The bartender has a friend who is studying Hyborian history at Columbia. At the university she sees a picture of Kulan Gath who in this world is known as Hank Gault. Gault owns most of the city and supports the Hyborian department at the university. There is a fundraising dinner tonight and she arranges for Max and Sonja to attend.

The story is moving along nicely. Sonja is a quick learner and already speaks some English and can drive a motorcycle. She has friends who speak her language and she is confronting Gath. Transporting her to the modern era is turning out to be a great idea. Waiting for the confrontation with her old nemesis in next issue.
