Many people have met their end while facing the She-Devil and her sword... and usually, that's the end of it. But now, Sonja is compelled by a minor god to compensate a man for the death of his eldest son. To settle the score, she'll have to retrieve a family heirloom from a vicious beast... but it could be worse. (After all, some heroes are forced to perform twelve labors, not just one!) Monsters, treasure, swordplay and gods -- all in "The Axe at the Top of the Mountain!"

    The art is gorgeous with some amazing panels that show what a formidable and skilled warrior Sonja is as well as showcase some beautifully rendered creatures for her to face. Read Full Review

    Roberto Castro and Salvatore Aiala (studio) deliver classic kinetic visuals that magically capture the wit, brute force, and sexuality of the character without reducing Red Sonja's heroic stature in any way. It will be interesting to see and read where goes and who she conquers next. This book continues to deliver interested stories with compelling art work each and every month. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Nov 29, 2018

    Conan doesn't have this sort of problem, and there's no reason why Red Sonja can't be the same. Robert E Howard's Hyborian Age is packed to the gills with teeming cities, brooding jungles, blood tinged oceans, mystical mountains, uncaring gods, short and brutal battles and doom-haunted tombs. Dishing up such a bland meal as Red Sonja #23 is a crying shame that shortchanges not only the character and her potential, but more importantly, the audience. Read Full Review

    Really fun story just let down slightly by some inconsistent art. Great little romp though and pretty much self-contained ... you won’t need to be a regular reader to enjoy it

    Another poor message to follow the one in last issue - this time that the life of a person who doesn’t accomplish great things is worth less.
