    Anthology books are what they are with things that work and things that don't. Red Sonja has had a mix of that over the run and this issue has two stories that work out well and one that doesn't click for me all that well. Which is a really good ratio overall when you get down to it. The variety is the real plus here and getting to see so many different things continues to make me happy. I do hope they'll find more ways to step out of the familiar box and do some completely new takes, but just showing off short-form storytelling for Sonja in her natural habitat is quite a lot of fun and worth the price of admission.

    RED SONJA: BLACK, WHITE, RED #7 is another fine entry in the series with three tales showcasing unique adventures for Red Sonja. Contrary to typical anthologies, there isnt a lemon in the bunch, but the overall art is stronger than the inconsistent writing. Read Full Review

    While there have definitely been better installments of this anthology thus far, this issue definitely has some clear highlights. Read Full Review

    In a story that has ties to Sonja's childhood, Sonja fights off werewolves in the forest to return the body of a nun she knew in her youth to be burned in a temple in “Unbowed.” And wounded Sonja makes a stand against a group of barbarians on a snowy mountainside in “Blood on Snow.” Read Full Review

    Another pretty damn good issue of this series, even if it wasn't quite up to the standards of #6 overall. Three great artists this time with very different styles and some original ideas for the stories. The best overall IMO was 'Unbowed', a brilliant display of Sonja's physical endurance and loyalty to those who made her into the woman that she is. It showed scenes from Sonja's childhood, which is something we seldom see in the comics outside of her parents being killed. Ron Marz wrote a more conventional story but did it really well, whilst Amy Chu's tale was a different concept but showed how the She-Devil's able to think on her feet; Amy has always said that Sonja's greatest asset is her adaptability.

    Marz/Colak: 8/10
