    It all culminates into a wonderful read that ends in a great cliffhanger that will make you want issue #18 right this minute. Red Sonja in general is a phenominal character for her humor, wit, tenacity and confidence. Under Simone, Sonja continually is growing and developing. It would be a crime not to pick up this series.   Read Full Review

    As such, I speak to you today not as a critic. Nor as a fan. But as a proselytizer. Heed the lessons this book has to offer. And read on, lest you never read again! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Aug 3, 2015

    Gail Simone and Walter Giovanni are still on Red Sonja and that makes me a happy reviewer. Once again, this creative team has crafted a fun, exciting adventure wrapped around a core of solid character motivations. Read Full Review

    If there is one book you should buy this week, Red Sonja #17 is the one to grab. I would be very surprised if this book doesn't end up on a best of list for 2015. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jul 29, 2015

    I have been patient with Sonja. The Swords crossover doesn't show her in the best light, but as proven here and in the 1973 special a couple of weeks back, she is definitely a fun character to spend some time with. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 30, 2015

    Issue #17 doesn't offer anything we haven't been seen before, Sonja again tasked to grudgingly protect the innocent from a threat they can't repel themselves. What makes it fun is the sheer Sonja-ness of it all. Read Full Review

    Red Sonja #17 kicks off yet another arc, with the unique events being more than inviting.

    If you thought there was nowhere else to go after the last arc, forget it. There are other places to go. And those places have nuns and books, and evil empresses, and soldiers getting slaughtered. Yes the She Devil answers the bell one more time and looks to entertain the reader once again.

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Jul 30, 2015

    Simone and Geovani are perfectly aware of the voice of the book, and their collaboration " never too serious, never too silly, but tongue still lodged firmly in its cheek " has made not only this issue, but this series really enjoyable. There's a playfulness to it, but there's a willingness to explore and expand. They allow Sonja to grow, to learn, and want to seek out new experiences, and I think it makes this that much more interesting. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Aug 6, 2015

    Overall, #17 is a good issue with a start of a promising new arc. We have a chance to see deeper into Sonja's past, and she's easily more than a blood-thirsty demon. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Jul 29, 2015

    Red Sonja #17 is a fun romp. It also looks at some deeper subjects, such as education, but only really touches them on the surface. Simone's writing is for the most part enjoyable, although there are some missteps with the old nun. Walter Geovani's artwork is excellent. He mixes up different types of panels and provides a number of unique camera angles to depict different sequences. Read Full Review
