From the acclaimed creative team of Gail Simone and Walter Geovanni, the final chapter in the epic "Forgiving of Monsters" saga finds the She-Devil with a Sword besieged from every side.  A parasitic infestation, an intensely personal grudge, an imperiled Astronomer, and an entire kingdom on the verge of homicidal fury have all led to a showdown so bloody and explosive, it surely lives up to - or even exceeds - the Red Sonja series' reputation of swords-and-sorcery excellence!

    Simone's writing is simple and powerful. With this issue of RED SONJA, she again demonstrates why she is one of the most underrated writers in comics today. Simone does high-concept as well as anyone in the business. At the same time, she does small stories with a poignancy and a sense of subtle, nuanced dialogue (both internal and external) that are matched only by a talented few. Read Full Review

    I really hate to be so gushy on a review. But I can't help myself here. After reading this one, I can tell that it will resonate with me for some time to come. It truly was a pleasure to read. In fact, it made my night after I read it, instantly putting me in a great mood. I can't utter a better compliment than that. Read Full Review

    A beautiful ending to an adventure I never knew I wanted to take until I was already on it, Red Sonja #16 is the perfect completion to Gail Simones time on the Red Devil. Yes, we get to see much more of the writers take on the Barbarian over in Swords of Sorrows, but for now, this is a strong finish to a lovely run. Red Sonja, we hardly knew you until now. And Im so glad weve had this time together. Read Full Review

    All good things must come to an end (unless I'm wrong about this being Simone's last issue and then I'll just recycle this line later), but if there is to be an end, I'm glad it went out on such a high note. I've been continually impressed with this comic since issue one, and it just grew better with each successive issue. The writing, the art, and the colors are all top-notch, and this team has not only revitalized this character, but redefined her into something stronger while staying true to her roots.

    What Gail Simone has also done with Red Sonja is she's broken away with how the character has been portrayed in the past. Gone is her oath to not give in to a man unless beaten in battle. As well she has given up living for revenge for all the wrong that has been done to her in the past. Red Sonja is free. Free to make her own way in the world. Read Full Review

    Red Sonja #16 may have had more problems than most issues, but that didn't stop it from being a thoroughly entertaining read. Seeing the She-Devil with a Sword come face to face with Death, this issue proved to be a huge turning point for the character, showing that you should never count her out. Read Full Review
