    If Convergence didn't do it for you, and Secret Worlds has you confused, then Swords of Sorrow is a book that cuts the crap and serves up a story of good versus evil. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 3, 2015

    The second installment of this essentially brings the two power players onto the same page, with a nod towards Vampirella as well as she continues to figure out what's going on. The pairing of Thoris and Sonja works well since Sonja's otherworldly adventures are always fun and taking her to Barsoom feels like it takes her out of her element, but not in a huge way. The two showcase well in the action department here as they play to traditional roles of fight first and ask questions later and the artwork brings it to life beautifully, particularly as the coloring really takes it up a few notches since it's not mired in darker colors. The bits we get with the Traveller and her courier are interesting as you want to know more of what they're doing, and we get some decent reinforcement from the darker side of the equation as well with the kind of incentive that was put into play for them by their new master. A solid second issue that has me looking forward to a lot more. Read Full Review

    Swords of Sorrow is quickly starting to become the event that we all hoped for, as following a rather average start, it's nice to see that our hopes weren't in vain. Giving explosive developments that start to bring our female warrioress' together in a big way, the narrative of this issue leads nicely into the future, leaving this fan excited for the next.

    GWW - Enrique Rea Jun 4, 2015

    Simone's characters all come across well, but there's no denying Red Sonja's star power shines brightest in Swords of Sorrow. Perhaps the most well-known of Dynamite's female pulp stars, the she-devil is a funny and relentless warrior. If you like adventure and cinematic action then get on Swords of Sorrow now.

    cxPulp - Terry Verticchio Jun 5, 2015

    Swords Of Sorrow has a bevy of ladies, with long flowing manes, eviscerating men with swords and shooting them in the head. If that isn't enough to make this title a best seller, I don't know what else will. It all works for me though. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jun 2, 2015

    So, another solid issue, which serves a number of purposes. I would have liked to see the main story moved along a little faster, serving the main story rather than the tie-in adverts, but recognize this is the second issue of six, so there is still time to get on track. It's clear that Dynamite consider Sonja, Thoris and Vampirella as their trinity and it is to Simone's credit that neither character is short-changed, which should please the fans. Read Full Review

    The art in the book was solid . The details to the heroes looked great, and the colors didn't feel muddy. Davila does a great job of making each heroine look great. Overall, Sword of Sorrows 2 was a much better and fun read. Read Full Review
