Li'l Sonja is a warrior girl who travels the lands testing her mettle against monsters big and small, a younger pluckier version of the famous She-Devil With a Sword. When Li'l Sonja encounters a town plagued by eccentric bandits, she needs to figure out the pattern behind the thefts and bring the baddies to justice. No task is too tough for our crimson-haired hero. And if that isn't enough, each Li'l book comes with a two-page activity sheet!

    Li'l Sonja makes a great gift for kids of reading age and up, though it's a fun read for adults, especially if you're familiar with the adult Red Sonja. And you can always just say it's a gift when buying it at your local comics store. Read Full Review

    The art works too. The style works for this comic and the story. I think that it makes her look cute. It reminds me of the "Adventure Time" comic, which is made for kids and that is what is fun. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 20, 2014

    Fighting off the dragon with her sword, wits, and a full page of wonderful puns, Sonja eventually outsmarts the dragon and saves the day. A hell of a lot of fun, my only disappointment comes from how long it took me to pick it up and the fact that there's no issue #2 to look forward to. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Feb 3, 2014

    In the end, all I'll say is thanks to the creative team and the editors and everyone involved for doing something like this. It helps break the regular cycle and its a good switcheroo. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jan 29, 2014

    Red Sonja is a hard character to adapt to a kid-friendly medium, but Zub pulls it off rather well. Sonja's hard edges are smoothed down and given a comedic edge, but you can easily see this character growing up to become the red she-devil with a sword. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Feb 3, 2014

    Cute goes a long way with an all-ages book of this kind, and the story is fun enough, but there's not much to encourage a second read. In the end, "Li'l Sonja" #1 proves to be charming, but ultimately forgettable. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Jan 31, 2014

    I think that this is a positive thing for a company to put out. I know there are a lot of people out there that think all comics are for little kids, but obviously that isn't the case at all. There's no way any young kid should be reading the normal Red Sonja books. The dragon in the story was saying that all things red are valuable and worth keeping-even though he's a bad guy; this is still kind of a positive point. Sonja is a redhead too, and I'm sure kids get made fun of all the time for being 'gingers' still. I think this book could act as a moral lesson, a character to look up to, as well as a way for kids to get into comics, so I see it as a positive even though it may seem like an annoying fad to some.
