The plot thickens from last issue, with Sonja and her current employer - the scholar Merisan - selling off the journal Sonja retrieved from a deadly tomb. The two have a good working relationship but an easy life playing bodyguard for a librarian doesn't sit well with the adventurous Sonja. Luckily - or unluckily from another point of view - Sonja's life quickly ceases being easy and Sonja must cope with the latest gang of bounty hunters seeking the latest price on her head as well as the magical curse she unwittingly acquired.
The script by fantasy author Peter V. Brett is exciting and well-paced. I think this may be one of the few sword-and-sorcery stories (let alone Red Sonja stories) I've ever read that passes the Bechdel Test. Jack Jadson matches the material with his artwork, proving a great illustrator of expressions as well as action. If you've never read a Red Sonja comic before, this mini-series would be a fine one to start with.
