    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Nov 12, 2014

    Red Sonja 13 begins a new arc and it serves as a good jumping-on point for new readers. As always, the writing, the art, the color, and the letters are excellent and combine to make a comic that is full of action, adventure, humor, and thought. The concept of forgiveness, I believe, is going to be played out in multiple ways and the title, "The Forgiveness of Monsters" begs the question, who needs to be forgiven, who is the monster, and can monsters forgive themselves? As always, highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Nov 15, 2014

    Walter and Adriano and Simon are assisted in this issue with covers from Jenny Frison and Renae De Liz, both of whom deliver some really captivating images, especially Renae's utterly badass variant. In the second half, when Sonja gets drunk, Walter plays a bit with the camera angles to reflect her state and those are some fun panels indeed. As before on this series, the primary focus is on the characters themselves, and Walter's characterwork is excellent. He poses his character without going into body contortions and keeps things realistic. The same extends for his backgrounds as well in a way since he doesn't go flashy with them but keeps things impactful and minimal. That works for me. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Logan Dalton Nov 13, 2014

    Red Sonja#13's tongue in cheek sense of humorapplies to its villainas well. Gail Simone makes Kalas-Ra speakall his dialogue in the third person while referring to himselfas “one”and being simultaneously creepyand pathetic. Geovani gives hima comical cone hat, which contrasts with magical symbolsand the blue lightof his staff. Lucas softens the colors of his clothing, but gives his magic staffan ethereal sheen. This mixed imagery and writing for Kalas-Ra gives hima little bit ofa mystery, which is expounded upon throughout the comic,anda nice part ofa comic which takes its hero to some dark places, but keeps its sense of humorandadventure intact.

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Nov 13, 2014

    Overall, Red Sonja #13 is a strong beginning for yet another promising arc. It's fun to have a curse to take away Sonja's ability to forgive, and it's possible we will see a much darker side of the infamous She-Devil. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Nov 17, 2014

    Never being able to forgive seems like such an insignificant thing. Sonja herself dismisses it initially, and then shes actually faced with a situation where it affects her, and its situations like that which have the potential to make this the most interesting arc of this book to date. My hopes are high, this could really be something special. Now I just have to be patient and wait for the next issue. Read Full Review
