Gail Simone’s tenure on Red Sonja began with a bang on the Queen of Plagues storyline. If you haven’t jumped on the Red Sonja bandwagon yet, this trade is a great starting point; Gail Simone’s relaunch gives us a peek into the She-Devil’s origins, weaving it into her first big plotline of the book.
I’ve been reviewing Red Sonja pretty faithfully here at WhatchaReading, but it’s nothing compared to the actual stories Gail Simone has to tell, accompanied by Walter Geovani’s exciting art. Browse and familiarize yourself – whet your appetite, if you will – and then pick up this trade, which collects issues 1-6 of Red Sonja.
Extras in this collection include an introduction by Gail Simone, Simone’s original Red Sonja #1 script, and the beautiful variant covers, by top female artists in the comic book industry: Jenny Frison (Angel); Nicola Scott (Teen Titans, Secret Six); Amanda Conner (Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre, Harley Quinn); Fiona Staples (Saga); Pia Guerra (Y: The Last Man); Ming Doyle (Mara); and more!
The book hits shelves today – make sure to add one to your stack of books when you pick your comics up! 5 out of 5 sword slashes!
