Picking up where Peter V. Brett's Red Sonja: Blue one-shot left off, with Sonja fleeing the scene of a murder after killing a young man who tried to test her vow. Bereft of her signature chain-mail and the reputation that goes with it, she must rely on her wits and her sword as she embarks on a new series of adventures. Guilt-ridden, penniless and on the run, she is unaware that the innocent blood she spilled has awakened the dark spirit of the demon whose pelt she wears.

    Red Sonja: Unchained #1 is without a doubt one of the more competently crafted romps starring this storied warrior. At this point the creative team seems to be dedicated to doing all they can to make this a mini-series that's worth owning. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Might I have liked this better had I read "Red Sonja: Blue" and the main title? Probably. As much as I accused the artist of not having an emotional investment in the work, it's only fair that I confess to not having any kind of emotional investment in the character of Red Sonja; I reviewed this book, in part, to see if it were something I'd enjoy. I didn't, but that's just me. If you're a fan of the character and the franchise you'll likely enjoy "Red Sonja: Unchained," but I'm getting off at the first stop. I'll read the next one because it's my policy not to write off something after only one issue, so we'll see what happens next. 2 stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Feb 14, 2013

    "Red Sonja: Unchained" #1 is an unsatisfying first issue because it doesn't establish the entire parameters of this story arc in a meaty way. It deals with the old, makes violence in the present, and hints at the future. The issue should have given a more consistent arc to Red Sonja's actions and more validation to the reader as to why they should stick around for the entire miniseries. At present, this book is a tease and not exactly enticing enough to lure you back for more. Read Full Review
