    The mixed visuals lessen the joy of this issue, but the story remains incredibly fun. I'm hoping next issue that there's only one artist on this issue, but I'm still looking forward to it because Chu's story is so enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Unless something happens that's worth talking about in the next issue; I'm likely to be done with reviewing this series. It's had my curiosity, and I've given it a fair chance, but this issue has destroyed any faith I had in it continuing to be interesting and finishing decently. I'll still read the next issue, but from a review perspective, I've said all I have to say and will move on to something that deserves a review. This will likely sell because Sonja has a dedicated fanbase. They'll either leave here in the modern era or ship her back to her time, and either one will be shitty because the story isn't strong enough to make either good or worth reading. If you're getting some kind of enjoyment out of this series, please let me a comment and tell me what I'm missing because I don't see it. Read Full Review

    MASSIVE drop in quality from the rest of the series. The 2 is all for Gomez' art in the second hafl of the comic. There is no action in this story, none of the characters come across as likeable, particularly the two new old folks and their mutt, Sonja herself is barely in the story and when she is, she's reacting to other characters, instead of driving the show. Let's hope next issue will be a massive about-face as this is probably the most boring Red Sonja comic I've ever read. Coney Island residents might like it, otherwise steer clear.
