Raven returns! In a distant, hidden forest, Sonja finds Scathach's other chosen warrior has turned over a new leaf and renounced violence. Can Sonja do the same? Offered a chance to have friends, family, and a life without the sword, Sonja begins to see the course of her life change. But when a group of mercenaries determined to bring Raven to justice enter the mix, Sonja discovers that perhaps the only course her life can ever take is one of violence and tragedy!

    Noah Salonga has done a lot of work on similar titles (Red Sonja, Xena, and Wolverine), and his experience shows very strongly here. Salonga is a fine artist with good sensibilities about how his artwork will compliment the story. Dynamite will doubtless use Salonga for more titles in the future; I hope that he will continue to spend time in the Sword and sorcery titles. His work in this area has been and continues to be outstanding. Read Full Review

    If you're a Sonja completest, here you go. If you're a casual Sonja reader or this is your first time with red, you'd be better served reading an issue of the ongoing monthly series written by Gail Simone. Read Full Review

    I think that this might of and could have been a good work had not so much attention been applied to the Sanctuary itself. I recognize what Mason was doing, I just don't know if he hit the mark with it really. Still, it is written well enough to fall under the "OK" aspect. There is no mind blowing revelation here. But, it plays for a reasonable read that is nowhere near the level of sucktom that I have seen in other versions of Red Sonja. All in all, a decent try. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jun 18, 2014

    This issue is a disappointment as there are some major themes that are interesting when it comes to the roving loner that is Red Sonja. The themes are there and that's commendable, and the art works for the most part too — the comic doesn't succeed overall though. Read Full Review
