    Red Sonja going into a fight as the She Devil is terrifying and intense. Maybe it's just me, maybe I'm a sucker for barbarian stories with deeper meaning. I've never been into any Red Sonja series in the past; I think I made that comment when I reviewed the first issue. I'm happy to say that Bennett and Aneke's run has brought me a wonderful addiction, I'm glad I chose to keep up with this series and to give it a chance. I can only see good things from this team going forward, because I've only seen good things so far. Read Full Review

    There will be sacrifices made and lives lost for the rebels to gain their freedom. Red Sonja must make a decision unlike any she has ever made as she watches her former lover, the King descend into madness. Sonja promises not to kill Kanara even as Midyan sends a flock of owls to attack her. Sonja finally confronts the King and accuses him of being a traitor. He argues that it was she who left him and Midyan in the past. Sonja tells him that he is a murderer and that she could not stay with someone like him. The final confrontation between Sonja and the King is well worth the read. This is the final chapter of a gut wrenching story as Sonja has to do things to her former lovers that she does not want to do. Red Sonja Vol. 3 #6ends on a peaceful enough note and we see a rare moment melancholy for our protagonist. Read Full Review

    This issue was much better, and I will be staying on to see the story continue. Yes, I am pleased with this book now, and no, I don't think I will be giving it up anytime soon. I am now eager to follow up on it. There are a few loose ends to tie up, and I'm sure there are plenty of other challenges to be met. As this story arc ends, I hope that this is just the beginning of the rest of Sonja's adventures. The soul of Hyrkania must triumph, and it will. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jun 23, 2016

    As a finished arc, its also far easier to appreciate the journey the characters have undergone, and I can say now that this is undoubtedly a story which is going to read a lot better in a collected volume than in single issues. Its not perfect, and the series has had its ups and downs along the way, but this final chapter delivers a strong denouement which, while not exactly ground-breaking or revolutionary, definitely keeps the pages turning right until the very end. A boldly unconventional take on the She-Devil then, and hopefully the start of a long, enjoyable relationship between Red Sonja and Marguerite Bennett. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jun 23, 2016

    Red Sonja Vol. 3, issue 6 brings a fairly satisfying end to Bennett, Aneke, and Sutil's first story in this new series. While the writing is fine, the art definitely takes a dip in quality. It's not enough to ruin the comic, but it is distracting and sometimes gets in the way of the story. Hopefully, this is just a hiccup and the comic will get back on track with the next issue. Dr. Josh gives this a". Read Full Review
