    I feel I've already promoted how Dynamite and the writers are using this format to maximise the storylines through six or seven pages of action. These standalone issues though really are the easiest way into the world of the she-devil. Read Full Review

    This issue was not as good as the previous issue but it is still enjoyable. My favorite stories are the Iron Queen because the art is so dramatic and beautiful and the Cold Monger because it depicts a Red Sonja I admire and love. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 20, 2021

    I continue to really enjoy these short stories that we get focusing on Sonja. Not having to worry about continuity or where it fits in the grand scheme of things, the creative get to just work a ten-page story or so without any other concern than what works right here and now. And the team here across the three tales definitely delivers, especially since each story is definitely its own thing and not just different shades of it. Sonja continues to be a great character and this series is reinforcing that nicely. Read Full Review

    The best of the three tales, “The Iron Maiden,” features some great humor (almost all of it at Sonja's expense) and some of my favorite art of the series so far. A wounded Red Sonja is found and tended to in the woods by a local woman, although the wounded She-Devil with a Sword struggles to return the favor when Onelia attempts to save her village from traders get her into trouble.

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Oct 20, 2021

    RED SONJA: BLACK, WHITE, RED #4 is a solid, middle-of-the-road entry in the anthology series with three, solid, middle-of-the-road stories. The standout short goes to Phillip Kennedy Johnsons depiction of a feeble, old Queen Sonja remembering her roots and returning to her former glory. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is more of a mixed bag than previous installments of Black, White, Red, but it still has some highlights. Read Full Review

    A real mix of quality this month - two of the stories are substandard but 'The Iron Queen' might be the strongest contender in the series so far, with jawdropping art and a rousing narrative. Sanya Anwar's tale presents Sonja as an angry simpleton and gives us a boring story about how all men are evil, women are under the cosh etc. etc. Chuck Brown's story is just confusing and isn't helped by Drew Moss' uninspiring artwork. Such a shame we couldn't get three 'Iron Queen's here.

    Anwar - 4/10
    PKJ/Beach - 10/10
    Brown/Moss - 4/10
