Ghita's World

This is a map of the world of Ghita of Alizarr, a Sword & Sorcery character created by Frank Thorne, debuting in Warren's 1984 #7. Thorne had worked on Marvel's Red Sonja, but Ghita is much racier fare. Eventually, Thorne got around to providing a map--and here it is, suitable for game usage:


Oh, and here's the text that accompanied the map to give the "flavor" of the strip:

There are times in b/w page where you can't really tell Ghita and Sonja apart.

I enjoyed the Ghits comics. But I could not help but think Thorne drew himself in as an old wizard a little too often.

The flavor strip sounds like lyrics from a heavy metal back in the way back. Map is very cool. I wish I could draw maps from that perspective. As for the comic, no nothing about it, but the map is cool.

Sexual confusion?

Trey said...

@Jack - I don't know. From the stories, that doesn't seem to be something she's particularly concerned out.

Jack said...

It makes it sound like she has gender dysmorphia, which I am pretty sure (wight unseen) isn't in the comic.

Trey said...

It does make it sound that way. I think they may mean: "confused about who she might have sex with yet."

That's a really nice map. Looks like it'd make a fun place to go adventuring.

Struggling with the specter of Khan-Dagon would probably fling anyone into the sapphic despond.

Trey said...

Ain't that the truth.

The small village named "Pini" is a dead giveaway as to the origins of Ghita...

Trey said...

Good point!
