    A surprise ending and superior visuals earn this my highest recommendation of the week. You've never read a Sonja tale like this! Chu has crafted a saga for the ages. I cannot get enough of this Red Sonja. Read Full Review

    Although problematic in its objectifying its protagonist, Red Sonja volume four, issues six and seven serve up solid adventure and character work. It's a fun romp through America with everyone's favorite red-headed barbarian. What more could you want? Read Full Review

    Great issue, as full of action as the previous issue was lacked it. We're back to one penciller/inker for the whole issue, which is great news, and back to Sonja being front and centre in her own back, insteread of being part of a crowd, getting to strut her stuff in battle with the Demon Beast of Khauron. The mildly annoying Holly thankfully took a step back here, and the old farts and their pooch barely featured. Max is impressive in this issue, showing more fire and guts than he has done all series. Gath is suitably dastardly and Jay also gets some action. A great finish to Amy Chu's first Sonja storyline which, overall, has been a huge success. There's a shocker towards the end, which I wasn't expecting... SPOILER Max tackles the headless Gath through the portal taking the pair of them back to Hyrkania ... the solicit for the next issue says Sonja and Max are travelling across America together, so I guess Max is going to travel back through time again to hook up with Sonja. Makes you wonder why he can't just magick her back there himself though, so perhaps things have changed since that solicit were written and Sonja needs to travel across the States both to return to her own time and to rescue Max? Sonja seems oddly calm about Max' vanishing act, which is probably the only misstep in this issue. She's not one to panic but after a splash page of her on her knees on top of the wrecked Wonder Wheel, she doesn't display any real emotion about Max' disappearance.
