DescriptionFrank Thorne Savage Sword of Conan #29 Story Page 15 Red Sonja Original Art (Marvel, 1978). Five times the Red Sonja! This story is a bit of comic industry history. In the 1970's Frank Thorne developed a persona known as "The Wizard", which he used to judge Red Sonja look-alike cosplay contests at comic book conventions. This developed into a bit of an act known as "The Wizard and Red Sonja Show". This last page of the comic story of the same name features all five of the real-life Red Sonja cosplayers who were part of this act. In the top panel, from left to right, they are: Linda Behrle, Angelique Trouvere, Dianne De Kelb, Wendy Snow, and Wendy Pini. Yes, that Wendy Pini... aka "Elf Mom", creator/artist/publisher of Elfquest! Pini even gets the last panel (and the last word) of this tale. This page, overflowing as it is with Red Sonjas, was created twice-up scale to contain them all, in ink and ink wash over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 19". In Excellent condition. Also included are printouts of the five-page text/photo feature that preceded this story in the magazine and gave further background on "The Wizard and Red Sonja Show" itself.
