A freed slave and former gladiator, Red Sonja has a fierce reputation, lethal skills, iron will, and high alcohol tolerance. In this first volume, they reveal her past as she comes to terms with some old demons as well as friends and foes.

Holy shit is this batter than the movie and I grew up with that wishing I could swing a sword. Harkening back to traditional sword and sorcery fantasy pulp comics, the art is crisp but weathered like reading an ancient scroll. The characters are interesting, funny, and powerful and I had a great time reading it. It’s awesome to see Red Sonja come back and come back strong. I tried not to put in too much plot as I think it would spoil the journey but this is totally worth picking up.
