    I don't know if Dynamite are following in DC's shoes by saturating the market with their most popular characters. The problem in doing so, as DC may have found out previously, is that the high quality expected is hard to maintain. Maybe of Vampi and Sonja, less could actually be more. Read Full Review

    Red Sonja 1982 is every bit as goofy as you might expect. Read Full Review

    RED SONJA 1982 (ONE-SHOT) pays homage to cheesy, sci-fi action thrillers of the 1980s. It succeeds in achieving cheesiness and not much else. At least it's a colorful and well-drawn book. Read Full Review

    Not good at all. Eric Blake's art is nice but the colours looks amateurish and Amy Chu's worst habits come through in the writing ... a good concept, poorly executed and a story filled with coincidences and empty whimsy. It's a shame because the opening pages were really strong but the quality drops like a stone once Sonja appears in 1982 and it just becomes a fashion show and a whirlwind tour of 1982's must-have gadgets
