  • Received Red Sonja #0 today!!

    I just received Red Sonja #0 today and just wanted to thank everyone involved. This comic's debut is right up there with Dark Horse's Conan #0 from a few years back. Not only was the art darn right sexy, but everything else was top notch. I bought both the Black and White cover versions and I continue to peek at them once in awhile.

    25cents for such quality cannot be beat.. People will no doubt be instantly addicted just like me.

    I really look forward to the actual series , and hope that the current crew can stick together for a long long time. Keep it up people.

    Thanks for your time.

        I just finished reading Red Sonja and it was far better than I expected. Both art and story are great. She is definitely a match for Conan. But she is much nicer to look at. I already have her added to my pull list.

          It was a good read, and far better than the Dark Horse Conan 25 cent story. I really enjoyed it, but didn't quite understand the ending. Did she slaughter every person in the town except the barkeep woman (ie only tree left standing?), and if so why was the chained woman still alive at the end?

            I also did not quite get the ending.

            However, elusive and enigmatic elements lends to the mystique of Red Sonja.

            I am so glad they have brought her back!

              Disappointing, I am afraid is all I can say. It's not really my cup of comics, but was given a free copy so the very least I could do is read the damn thing. Plot was full of stereotypes and pretty slim on characterization. However the art was really troublesome. From the first page to the last this artist can't draw one thing straight. For example on second page the arms are in awkward position when walking - they look very unnatural. Third page was totally unclear to me until I read more: it's not clear from the panel placement what is happening. Some pages later we see people walking in air! Throughout, the artist can't really get the sense of action, of movement: eating of bread, talking or even the battle scenes they all look like static pictures with no correlation to one another.
              But the most idiotic thing was when they disarm her, now why would they step aside and then attack her with arrows from distance, instead of just killing her on the spot. Makes no sense to me.

              The colorists are no better: the best they thought of is to color everything in selection of red colors? Whoa! Perhaps they had a difficult job of trying to make up for artists mistakes. Since I absolutely hate unimaginative computer lettering (so trendy these days that you can't even escape it in indy comics) I can't say a good word about anything in the comics. The cover? I guess it's ok.

              On the other hand the collections of old Red Sonja comics look pretty interesting: cool design (although copied from Dark Horse). Still unsure what remastered coloring means - if that's adding these awful computer colors then I am not buying it. In any case I guess I won't be buying new Red Sonja in the future unless someone again gives me a free copy (I somewhat doubt this).

              Anyway, just my opinion on the comic.

                She chained the barkeep woman to the tree (ah symbols). Yes, it's very unclear like everything else - but if you look at the second to last panel you can see the chain to the head that has a scarf(?). If the #0 issue is anything to go by, the later issues will have to be studies for months to decipher what is happening in them, unless the writer starts giving subtitles.

                  It's nice to see some other people getting excited about the series, and also nice to see some who don't. If anyone from Dynamite is listening to us, the comic can only get better and better as time passes.

                  Thanks for all the comments.

                    I don't think they did step aside after they disarmed her. My interpretation was that Jessa took her weapons, and the rest of them had the job of killing her and weren't near her to do so.

                    Did she slaughter every person in the town except the barkeep woman (ie only tree left standing?)

                    No. If you look at the second to last pane you'll see Sonja (presumably) in the distance on horseback leading away what's (presumably) of line of children. She starts off with a horse in Red Sonja #1. I think she killed all the cultists though - and burnt the town down.

                    What's with the dagger and the goat at the end?

                      If you look at the first panel they are entering the bar through the door, the barkeep is then disarming her (now why would she let herself be disarmed), then the wariors with bow and arrows are on next page aiming and firing arrows. For all this time those guys are still at the front door basically waiting until she is ready to fight. Then she throws the dagger at something and all of sudden everything is engulfed in a huge fire.

                      No. If you look at the second to last pane you'll see Sonja (presumably) in the distance on horseback leading away what's (presumably) of line of children. She starts off with a horse in Red Sonja #1. I think she killed all the cultists though - and burnt the town down.
                      Ha, ha now I see this. It's funny.

                      That's a goat????

                        I *think* so. On the last page, bottom left, there's certainly a furry creature lying in a pool of its own blood with a dagger in its neck. Is that Sonja's knife?

                          Red Sonja comics look great!

                          I really enjoyed Red Sonja #0 and the covers shown in Previews look great!
                          This will be a can't-wait-to-read-next-issue book.

                            I just re-read issues #0 - 6.

                            So, does #0 take place right after issue 6?

                              Nope, it's a rat. Yep, it's Sonja's knife.

                              Gudday agentalbert! No, #0 takes place before #1. It's a little intro-type comic to set the scene for the story which follows.
