    A decent enough issue that begins a new story. There's no real action for Sonja as she listens to the saga of Skath. My opinion of the story could improve depending on where this goes. The art is okay, with some images being better than others. The colors are too realistic, being primarily brown and tan: cheating on reality is allowed in comics. I've loved the previous issues of this series, so I'll return to see where this is ultimately heading. Read Full Review

    Strictly a set-up for a new Sonja arc and introducing Sonja to the previous owner of her sword ... this comic is therefore relatively short on the She-Devil herself and mainly focuses on the background of newcomer Lord Skath. His tale is beautifully told though, helped by excellent art from guest artist Daniel HDR, and the plentiful flashbacks to the previous stories make this an ideal place for new readers to join. Not the best issue if you’re after Sonja slicing and dicing her way through hordes of evildoers but as the first issue in a grand new arc, this couldn’t have been much better.
