Red Sonja #18 review

This is Gail Simone’s last issue of Red Sonja, which is a shame. Then again, it’s issue eighteen of what was going to be a six issue run, so I can’t complain but so much.

Legenderry: Red Sonja

Dynamite is continuing to follow up on the success of their Legenderry series with a few spin- offs. Last week was Vampirella, and now it’s Red Sonja’s turn. She’s a sort of swashbuckling pirate/adventurer in this version, and the re-imagining works. Sonja barely gets to The Big City (really, that’s what it’s called) before getting embroiled in a new adventure. A scientist is being hunted by a mysterious group, and the hunters are not exactly normal.
