Princess Zaria of the Belanj Valley figures prominently in the first issue of Invincible Red Sonja, from Dynamite.

Her long blonde flowing, her mouth constantly talking, she plays an increasingly important role in this, a new arc of Red Sonja. Award-winning fan-favorite writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner bring us a sword and sorcery adventure that is worth it’s salt!

It’s wonderfully witty and full of pirate dread, this issue, illustrated and coloured by Moritat. Sonja’s look varies according to her mood; sometimes a covergirl, sometimes covered in blood. Plenty of swinging sword scenes, shiploads of magic, plus the terror of the gorgeous sirens of hell. It’s a wild ride, with plenty of girl power action, environmental mayhem, and the twists and turns of a great script. Letters by Dave Sharpe.

Dynamite, Invincible Red Sonja #1, $3.99 for 22 pages of content, Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
