    THE INVINCIBLE RED SONJA #9 is possibly the strongest issue so far and an excellent way to build up to next months finale. The character interactions reflect a surprising amount of emotional weight, Red Sonja gets a new costume, and the last page sets up the potential for an explosive ending. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 22, 2022

    I'm excited to see how the team wraps up this storyline in the next issue. They've worked this over ten issues in a really great way so that there's a lot of build-up to events, characters that we're committed to and understand at this point, and a journey that has bonded us even closer with them as a whole. With it starting to whittle away at that because in the end it must be Sonja on her own once again, there are some expected elements but they unfold well and make sense for all. Sonja is an absolute delight throughout this and Moritat's artwork is generally fantastic, though there are a few panels that made me cringe. I loved his stuff with her looking out over the city, for example. I'm excited to see how they bring it to a close and what Zaria's future will be, and then to see where Sonja goes next. Really great Sonja storytelling here. Read Full Review

    It will be disappointing to see this hugely entertaining comic conclude next issue. Read Full Review

    It isn't so much "bad" as it is boring. What makes it subpar is the art, while consistent with the rest of the issues in this series, is just not good. Read Full Review

    Really fun entry in this series. Once again, the tight panels mean plenty of ground is covered in terms of plot advancement, and there's an excellent balance of action and chat/relaxation. Amanda Conner is clearly having a ball with the dialogue, throwing together as many outrageous OTT insults as she can and staying true to Sonja's roots without injecting a load of 21st century slang a la Gail Simone. Moritat's art isn't always detailed but he is as crazy with his posing, muscular anatomies and grimacing or leering facial expressions as Amanda is with her choice of words. A new colourist comes onboard this month and does a nicer job, generally laying off the browns and reds compared with previous issues but giving Sonja herself a deeper ta more

    This series started very strong but it's starting to drag.

    This arc started strong with so much potential, but it seemed the original idea was dropped for some reason. Only the first and the final few pages had progress to the story. Still interested, but feels like this was just an issue to let people know the series isn't cancelled.
