    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Aug 4, 2019

    What we find in the 'Red Sonja: Lord of Fools' one shot is an insightful look into past events and future revelations through the lens of mythology. Despite featuring little of the titular character, this book pulls the narrative pieces together for a truly engaging experience packed with beautiful visuals. Read Full Review

    Mark Russell wrote this book in a way that if I wasn't already a fan of his writing this cemented me in as one. Read Full Review

    Bob Q and Katie OMeara present some great, beautifully detailed imagery in this issue. The minimal action gives the artists the freedom to concentrate on the character details and backgrounds. Read Full Review

    Overall, fans of the current Red Sonja series will like it, but it's unlikely to win over any new fans. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Aug 2, 2019

    Overall I wasn't particularly impressed with this issue. The script felt all over the place and the art and letters were the only real strong point. Normally this type of story feels right up my alley, but for some reason this time it fell flat. If you're a fan of Red Sonja, there might be more here for you than there was for me. If not, then I have a lot of trouble recommending it. Read Full Review

    A real masterpiece by Mark Russell, shedding the spotlight on some of the supporting players in the main Red Sonja series. The leading lady doesn't show up much herself but there's some real imagination used in the artwork and the characterisation is fantastic. As Mark himself hoped, this works both as a standalone piece or to supplement the ongoing.
