    ComicWow!TV - AD Boorman Sep 24, 2014

    Geovani's artwork is wonderful for these characters and this story arc. HE is judicious in his use of color and background detail. He is very adept at moving the story along with the writers pace and he is clearly trying to match Simone's light-hearted tone for this arc. Looking at some of his past work, Geovani clearly has the talent to take characters from dark and serious to comedic, and he has chosen the right mood for this story. Colorist Adriano Lucas also deserves recognition for this. The careful use of palette is so important here. The wrong color becomes too dark, or - worse- frivolous and silly. Either would be wrong here. Dynamite has assembled a wonderful creative team for this title, and hopefully, they will keep them together. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 26, 2014

    It is a welcome cruelty, that each issue of Red Sonja be this amazing! And finally, Sonja gets some pillowing action of her own, after longing for it for so long in the series. Great way to end the arc! Read Full Review

    Red Sonja 12 brings to a close this second story arc under Simone and Geovani and it just keeps getting better. This issue is exciting, fun, and full of honest emotion. While I'm sad to see the artisans go, I am looking forward to seeing where the road will take Sonja next. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I honestly dont think this arc could have come to a better end than it did here. the journey was long. It was certainly odd at times. But when you get right down to it, it really was all worth it. If youve been enjoying this arc at all, or if you have any affinity for the character of Red Sonja whatsoever, youd be doing yourself a disservice if you let this issue pass you by. Read Full Review

    A good ending to a great story. The build-up from previous issues (introducing each new artisan) was well orchestrated with a crescendo climax. Walter Geovani does pretty good as the artist.
