    This is the penultimate issue of this arc. We have gone back to the beginning of this arc where we saw an entranced Red Sonja forced to fight for her hated enemy. By the act of her remorseful adversary she is unwittingly freed. Now she can truly face her past. Read Full Review

    Moritat delivers some exciting visuals throughout the issue. There are great action beats filled with beautiful detail and the art perfectly captures the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Sonja's tale is a solid one and watching her struggle against being controlled make for some really great panels from Moritat as he captures her anger and frustration with it. The backstory exploring Belraq and events there in the past only fleshes things out more in the present, and has the impending arrival of Bahira all the more exciting to see play out. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing how the team brings this arc to a close. Read Full Review

    THE INVINCIBLE RED SONJA #5 fills in a lot of backstory on the character of Bahira and brings the first conflict with Brelaq to an unsatisfying close. While the issue is generally okay, the rushed, inconsistent art and overall lack of wit or charm make the series somewhat forgettable. Read Full Review

    Another great issue, the last few issues of this title have been consistently excellent. This is a really important chapter in the tale as we find out more about the prince of thieves Bahira and his past with Sonja and Erkhara, as well as the rest of the plot surging forward effectively. I've docked half a point because the art's a little inconsistent and some pages look more rushed than others but overall Moritat's done a great job again.
