Swords of Cerebus vol. 3, by Dave Sim, Aardvark Vanaheim Inc, 1981, a collection of Cerebus the Aardvark #s 9-12 originally from 1979, plus the backup story “What Happened Between Issues 20 and 21” inked by Gene Day.

Cerebus parodied many well-known sword & sorcery characters.  Here Red Sophia doesn’t mind the snow, and neither does Cerebus despite his lack of pants.

The blend of gritty heroic fantasy and satire made Cerebus similar to some of our D&D games.
