    If anything, this book seems to show that the idea of loss can be all consuming. The truth of the matter is that without Sonja's trails and tribulations, she wouldn't have become the person who she is today. Given it's a Halloween book, it is appropriate that the book features the pull of the ghosts fo those lost. Hopefully, come Thanksgiving or Christmas, Sonja will see that whilst loss and suffering can shape us, so to can recognition of success and the happiness that we find along the way, in each of our own journeys.

    'Savage Tales: Halloween Special' is a somber but heart-felt tale that gives Sonja another layer of humanity. It's a familiar story but written with such heart and illustrated so beautifully, that this one-shot is a must for any Red Sonja fan. While not exactly a "Halloween" story, 'Savage Tales' honors the dead with a mix of guilt and reverence just in time for Day of the Dead.  Read Full Review
