    Halloween is the perfect excuse for anyone and everyone to jump into horror. I'm glad that comic publishers are getting in on the fun, allowing creators to explore the spookier side of some classic characters. The Red Sonja Halloween Special is a great example of this and I sincerely hope we get to see her tackle more horror elements in the years to come. Read Full Review

    While this Red Sonja comic doesn't exactly explore new territory, it does what it does really well. I enjoyed Curse of the Wolf quite a bit, and Hail Halcoose was a nice little added bonus. If you're a fan of Red Sonja, you'll enjoy the Red Sonja Halloween 2018 issue. If you're just looking for a fun and entertaining Halloween story, this book has you covered as well. Read Full Review

    This issue was a game of two halves

    The first story, featuring Sonja hunting a werewolf, is a great little sword and sorcery/horror tale with really nice art and a fantastically well-written She-Devil from Erik Burnham ... far from the caricature some other writers have produced, she's really well-rounded, a true hero but with her fair share of shortcomings. Burnham hits the balance perfectly with her. Tom Garcia gives her some truly impressive *cough* 'assets but also takes care to draw her with a massive and jacked build, somebody who's convincing as the greatest warrior of her world.

    The other story is an 8-page bit of fluff with childish art

    8 seems like a fair overall score.
