Witchblade/Red Sonja #1 Review

Posted in Comics, Miniseries, Reviews on March 2, 2012 by nemedian bard

Witchblade/Red Sonja #1 gets a 4 out of 5 from Geeks of Doom.

Geeks of Doom

“Witchblade/Red Sonja #1 hooked me right from the beginning. You show me a lone warrior traversing a barren, hostile environment, and I’m in. Throw in some awesomely drawn skulls and some stalactites, and you really got me, but it’s the combination of fantastic writing and gorgeous artwork that will keep me reading this series.”
– Empress Eve, Geeks of Doom
