    A bad start to series that spawned 80 issues, multiple spin-offs, and now a new volume (the new volume is pretty good too). It's a wonder how the series survived after this story. The art is good, but is pretty inconsistent. The story is nonsensical and I stopped caring. The publisher is shamelessly trying to duplicate the success Darkhorse had with its reboot of the Conan series. This comes a year after and imitates the art style as well as the opening story line - Conan goes to a half-mythical A bad start to series that spawned 80 issues, multiple spin-offs, and now a new volume (the new volume is pretty good too).

The publisher is shamelessly trying to duplicate the success Darkhorse had with its reboot of the Conan series. This comes a year after and imitates the art style as well as the opening story line - Conan goes to a half-mythical perfect society and trouble ensues. Here, Red Sonja happens along a member of a half-mythical society and brings his dead body to the gates. A bunch of stupid shit happens after that. Where the Conan story had an interesting background for the city and interesting characters and an intriguing story line, this story has none.

    The main character supports freedom and the right of the common people to live their own lives, not just sacrifice themselves and others for a corrupt figure. She is also a capable fighter, often victorious in battles that are stacked against her. While the character was created in the fantasy world of Conan the Barbarian, which would suggest a simplistic universe centered on battle, death and too-sexy, impractical armor, the story is more mature.

She is also a capable fighter, often victorious in battles that are stacked against her. While the character was created in the fantasy world of Conan the Barbarian, which would suggest a simplistic universe centered on battle, death and too-sexy, impractical armor, the story is more mature. Religion, race, the ruling class, slavery, self-sacrifice, as well as courage, dedication and battle strategy are all explored in this surprisingly enjoyable fantasy world. The cover gallery is quite spectacular too. Red Sonja saves a messenger from Gathia from his attackers. He dies on the way back to Gathia, so Sonja returns his message and his dead body to his home city. The citizens are weary of outsiders and the guards attack her for bearing bad news. The guards are no match for her, but the ogre she defeats weakens her, allowing her to be captured. Because of her prowess in battle she is sacrificed to the city's lord, the Celestial One who is viewed as a god. But her death is not the end. There is a plot against the lord of the city by a group that doesn't support the human sacrifices and slavery that have become the norm in the city, even though the same lord brought peace to the land. (view spoiler)[The priest Fa that carried out the sacrifice intentionally left Sonja alive. He wants her to kill the Celestial One and end his reign. She must first journey to a temple where her stab wound can be fully healed. One of the warriors assigned to join her turns out to be a spy for the Celestial One. She kills two of Sonja's companions before Sonja herself puts the traitor down. Sonja and Osin return to the Fa's camp where the Zeddas have joined the cause against their common enemy. While their main force attacks the castle head-on, Sonja is joined by Osin and Borg, the leader of the Zeddas, to infiltrate the castle, with the Celestial One as their target. They face armored guards, child demons and a giant snake that kills Borg. The final fight is against an armored Celestial One, who turns out to be a magically-enhanced Zedda. Sonja wins with Osin's help who dies at the end. Sonja regrets the war and destruction she has helped bring to the city, but is content that the people are now truly free. She wants to focus on killing other blind followers of the Celestial God. (hide spoiler)]

    Free comic! (actually a review of issue #0) Why not just buy porn? There is nothing to this comic except a barely concealed female body. And it's not even that well drawn. Her face changes so much between panels that the reader wouldn't be able to recognize her if it wasn't for the utterly bizarre costuming. I often wasn't sure what I was looking at, or what I was meant to be looking at. When she is kicking that person, are we meant to be looking at her vagina? Right.

Or with the ape-like men who are being killed off by the mostly naked lady? What about the other mostly naked lady outside?

    The good: 1. The stories were perfectly decent little sword & sorcery stories. 2. I really liked the art style. Reminded me of a mix of more modern comic art and old "Savage Sword of Conan" art. The bad: 1. Even though they *directly* addressed it, I can't (and have never been able to) get past the stupid outfit. Assuming that scale hasn't completely severed her nipples, they must be mangled, calloused things. And who knows if she's even wearing anything under the scale bottoms (I hope so with al The good: 1.

Assuming that scale hasn't completely severed her nipples, they must be mangled, calloused things. And who knows if she's even wearing anything under the scale bottoms (I hope so with all that horse riding, I mean, she's not Deadpool!) In their defense, that's often been a problem with Conan as well. Artists seem to not understand that Conan liked wearing armor for battle. 2. The creators claimed they were trying to avoid sexualizing her, but the majority of full length shots still depicted her in stupid Playboy-like stances and poses. And they drew her skin as flawless, when she should have a body that looks like a map of scars. Especially since she's practically naked. Also, someone involved seemed to think that Sonja is a REH creation. She is not. She is the creation of Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor Smith, back in '73. She's *inspired* by a couple of Howard's characters, but she is not one of his.

    It wasn't great, but it was fine. I wanted to get a feel for the character in another writer's hands before reading the Gail Simone stories, but the body of this book was about as illuminating as the cover. It's fine? I mean, you know what you're getting into with this one, and you will not be even kind of surprised. It's sexist, it's violent, it puts on philosophical airs and just whiffs the chance to do anything interesting or meaningful when the time comes. Ah, well. It wasn't great, but it was fine.

    Mostly blah. Lots of heads rolling. Decapitation seems to be the preferred way to kill people in this universe.

    I was actually inspired to read this because I saw the movie for the first time. There were a lot of different variations of Red Sonja but I really liked the art work in this one so I chose it. I really really loved this volume. It was simple and action packed and gorey. The story is one that's been a little over used but that just made it a simple read. The last story in the volume I could had done with out, it didn't really go with the rest too much and was set up a lot different than the rest I was actually inspired to read this because I saw the movie for the first time.

I also really liked that at the end there were just a bunch of pages of various Red Sonja art, It was interesting to see different artist's variations of her. I'm glad I finally discovered a fantastic red-headed heroin that isn't just a side character. She kicks so much ass

    Trash. I read this out of interest because I see a lot of cosplayers as Red Sonja. I just can't get my head around the fact that a hero would wear a tiny triangle around her privates and a chainmail bikini. It's disgusting and unlikely. Every frame that they don't show her whole body they at least slip in her breasts or butt to make up for the non-existent story. I suppose people don't read it for the story anyway. Trash. Trash.

    Red Sonja finds her self working with some shady characters that are not to be trusted. Together they invade a city that seems to perfect so it must be hiding something. its an intertaining story but kind of predictable, a couple of plot twist that don't make mush sence & don't realy have a good reason for happening.

    Not too bad start for this run of Red Sonja. I remember when this came out and I read it, I really liked this. Now this seems more so-so and art a bit clumsy. But then again, so it seems to be in Diamond comics all around. But at least there was a Sonja's nipple shot. Yay! Not too bad start for this run of Red Sonja.

    Red Sonja intercedes in a situation full of moral end ethics dilemmas, and faces a villain who makes a compelling case for his side. Oeming and Carey also try to address and explain the issue of Sonja's armour (or lack thereof)...

    Boring and generic, that is what I recall as I choose to donate this book. Sorry Sonja, your extra large female parts and skimpy armor can't sway me.

    I prefer the way the character is portrayed in this series over the anti-hero portrayal in the Gail Simon series. A solid sword and sorcery tale with great artwork.
