    KILLING RED SONJA #2 is a well-constructed chapter in the series that shows the characters evolving along with the quality of the art. It may seem odd to have a Red Sonja series without Red Sonja, but it's keeping my attention...for now. Read Full Review

    Killing Red Sonja moves into some interesting territory here as we see more of how Cyril is handling the situation and the reveals along the way. There's definitely more trouble in the future as well as a subplot perks up with a pair of characters that use birds to hunt up gold and we see just how effective that is here. It's a lot of unknowns at the moment but it's a visual treat that has me curious to see how far it goes in this series. Cyril himself is the main focus, however, and I'm definitely enjoying seeing him grapple with what's going on and how those that are assigned to protect him on this journey are dealing with keeping him content while also looking out for their lives and what Cyril's mother wants – all while remembering that Cyril is the emperor.

    That all doesn't want me to come back for more. But I also kind of want to see how it all plays out, as well. So, I am giving this series one more issue to pick up before I drop it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kellie Keener Jun 18, 2020

    While it isnt a great story for people who want Red Sonja action, Killing Red Sonja #2 is still an interesting story about what happens when a child loses his father and suddenly has to hold the weight of an empire, and the world, on his inexperienced shoulders. Read Full Review

    By the end of the second issue he's actually in on the joke, but it's still a slog to care about any of these characters minus the talking boar (because who doesn't love that?). Read Full Review

    I can't really recommend this one at all even if you like this story as it just seems to be a bridging story and not really worth getting for just this episode. Maybe if it was part of anthology you would be able to see where it lies in the larger story. Read Full Review
