    SONJAVERSAL #8 tells a proper science fiction story about the last remnants of humanity fighting monsters, time, and starvation to find a new home after Earth is devastated. While the setting is about as far from sword & sorcery as you can get, the creators do an excellent job of maintaining the heart and soul of Sonja in a completely different context. While this is a stand-alone character spotlight, it seamlessly fits into a broader story tied to the first arc. Read Full Review

    While I'm still trying to get a handle on the whole series itself and some of the variants we've seen of Red Sonja, this is the issue that feels the most cohesive and coherent in its ability to really tell a story that makes sense. It has all the right pieces to bring it together Hastings has a better handle on this particular iteration as well as she has an almost kind of 80s science fiction rogue aspect to her personality while mixing with some fun anime-inspired mecha elements. Qualano's artwork is strong as always and I love his take on Sonja herself, but also the way our devilish character looks too. Definitely something that has me encouraged for more of the run.
