''Sha'' is a comic story by written by Pat Mills and drawn by Olivier Ladroit, originally published in ''Magazine/HeavyMetal''.

In fourteenth-century Europe, Lara is burned at the stake by the Inquisition for being a witch. In the twenty-second century, her reincarnation is awakened by the protector spirit of all witches, Sha, to hunt down the demons-in-human-flesh who previously killed her.

!!This comic provides examples of:

* BadPeopleAbuseAnimals: Weirdly played with. One of the five main villains, who is [[FriendToBugs obsessed with insects]], is seen petting a CuteKitten before casually feeding it to his arthropod friends while remarking that insects are the "superior species" on Earth. Of course, given WhatMeasureIsANonCute, this is probably a straight example.
* BurnTheWitch: The comic is all about the spirit of a young witch who was wrongfully burned at the stake in the fourteenth century awakening in her reincarnation in TheFuture to seek revenge against the KnightTemplar demons who killed her.
* FatBastard: The Duke who organized the witch hunt against Lara was obese and a VillainousGlutton.
* FiveBadBand: The five main villains are an exact match of this template:
** BigBad: The minister who sentenced Lara.
** TheDragon: The Duke who orchestrated the witch hunt.
** TheBrute: The monk who tortured and raped Lara.
** EvilGenius: The executioner who killed Lara.
** TheDarkChick: Dominique, the fellow witch who betrayed Lara.
* ReligionOfEvil: The Catholic Church is portrayed like this, since it was apparently run by demons posing as humans who used the Inquisition as a pretext to wipe out their enemies.
* ScarpiaUltimatum: The monk who interrogated Lara for her being a witch promised to spare her son's life in exchange for sex. After he had his way with her, [[ILied he killed the boy anyway]].
* SecondaryCharacterTitle: The main character is a witch named Lara; Sha is the protector deity of witches who makes Lara remember her past life.
* VanityIsFeminine: The soul of a witch who was burned at the stake by the Inquisition in the 14th century returns in the 22nd century to exact revenge on the five reincarnated demons responsible for killing her in their past lives. While the four men are all killed one by one, the woman who betrayed her is instead [[CruelMercy left alive with a debilitating disease that will slowly take away her beauty from her]].
