Red Sonja is arguably the most famous sword-and-sorcery heroine. First created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith, Sonja was based on the work of Robert E. Howard, famed creator of Conan the Barbarian. Dynamite Entertainment, publishers of the Red Sonja comic series, recently brought Gail Simone and Walter Geovani on board to chronicle a new chapter in the adventures of the She-Devil with a Sword. Thanks to an awesome Comixology sale coinciding with Dynamite’s 10th anniversary, I was able to grab the first six issues of the series, titled the “Queen of Plagues” arc, for a massive discount. With my love of fantasy stories and Simone’s previous work, would this new series succeed in wowing me?
