Khitai.
The second story includes Cyril, the secret son of Phatmos and Oracon, believed to be the son of Dragan, who is self-exiled from Shadizar preparing his revenge against Red Sonja. This ties in directly with the Killing Red Sonja comic.
The first two stories are related to each other because they shows the loss of innocence in a child.
The third story serves as the final analogy in explaining the "Idra" festival in Khitai, which has two versions of the death of the ancient king's daughter, a fiction one and the real one involving sexual abuse.
In this episode, Mark Russel and Bob Q outdo themselves, the best installment in this new story arc.
