One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Queen Sonja #13
BAD THING: The inking and coloring on this issue is sub-par. It seems, at times, like whole pages were colored in and lined with a Sharpie so as to obscure the incomplete nature of the art.
GOOD THING: There is a fairly good story here, still being told in flashback (though we are barely reminded of this fact) of Sonja telling of how she did once truly love a man. And as we see in this issue, Sonja did spend what she thought might well be her last night alive with him, since he did satisfy the terms of her oath.
The Final Verdict: Oddly inked artwork obscures a surprisingly touching tale (for this genre, at least) of young love and old regrets.
