I don t have a lot of experience with Red Sonja as a character I think I once read one other free comic she was in, and know she lives in the same world as Conan and wears skimpy outfits , but this covered most all of what I needed to know except for the reason she doesn t wear clothes I m not sure it really got me interested in readingof the character, but it was a capably told medieval type warrior story that gave the character some depth beyond what I knew. One of my favorite aspects of Simone s Red Sonja is her likability There is a crotchety layer over her good heartedness, and a deep respect for human life under her powerful gift for ending it Fun to spend some time with her.

all the way at this year s Emerald City Con in March As a fan of both the writer and the character, this was extremely good news for me Anyone who follows my blog and my reviews knows that I hold Gail to be one of the top writers in the industry I covered my appreciation of her work most recently in my Gail Simone, Dark Horse, Tomb Raider post And Red Sonja, I ve been a fan of the character ever since I read the first two Red Sonja Omnibuses from Dynamite I saw the ill fated movie as well last year, and while it was quite a disappointment in a lot of ways, I still enjoyed watching Red Sonja There are a lot of things that can be said about Red Sonja, both good and bad, but it can t be denied that Red Sonja has inspired numerous authors over the years into creating characters who emulate the same characteristics as her.That s the kind of legacy that Red Sonja has brought to the world of fiction She is a pulp icon as much as someone like Vampirella or Conan or John Carter or anyone else.RedSonjaVarComp01Coming into Red Sonja 1 I was looking for a comic that would take a step away from the usual action adventure with loads of badassery and do something different This is the style of comics that I ve come to expect from Gail Simone and I wanted her to do something similar for Sonja And she does, in spades.Sure, there are some action scenes in the issue In fact, it starts off in the aftermath of one battle and ends just as another battle begins But it is every single page in between that matters These are the pages that define Red Sonja in this issue and which will undoubtedly set the tone for the rest of the series should Gail continue along the same line in future issues, of which I have no doubt.The issue is a character study of sorts that serves to place Sonja within the larger context of the world of Hyboria We see her interact with all sorts of characters We see her as not just a fighter of exceptional skill, but also as a leader, a hero Someone to both admire and look up to, and even connect with Even though I was expecting some of this to happen over the course of the issue, I was still surprised every few pages by all the neat little twists that Gail worked in.And I won t ignore the humour either There isn t a lot of it, but there is enough there to make you think she s BADASS If I had to make a comparison, I suppose I d compare her to Daario Naharis from Game of Thrones the television series, which I ve seen and not the books, which I haven t Or perhaps even Ser Raven from Helen Lowe s Gathering of the Lost, the second novel in her Wall of Night series from Orbit Harper Voyager.Red Sonja v2 01 Buscema VariantThere are a fair number of twists in the story and every single one of them left me impressed with the way that Gail pulled it off Where the story is concerned, I wasthan impressed Gail has taken another character under her wing and done something wonderful.Walter Geovani is the artist on this issue and once again, as he did on Ron Marz s Prophecy, he has delivered another great looking book His art is of the same caliber as that of Stjepan Sejic Artifacts, Ravine , Ivan Reis Joe Prado Aquaman and Justice League , Amanda Conner Silk Spectre, Power Girl , Fiona Staples Saga and others that I hold in high esteem These are all artists that I ve grown to expect great things out of and they rarely, if ever, disappoint They are consistent and remarkable with their art, Walter not being an exception to that His lines are all clean, his characters expressive with both expression and body language, his panels full of details and neat little touches.I have no criticism of his art at all, aside from a mid issue panel which introduces two minor characters The way the panel was setup in relation to other panels on the same page, it was as if the two of them appeared out of thin air It wasn t clear that they d jumped in from off screen An extra panel showing them nearby, ready to spring, would have been perfect Perhaps this is also a story issue RedSonjaVarComp02Either way, this was the only niggle in what is otherwise a fantastic issue In a final assessment, this niggle certainly didn t impact on my enjoyment of the issue at all It was a weird moment, nothing.The wait for issue 2, out next month, is going to be long Rating 9.5 10 I ve wanted to read this even since I heard Simone was going to write a Red Sonja comic Took me a year to get around to it This first issue is both good and a little disappointing I loved the front and centre female heroics and camaraderie of Birds Of

a little disappointing I loved the front and centre female heroics and camaraderie of Birds Of Prey Here though, Sonja does not have female peers, although she does have proteges who will hopefully evolve The final page reveal of her chief opponent is promising too The set up is actually very good, with an encounter with rogues in a wood which Howard would have approved of, Sonja all coolly lethal and in control and an intriguing backstory, which results in Sonja becoming the champion of a kingdom that is racked by plague and facing invasion Impossible odds should bring out the best in the fiery swordmaiden The art s good, there s no overt fan service but you still get a sense of Sonja s, er, visceral appeal In the early days of Marvel s Conan pages the end of book material was full of pictures of women dressing up as Sonja at conventions we d call this cosplay today and of course this comic retains the absurd yet iconic chain mail bikini So this seems like a good start to a comic adventure, but I m curious to see how Simone will shape this series in line with herfeminist take on women in comics I see possibilities in this first issue, but Sonja is going to need to go up against better opponents which seems set to happen, and to not be the only exceptional woman in this world I have to admit, I have held a grudge against Red Sonja for a while Let me explain my name is Sonja, and I have red curly hair think Merida style , and so all my life I have heard the neckbeard nerds go Sonja Like Red Sonja You should wear a metal bikini HARDEHARHAR I AM SO CLEVER So, I haven t been the biggest fan of the character, but when I heard Gail Simone was going to be writing the relaunch for Dynamite Entertainment, suddenly I was interested Hmmm Maybe this wouldn t end up bei I

by rounded you mean her boobs to save his life So I decided to give it a chance Sure, the metal bikini gave me pause, but I m a feminist after all, and I believe you should wear what you want.I was not disappointed, and in fact, I am happy to report my attitude towards Red Sonja has changed completely Now, when I work out, I think, HA HA I cannot wait to be as badass as Red Sonja so I too can make enemy hordes cower in fear Complete review So I knew Red Sonja like I knew Conan the Barbarian and Barbarella The last of which I hate but that s just a preference but I never would ve picked the new Red Sonja up if it wasn t for Gail Simone.This Red Sonja is perfect A fierce warrior who takes no crap from anyone She doesn t stand for any racism or discrimination, drinks hard, plays hard and enjoys possibly nothingthan a fight Gail Simone is well known for writing women well and she isn t afraid of adding any usually unreprese So I knew Red Sonja like I knew Conan the Barbarian and

trade slowly uncovers Red Sonja s backstory as she fights, flees, dies and comes back for revenge against a woman who is a sister to her The art is gorgeous, the story well written and the side stories well woven into the narrative If you like this sort of classic sword fighting fantasy kind of story at all give Red Sonja and Gail Simone a try I picked this up because it s written by Gail Simone, and I m glad that I did Definitely not my typical taste in comics, but Red Sonja 1 has so much action adventure, issues of honor and allegiance, sharp dialogue, and.
