Official Description:

Join Dynamite Entertainment and Top Cow Productions as they bring two of comics most celebrated heroines together in one terrifying tale of loss and redemption. Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, and Sara Pezzini, the modern-day bearer of the Witchblade, must find a way to defeat a wickedly depraved being as old and dark as the cosmos in order to prevent the world from eternally becoming a true Hell on Earth. Witchblade/Red Sonja is written by Doug Wagner (The Ride, I.C.E.) with stunning interior art by Cezar Razek (Total Recall, Hack/Slash/Eva: Monster’s Ball).

My Take:

Well, first off I have to say thank you for the advanced copy of this comic.

Wow…this comic is something. It was not what I had hoped for, I know that both these characters are warriors, and I am familiar with Witchblade but not Red Sonja. I just found this story clichéd. It was just so not entertaining. This book is multiple comics, previously released, in graphic novel format. Ok first off, and this seems to be increasingly in these reviews of mine. Why the costumes, what’s the point in them, they’re warriors right? Don’t they need real armor, they can wear clothes and still look ‘sexy’. These are just impractical  And hello writers, guys aren’t the only people that read comics, women are increasingly (admitting to and actually) picking up these books to read, and throwing some back down in disgust. If these were real life women they would topple over and have severe back pains and not be able to warrior about because of their breasts. OK moving on. The story was weak, it was thin and there were many plot holes. The art was ok. It wasn’t always consistent, but it was ok to look at, I was just a bit disappointed in this book.
