Notes The Red Sonja spirit in this story is contemporary, summoned from whatever afterlife she has been inhabiting for thousands of years. (That is only implied in this issue, but it is made clearer in the Spider-Man / Red Sonja miniseries, where Kulan Gath pulls Red Sonja's spirit from the past (when she was still alive) in order to prevent the contemporary Red Sonja from showing up.)

When Marvel lost the rights to use Conan, Red Sonja and other properties, the rights to Kulan Gath were reverted to the property owners. The character is now being used in Dynamite Entertainment's Red Sonja serves as the chief antagonist. As a result of this reversion, this issue does not appear in the collection Essential Marvel Team-Up Vol 1 4. However, it was reprinted for the first time in decades in the Spider-Man / Red Sonja miniseries collection.
