Know then, O Prince, that after two months of chasing Sonja The Red through the Hyrkanian steppes, Dragan and Sonja at last met in pitched battle. They fought, not for a bridge, as the great histories say, but for the future of the Hyborian Age. For what is a bridge, O Prince, but the choice of one realm over another? By MARK RUSSELL (Year of The Villain: Sinestro) and MIRKO COLAK (Conan).

    Fans of this series couldn't have wished for a better conclusion to this arc than RED SONJA #12. Mark Russell outdoes himself with well-paced, tight storytelling, giving us a compelling and satisfying conclusion. Do not miss this. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 8, 2020

    I've really enjoyed this first year of larger arc storytelling from Mark Russell with a character like Sonja. It's easy to write for trades for the character with smaller adventures and more personal things, but tackling a larger war story requires a bigger commitment and avoiding going for the ease of the other route. Mirko Colak is definitely an artist that I identity heavily with Sonja's look now as there's a great earthiness and roughness to it that captures the feeling of the period and the world well. Russell and Colak bring a big phase of this war to a close here but it definitely doesn't end the war and that's going to get into some fascinating new material. Read Full Review

    Presumably they needed this issue out in time to set-up the next storyline, which will also necessitate another Red Sonja special where Dragan's son turns to dark sorcery to secure his empire. If it's anything like the series to date, that will be one to enjoy as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Jan 18, 2020

    Red Sonja #12 concludes the epic year-long arc with a whimper, focusing on Sonja the Red less and less in order to firmly establish a narrative surrounding the masculine-driven dynasty of the Hyrkanian empire. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 22, 2020

    The comic closes with some parting words by the doomed Dragan whose curse prevented him from abandoning a land he truly wanted very little to do with and in the end led him to his destiny at the end of Sonja's blade. For fans. Read Full Review
