Red Sonja Volume 1: Queen Of Plagues - Jenny Frison, Walter Geovanni, Gail Simone

If you want to read about kick ass women who crush their enemies here ya go.  I tended to avoid barbarian stories, they seemed to be men and women who are heavily thewed, in skimpy costumes, who's main goal in life is to drink deep and slay their enemies.  Though at least they were about equally as naked, so they had that over most hero comics.  Gail Simone may have just converted me and I want to read more of her Red Sonja.
