Red Sonja #61 Review

Posted in Comics, Reviews on January 9, 2012 by nemedian bard

Ray Tate reviews Red Sonja #61 on Comics Bulletin.

Red Sonja #61

“Sonja before this wandering arc suffered something fierce, and that weight fell heavily on her shoulders throughout the previous issues. In this story, she lightens up considerably, to such a point that she decides that nobody needs to die. It’s a wonderful little distinction that further builds on Sonja’s sense of honor as well as her status as a warrior. Her alleviating mood is infectious, and you genuinely like this version of Sonja as an individual.”
