Funny is not usually a word associated with Red Sonja comics, but Gail Simone's run on this title has been hilarious. Do not think this means this issue is lacking in action! Far from it! This is still Red Sonja, but it bares the unmistakable fingerprints of Simone's twisted hand.
Simone is well matched by artist Walter Geovani. Geovani is one of the finest artists working in the business today and there are few who can match him in the sword-and-sorcery department. He is also one of the few artists who manages the trick of making Sonja seem sexy without being sexualized.
If you've had the misfortune to have not been reading this book, this is a fine issue to start with. The only bad thing about this issue is that it marks the beginning of the end of the best run Red Sonja has seen in some time. Savor it while you can, readers! This is one to remember!
