This is one of my favourite scenes in Gail Simone's run of Red Sonja, it never fails to put a smile on my face :)
Part of it, I think, is that the main reason it's so hard for me to get into the character is that she doesn't have a strong recurring cast. I do like Sonja, but I've always much preferred reading about teams or at least duos than about lone heroes.
Simone's second storyarch temporarily provides Sonja with very likeable teammates, the seven of them working as a team (well, six
of them working as a team while Rakaua looks funny and beautiful, but I'm sure not complaining ♥), and as such I've enjoyed it much
better than pretty much any other Sonja story I've seen.( There is no part of this I don't love. )
This is my second Red Sonja post, and I was thinking of making a third one. However, both scenes I'd like to show you take place in the same issue, and because of the page limit I can only post one of them.
So, I'll let you guys decide. One is a funny scene featuring this run's recurring joke that Sonja wants to get laid but gets constantly thwarted (the very expressive art is particularly great for this, Sonja's facial expressions are hilarious). The other is a serious scene about animal abuse, which Sonja STRONGLY
objects to. Which one should I post?
Btw, the art is by Walter Geovani. I couldn't find his name in the tags.
