Blood will rain down upon the snowy ground as the She-Devil With A Sword battles her way across the Asiatic lands of Khitai. In a land of complex family loyalties and death before dishonor, will sharpened steel and the muscle to wield it be enough?

    As a one-shot, I loved this story, and would really like to see Kazuko get some more screentime, either in another one-shot from the same creative team or in the main ongoing series. Read Full Review

    The Daily Crate - Jennifer Bosier Apr 3, 2014

    I adore Red Sonja in most of her iterations, but it's always a treat when she is given the chance to be more than just a fierce warrior. This is one of the most humanizing issues I can recall and her character is richer for her. Red Sonja and Cub is the type of story that I would be happy to extend beyond just a stand-alone story.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 2, 2014

    While this wasn't the most imaginative story, it was still entertaining and with Lau on the artwork it's hard to pass this issue up. Overall it accomplishes its task of telling a self-contained story that is entertaining and true the main character and that's all you can really ask for from a good one-shot. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Apr 2, 2014

    Red Sonja and Cub (one-shot) may not be what I necessarily expected but I found it to be a solid jaunt. The creative forces behind it do a marvelous job earning a recommendation. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Apr 2, 2014

    Not a bad one-shot by any means with plenty of taut action to keep the action fans happy. The story isn't breaking any new ground and I would have liked to have seen some homages to Lonewolf, but overall it's a nice adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Apr 7, 2014

    Overall, I liked quite a bit of this story, but it isn't one that will stick with me. "Red Sonja and Cub" is pleasant but falls short of memorable. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Apr 4, 2014

    Red Sonja and cub is a perfectly competent book, but only Red Sonja enthusiasts will find it anything special about it. I cant recommend it to fans of LW&C, and I doubt new readers will be particularly enthralled. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Apr 1, 2014

    Overall though, this is still worth a look, particularly for fans of the character, and definitely due to the beautiful artwork of Jonathan Lau. It all just feels like a little bit of a missed opportunity though, thinking about how truly great it could have been. Read Full Review
