    Spider-Man und Red Sonja: Zwei meiner Lieblingshelden, die eigentlich nie zueinander finden können; der eine ein Wandkletterer und Netzschwinger im heutigen New York, die andere eine schwertschwingende Barbarin aus vorgeschichtlicher Zeit.

Oemigs Story hat mich leider überhaupt nicht überzeugen können und schrammt knapp an der 1-Sterne-Bewertung vorbei. Ein paar coole Sprüche von Spidey können nicht über eine weniger als halbgare, absurde Story hinweg täuschen. Da hilft es auch nicht (sondern schadet noch zusätzlich), wenn Oemig auch noch Venom mit ins Boot zerrt.

    It wasn't totally awful, but it wasn't very good either. Red Sonja reminded me of a b-list Wonder Woman rip-off. It wasn't totally awful, but it wasn't very good either. Red Sonja reminded me of a b-list Wonder Woman rip-off.

    Certainly an innovative pair-up. With Peter Parker dating another red head, the coupling proves to be quite...plausible (the old 'spirit of one person inhabits the body of another person' trick). The dialogue is cheesy in (most) parts but the writers do a neat job of incorporating some of Spider-Man's most notable allies and enemies. Did I mention cheesy though? Still, we are talking about a woman warrior in chain mail bikini - one tends to feel generous when that's the pay off! :-) Certainly an innovative pair-up.

    Included at the tail end is an old Claremont/Byrne Spider-Man and Red Sonja team-up. In 17 pages they have fun. In the course of 5 issues and in excess of 100 pages Oeming and Rubi take fun, whack it on the back of the head, fill it full of embalming fluid, and put it on parade. What a gross waste of time. The Michael Turner covers sure are nice to look at though.

Também pudera, eles surgiram é proliferaram em uma época em que a imagem, ou seja, os bons desenhos eram tudo em uma história em quadrinhos e os roteiros eram deixados de lado. Neste encontro entre Homem-Aranha e Sonja os heróis enfrentam o feiticeiro Kulan Gath e o Venom. Gath possui dois arcos de histórias sensacionais em que os Vingadores e o X-Men (e toda Nova York) retornam aos tempos medievais/hiborianos de Sonja e Conan, dando às histórias um senso de maravilhamento único. O roteiro de Michael Avon Oeming é competente e cumpre o que promete, da mesma forma que o fazem os desenhos de Mel Rubi. Nessa história o espírito de Sonja encarna em Mary Jane e ela se vê transformada na guerreira ruiva. Cabe então ao seu marido, Peter Parker, o Homem-Aranha reverter a transformação de sua mulher e de toda Nova York. Uma aventura bem divertida.

    Tha art was good and the premise was interesting and different. I didn't expect much from this crossover but it was a fun little read. I actually enjoyed the older comic in the back of the book more than the re-make of it. I love both the characters and overall it was worth the read to me. The story felt a bit choppy and under-explained at times but I'm nit picking now. Tha art was good and the premise was interesting and different.

    A story that could've been told in half of the issues it took to tell. Some nice wise cracks, some nice action but mostly a yawn. And the art.... the art.... Rubi really dropped a pen in this one. Like he knew nothing about the basic anatomy. A story that could've been told in half of the issues it took to tell.

    This has great potential to being a classic DC animated film. Being that it's Marvel and Dynamite, a good animated adaptation won't happen until maybe the year 2050.

    This volume collects two stories - a 1978 Spider-Man/Red Sonja team-up, and its sequel, a five issue miniseries from 2007-2008.

The older story is presented last, but I’m going to review it first. Spider-Man first encounters Red Sonja, a female barbarian from Conan’s time, in MARVEL TEAM-UP #79. The story is co-plotted by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, scripted by Claremont, and penciled by Byrne, with Terry Austin providing inks. It begins when a museum guard is possessed by Kulan Gath, a sorcerer from Red Sonja’s time. When Mary Jane ventures into the museum and picks up Sonja’s sword (It’s on display there.), she is in turn possessed by Red Sonja, who helps Spider-Man battle the wizard. I read this story as a kid and have fond memories of it. Marvel then held the comic book license for Robert E. Howard’s Conan, but the Conan characters were seldom referenced in the contemporary Marvel universe. It was sort of cool, then, to see it happening here, and Claremont and Byrne provide some good “fish out of water” moments for Sonja and the villain. Having Red Sonja possess Mary Jane – without Spider-Man’s knowledge – seemed a cool idea, for some reason. Spider-Man and Red Sonja never get past the language barrier, and in retrospect, this, too, was probably a good call. It allowed each character to keep its unique identity and gave the fans something to discuss: What if the two actually COULD have communicated? The story isn’t perfect, as it does contain some pretty blatant contrivances (Mary Jane gets involved because – for no real apparent reason - she decides to tag along with Peter on a Daily Bugle assignment), but despite this, I think you could arguably consider it a minor classic. It tells a great, compelling tale in only seventeen pages, by the legendary Claremont/Byrne/Austin team that made X-MEN such a stellar success. The latter -day sequel, on the other hand is…well…not bad, but certainly no classic. For one thing, it probably contains less story content in its five issues than Claremont and Byrne provided in those seventeen measly pages. For another, it’s…a little by-the-numbers: Kulan Gath again possesses someone and intends to conquer the modern world. Once again, Red Sonja possesses Mary Jane. Sonja and Spidey battle but soon become allies. This time, Kulan Gath magically allows them to understand each other, so there goes some of the mystery and wonder found in the first tale. Kulan Gath transforms Spidey villains Venom, the Hobgoblin, the Scorpion and the Lizard to give our heroes some extra trouble, but we can probably all guess how that works out. Personally, I think it would have been much more interesting to see Spidey travel back to Sonja’s time or have our heroes battle a different villain. As it is, much of this is a retread of the first tale, and thus, inherently less interesting. That’s not to say that the story fails to entertain. Michael Avon Oeming does a serviceable job on the writing, and Mel Rubi’s art is quite nice, especially with the book’s slick, glossy paper and vibrant colors. We got our team-up and plenty of action, so..what the heck. It’s a story that you can largely forget once you’ve finished it, but while I was reading it, I had a good enough time. Fortunately, I got the book on discount, so I feel that I generally got my money’s worth. Had I paid full price, I might like it less.

    There are two stories contained in this one volume. Both oddly tell very similar stories: Kulan Gath attempts to take over modern day New York City and Spider-Man and Red Sonja thwart him.

Both oddly tell very similar stories: Kulan Gath attempts to take over modern day New York City and Spider-Man and Red Sonja thwart him. While both stories are entertaining in their own rights it's more interesting to compare and contrast the storytelling techniques employed. The first story is a modern five issue mini-series. Given its modernity the storytelling is much more self aware, with several nods to fans without actually breaking the fourth wall. A good example is an exchange between Spider-Man and Red Sonja while fighting Venom: Red Sonja "We must fight this beast! Not talk it to death!" Spider-Man "Hey, you distract bad guys with that outfit, I'll stick to the jibber-jabber!" This highlights Spider-Man's propensity for overtalking and the ridiculous nature of Red Sonja's garb, while pointing out that both elements are key components in their respective character's popularity. The art in this story is stunning. Red Sonja in particular is extremely well drawn, containing a killer edge while maintaining her cheesecake appeal; one marvels at how her chainmail miraculously always manages to cover just enough but that again is part of her comic book appeal. The second story is a throwback Chris Claremont penned jaunt, and as such features a heavy use of narration word boxes. This is in contrast to the modern story where Spider-Man's monologue serves as the narration for most of the action. There are still some clever insider fan references, such as the Clark Kent references, but none as provocative as those found in the modern story. Given this story is a single issue it is much more compressed, although in typical Claremont fashion a lot of action is packed into the one issue. But this type of story actually benefits from the "wide screen" storytelling of the modern age, with wider panels to show off the action and more room allowing the fights to stretch out longer. Red Sonja's character is always an interesting dichotomy between oversexed female object and emasculating woman warrior. Having her possess Mary Jane's body highlights how meek Mary Jane actually is. And pairing her with Spider-Man, the seemingly eternal teenager no matter his actual age, shows Red Sonja being a seasoned veteran and comfortable in her bikini, er, shoes.

    Michael Avon Oeming serves up a fantasy team-up by setting Spider-Man and Red Sonja up against Kulan Gath. A mystical amulet frees ancient sorcerer Kulan Gath into the modern world, where he seeks to transform New York into a medieval paradise under his rule.

Intended as a sequel to a classic one-shot Marvel Team-Up issue, the lengthy miniseries fails to improve upon the original. The cover art by Michael Turner is gorgeous eye candy, but the inside story is a hollow premise that fails to move beyond fanboy fantasies of a Red Sonja/MJ chain mail bikini pin-up. Luckily, the classic issue is printed within this collection as an addendum, showcasing a simpler time of comics. Come for the old-school read, but leave before the new school bell chimes.

    Pretty meh. The plot is fine as far as excuses to team up two awesome but improbable (one is in modern day New York City and the other is in a fantastical, magical world... presumably in the far past) characters, but the whole revert-to-Ye-Olde-English bit got real old real fast. The art was actually decent, despite what the god awful fanservice covers would indicate. Who actually thinks it looks good to pose Red Sonja on her tipy-toes every single cover to give the allusion of high heels? She's Pretty meh.

I'd have given the book a "2 Star" rating, except that it also included a reprint of a 1972 Spidey/Sonja crossover written by none other than Christ Clairmont. And he did it right. Actually the main story's plot is directly taken from this story, intentionally or not.

    When I was a kid I loved the Red Sonja movie (a fact which I now find totally embarassing!) so I was curious what a Spiderman/Red Sonja comic would be like. It was just kind of "Meh" but I guess fans of Spiderman or Red Sonja graphic novels would be interested in this. It was kind of neat to see a reprinting of the original Spiderman/Red Sonja comic from 1979 at the end of this one.

    Blbina, ale furt lepší než Avengers/Transformers. Spider-Man se chvilku mlátí s Red Sonjou, pak s Venomem a pak s dalšíma záporákama. Scénář mi moc smysl nedával (v mnohém odkazuje na Claremontův starší příběh, kterýmu by to víc slušelo na začátku knihy, než na konci). Oeming jako scénárista nezaujal. 3/10

    It was an okay read it did have some great moments in it with Spiderman and the artwork was well done but I think some parts of the story let it down and probably would have worked if it was a bit longer. Definitely recommend this for any fan though of Spiderman or the Red Sonja and Conan fans to read.
