The saga of Red Sonja continues, but is the series still going strong after 66 issues? Read on to find out.
The official description from Dynamite:
A sword for hire. A client with ready cash. A world full of adventure and possibility. What could possibly go wrong? If Red Sonja’s history is any indication, plenty. A new chapter begins for the She-Devil with a Sword.
Red Sonja is off at sea, preparing for the next chapter in her life, but unbeknownst to her there is a powerful monster that lurks in the skies above. Can the She-Devil with a Sword combat a creature that summons the elements? Considering she’s the title character and this story has not been advertised as the death of Red Sonja and there’s a sister series that takes place in the future entitled Queen Sonja, I think it’s a safe bet that she makes it out just fine.
Form the rough seas to the ferocious shores, Eric Trautmann does a good job allowing the story to flow naturally. Characters are lively and fun to read, and in the thick of battle the dynamic strength of our heroine comes to the forefront in a way that is undeniably pleasing. There are however some minor moments where the script feels slightly bogged down by extended narration.
Marcio Abreu handles the art, and the book has moments where the panels look simply stunning but there are times where characters look off. Our heroes can be detailed and formed perfectly, but for every three good panels there seems to be at least one that looks rushed. And on top of that there are moments where our main character’s assets are overly exaggerated.
In short the story is simple, it’s not too deep but it is an exciting read. If you’re in the market for a good adventure book Red Sonja #67 might just be for you. Recomended.
