    The lastest saga of the She-Devil with a sword starts in strong fashion. Enemies are encountered and cut down, but the Tower still stands, and it is watching her. Read Full Review

    Red Sonja: The Black Tower #1 is a strong start that does what it needs to, so much so that the creative team guides it to an earned recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    Honestly, I had a lot of fun reading this book. It's fast, funny, and easy to read. All of which rates high in my list of positive attributes. If you're looking for a title to take you away for a little while, this one might be just right for you. Happy reading! Read Full Review

    The story is really played out in the first and last few pages of issue one, with some gruesome scenes and a twist, so the balance of the issue tips toward fighting. If this is how you like your Red Sonja, this is a fine start to this four-issue story. Read Full Review

    Overall, this first issue is not bad, but not great either. It is a bubble rider that will either pop or float off into new highs. I am hoping for the latter as Frank Tieri has the chops for some good stories and he is very capably backed by Razek's art. This has potential. We will just have to see if it makes it.

    I honestly hate giving wholly negative reviews, but on this occasion the comic lands so incredibly wide of the mark that its difficult to find anything to really praise here. Red Sonja is a character Im desperate to see written and drawn well, if only to see her rise above the pointless misogyny label that so many readers place on the character. Sadly, on this occasion, Red Sonja: The Dark Tower plays right into these critics hands, providing a superficial look at a multi-layered character, and whose only real high point if you can call it that is Sonja removing the mercenary leaders weapon with what I can only assume to be her bare hands.
