    RED SONJA: BLACK, WHITE, RED #5 is one of the stronger entries in the anthology series with three tales that elevate Red Sonja as the ultimate warrior she was always meant to be. While the stories vary in art and writing quality, there isnt a stinker in the bunch, and you might just get a chuckle out of one or two. Read Full Review

    As with previous installments, your mileage will vary with what this book includes but I absolutely love having that variety. Each of them offers something different and fun to work with and approach the character and her storytelling potential in interesting ways. I don't want to compare them against each other but they're all fun and hit different points of interest and each delivers a clean and crisp bit of storytelling. Read Full Review

    By and large, Black, White, Red has managed to be an entertaining interlude for Red Sonja fans, but this issue does leave a smidge more lacking. Read Full Review

    Red Sonja hunts a witch and fights werewolves on the side of a mountain in “The Chill Touch of Sorcery!” And Sonja meets a new challenger in the brash “Erik the Black: He-Demon with an Axe” who walks into a tavern boasting of his greatness to Sonja but never walks out. Read Full Review

    A bit of an odd duck this month because while there's nothing here that touches the best efforts of the past months, there's nothing bad either and this has one of the highest batting averages in the series so far. All three stories are very readable but the art varies massively in quality - the Alex Moore art is crystal-clear and leaves no ambiguity but is probably the most simplistic work in the series so far, whereas Ferguson's art is the closest to a traditional Sonja style but there are glaring issues with proportion and Sonja looks like she hasn't had a meal in months.

    Edgar/Spalletta - 8.5/10

    Tieri/Ferguson - 7/10
