    RED SONJA: THE SUPERPOWERS #1, available from Dynamite comics on January 13, 2021, is everything I want out of a Red Sonja comic with a twist. This series exemplifies 100% pulp adventure in all the best ways, and I want more of it. This is a highly recommended read. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Jan 14, 2021

    This first issue closes on a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that will definitely have you wanting to come back and see resolved. Dan Abnett weaves and exciting and intriguing tale, exquisitely rendered by Jonathan Lau and Andrew Dalhouse. The dialogue is unique to each player, making them interesting and distinct from each other rather than interchangeable generic heroes. And despite my misgivings as to the "down the road" impact of having Red Sonja be part of a pluralverse with superheroes interacting now and then -- those of you who've seen Conan join The Avengers know what I'm talking about -- I heartily encourage you to pick up this issue and jump on the ride. This one's worth it. Read Full Review

    This was a genuine surprise. I thought I would like it, but it surpassed my expectations. Dan Abnett could have phoned this in, but clearly put a lot of thought and effort in, as did Jonathan Lau, and it pays off nicely. Do yourself a favour and give this a read. Read Full Review

    I may sound a tad glib or sarcastic over the use of the same idea; I guess I get a little disappointed in the first instance. Is it that the first attempt wasn't great and needs a do-over? Part of this is due to the constant re-usage of a theme from the Big Two. With Abnett I tend to think that he maybe looks at an idea and rather than settle, things, how similar situations can be taken down a different route with different characters, giving readers not one, but two great stories.
