Sometimes in your comics, you just want something different than the typical superhero comic that pervades the store shelves for the better part of the last three to four decades. That is why a comic like the Legenderry Red Sonja is a great palate cleanser - it’s fun, ridiculous, and has all the old-school charm of the classic pulps.

 

What I liked the most about this issue is that Andreyko gets the “rescuing lost lover” portion of this story over with almost immediately. This issue does center around the rescue of D’Nar from his ghastly father Gath by Sonja and Tesla (his love), but it does so relatively quickly and moves on to the meat of this arc: namely the presence of an element that poisons the seas and is desperately desired by Gath.

 

In the mix is also Tesla’s father, the crime lord, who is still looking for his daughter and is being, from what it seems, manipulated from the shadows. This will more than likely play out in future issues, but for now, it was simply an added page or two.

 

In all, this series is shaping up to be a fun read every month that doesn’t take up to much time, but is still pretty rewarding as a read.
