I like it...-thumbs up-
The poor guy in the blue suit looks terrified!!! ;D

He's my piss-poor attempt at Shia LeBeouf!
Read #6 this week. Pretty good!

I was gonna say. I still liked #2 best in the series but this was probably the most well executed issue. Great action and the first big surprise of the series for me
I liked how it took a combined effort to save the day.
Looking forward to the road trip...

Next ish,  Sonja has a punch up with a biker gang. Carlos has posted pics on Instagram. Comic's 2 weeks late unfortunately.
Two WEEKS?!?
Shit.





I broke Scourge. Poor Scourge.

Make that 3. Dyamite's back to its old tricks. Dunno whether it'a writer or art problem or what. The next issue's meant to be out 2 weeks afterwards ... yeah, right.

I am up to the point of Sonja and Max messaging Kulan Gath with an up yours. Sonja doing that while also sticking her tongue out makes me laugh.

Quite enjoying this series so far. To the point where Sonja is becoming one of my more favored characters.

It's awesome. At first, I was all, like 'ZOMG, they stripped Sonja of all her dignity' but actually that backward baseball cap look is TOTALLY Red Sonja. In the other pics posted, in the bar and on her bike, Sonja's in a leather jacket and jeans but what would KILL it would be if Sonja's basically wearing her scalemail bikini and biker boots with the baseball cap, kinda like Ashley Massaro's old outfit in WWE.

Looks to be loads of fun ... a fight on the road, a fight in a roadside bar and now a bit of shooting practice in the desert.

New issue's out today. Dynamite have done really well to minimise the inevitable delay after last issue was three weeks late.

I thought #7 was a great start to the new storyline overall. I wish they'd stuck to one artist, instead of using 3, but clearly Carlos Gomez was having problems with the deadline. Going on how many pics he's been posting on Instagram, it looks like he'll be handling ALL the art for the next few issues and has got his shit together. That said, the third artist in #7 was really good, I thought. My other big criticism of #7, apart from the story switching instantly from night to day and back for no reason, was Carlos once again bunging in a giant splash page of Sonja posing, which could've been better used for action. There was an opportunity for a great bar fight between Sonja and the 4 bikers in #7 but it basically consisted of Sonja knocking a guy's knife out of his hand with his sword. That was it.

OTOH, snatching a thrown knife out of the air in a dark graveyard without looking more than made up for it.

Out today?
Great to know; i wouldnt have bothered checking for at least a few weeks!

You've a good point on the action, a bar fight would have been nice. Still, she wound up taking them out pretty definitively anyway, down the road, which is good.

I think her musing about changing her name to 'Red Sonja, Crazy Bitch with a Sword' may be the funniest thing i'd read all month!

Yeah, that was good.

Amy Chu loves using the word 'bitch' in her scripts, it turns up again in #8, which I've just read. My overall thought on '8' is 'Meh', it's got 'filler issue' written all over it. One page of action and that's it, although Max features more heavily this month. Good art throughout by Gomez, funny script and Amy works hard on differentiating Holly from Spike but nothing really outstanding about this issue IMO. Amy reminds us how much Sonja likes hot baths and rare steak though.

I rather enjoyed this issue!
The Max subplot's looking promising.
Sonja trying/not liking guns was neat.
The road trip vibe is doing a good job at bringing Holly & Spike's personalities, too.
While i wouldve preferred more action too, it overall read smoothly.
The reaction to the stolen Lambo? Hilarious.
Wondering about this 'wizard' professor's role in this.
The FBI's involvement is nice, that needs to be expanded.
Wondering if the showdown with the gang is going to give us a bunch of generic bad guys, or a memorable leader.

I think the gang issue is just something good to kill a few issues while we see what Max is up to. I have no idea why Sonja's headed to New Mexico when the gang boss was said to be in Amarillo

Next ish looks like it's gonna have a fucking humdinger of a fight, though, between Sonja and Las Aranhas ... and Las Aranhas won't be walking away. Sonja finds the prof in #11 according to the solocit ... my buddy on deviantART reckons the prof will turn out to be either Kulan Gath or a time-displaced Max

That last would be kind of a let down for me, i'm hoping for a new character.
I mean if its written well all is goid, just my initial feeling on it.

New issue's out and it's the best since #6. The meat of the issue is Sonja taking on Las Aranhas in their own HQ.
