Now, in the status quo, Red Sonja is Queen Sonja, charged with repelling a superior invading army from her borders.
But in her recent history she was a mercenary adventurer.

So...what's the moral of this story?

I quite like Red Sonja. She's a character who can tolerate a high amount of nonsense and fits as the straight woman to a mad, mad world (Red Sonja has to collect a chef, an erotic dancer and others so that to a mad emperor can host a party, Red Sonja gets involved in gentrification, Red Sonja is a chainmail bikini-clad fish out of water in NYC because of magic)

And now Mark Russell is writing her. Mark Russell who wrote the most intriguing comic I've not read all the way through - The Flintstones.

I'm on board for #1 at least.

No man knows the place of her birth, nor where she learned to wield a sword to shame many a male. They know only that she is called The She-Devil of The Hyrkanian Steppes. That, and RED SONJA. MARK RUSSELL (The Flintstones) and MIRKO COLAK (Conan) bring a savage tale of metal and blood. A world conqueror possesses a massive army and a fatal prophecy. A bastard sorceress craves revenge. And a fearsome red-haired warrior is made wartime ruler of a homeland set for decimation

And so... )

Vol.4 of Red Sonja has been bizarre, but fun. It began with evil wizard Kulan Gath transporting Sonja to our world, where we get a tiny bit chainmail-bikini-ed fish out of water stuff, then more fighting, then some nonsense, then a road trip and fighting bikers, then Sonja goes back to Hykrania via Hell. After that, she gets her unbalanced sword repaired, and the blacksmith tells her that it is the prized sword of a famous warrior king who lives nearby. Sonja travels to his castle to return it, but finds it is under new ownership.

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.

"My theory is this. Convergence, Secret Wars, and Swords of Sorrow are all the same event, taking place concurrently. They all involve realities smashing together. It's three companies telling a mega-story. That is my theory. It's impossible for these three events to not be connected. It's one huge story and we're each telling a facet." - Gail Simone

'I've enjoyed steampunk — everything except the name. . . . "Steampunk," which I think started as a joke take on cyberpunk and then caught on, is not that. These are gentleman and gentlewoman adventurers in the tradition of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. There's nothing "punk"-ish about it. Unfortunately, after we settled on the title Legenderry: Steampunk Adventure I came up with "Steampulp," which would have been more perfect title, since it encapsulates what we were trying to do.' -- Bill Willingham

Greetings True Believers! I love the old Savage Sword of Conan magazines. Colonel Green's previous post has inspired me to do some Conan posts. This is from SSoC #73. I have always liked this story because it shows several views of what's happening. Enjoy!
