    What a ringing endorsement, lol.


    But yeah, its okay. Pretty solid all around, but i think Russell is maybe still finding his feet a little. The arts a little sloppy in places. Might be the inking. I enjoyed Colaks work at Aftershock more so far.

    Ultimately, id just like to see it tighten up a bit, and to go in a direction a little less generic.

    Is this the same Red Sonja as Marvel's? By far the oddest origin of any character. She gets raped then some type of Goddess says she can't sleep with a man unless he beats her in combat. I wonder what the #MeToo movement would do about that.

    Well, it can be somewhat like Conan sometimes, just don't expect a lot of interaction between the two characters any time soon (since Marvel currently has the rights to Conan again).
    As for "better/worse", that often depends more on the writers than the characters.

    So I went & read 6 issues & I do like it!

    Writing/dialogue seems very modern but it works here. I'm genuinely liking the OTT villain & his interaction with his minions more than I like reading about Sonja. Yes, the artwork is atrocious in spots but I'm digging reading it.

    I've only read the first 2 but I liked them enough to stick with it.

    I'm often surprised just how much I like some of dynamites books.

    I'm enjoying it, but I'm a long time fan of the character, which is to say, I'm enjoying this as much as some of the more recent outings, and much more than others.
