That's meant to be him right, with the loincloth and tanned skin? Good way to do a cameo, in a non distracting way.

Jesus Sonja, if you're having that much of an existential crisis just go to a shittier kingdom. I'm sure Khitai or Shem or Aquilonia or any of the wild wastes of the world has some adventure in it.

wait.. was it relaunched AGAIN?
>>
>>78962075
A new writer took over. and they want to start fresh
>>
>>78961995

Oh this isn't bad, it's just boring as shit and is not something that compels you to want to keep reading.
>>
>>78962177
Agreed
>>
>>78961461
That was kinda meh, the safe kind of meh too
>>
>cover up a blatant fanservice character
really? they couldn't give us just this one?
>>
>>78962498
That nothing compare.

>>78961995
And Bombshells is probably good because she can do whatever the fuck she wants.
>>
>>78962735
True.
>>
>>78962665
And to make it worse, it's going to be written by Kate Leth.

>>78964669
Oh fuck.

>>78961652
What is up with that brown rectangle in front of the throne chair?
>>
>>78962665
Well it is a massive improvement over her previous design, how that thing stayed around for so long if beyond anyone's comprehension.
>>
>>78965170
No idea.

>>78962665
Nigga, that's Claire Redfield.
Up to the fucking crossbow and the golden wing things on the back.

>>78961779

>If I were Queen Sonja, I would have all sorts of exciting adventures and trysts and fun

I think I would rather read about Queen Sonja, to be honest.
>>
>>78967611
Much better
>>
>>78967479
The crossbow doesnt fix her.
>>
>>78961971
Drinking and fighting. Usual stuff you'd expect a wandering warrior to do.
>>
if they were going to cover Red Sonja up, they should have just went all the way and gave her actual, somewhat sensible armor.

this is the worst of both worlds: still stupidly impractical and desperately trying to ride the coat-tails of the tumblr comic movement.
>>
>>78962498
>>78972127
You guys know she was covered up most of the time before this, right? But wait, of course not. No one reads Red Sonja comics before they talk about them.
>>
>>78972582
you're probably right, but you sound like a dick who gets mad about trivial things.
>>
Eh, not BAD, but not anything special. Pretty safe, tame, sword and sandals stuff.
>>
>>78972827
You mean like getting mad at comic books I don't read? :^)
>>
>>78964669
I can get behind the redesign, but my interest dies with her on the book.
>>
>>78965170
>>78967190
Looks as if it was meant as a block for inner monologue that went unused.

Yeah, pretty uninspired all told. I like Red as a character and this version that looks more like she is described in the books is nice, but I expect more carnage with my Sonja. She's not very "red" in this, but maybe she will be?
>>
>>78962665
Is this a trace of some 90's artist? I remember this same face and pose in one of the SDCC event books. Except the woman had major tits showing and had a gun. Around 97 or 98
>>
>>78962498
I really dig the resdesign, personally.
>>
>>78974332
Well, the whole issue here was banking on subverting her usual activities. Every time there was about to be action it was all quickly countered and played down, mostly for comedy. It's not a really bad direction to go for a first issue, but as you said, uninspired. Maybe it'll get better with more length as the story arc finishes, but I doubt it.
>>
>>78961461
Honestly surprised that with covering up her chest that in turn, her chest is still the same size more or less.

Also scars are for TOUGH STRONG GRRLS.

This is just pretty bland and they expect the same of their newly intended audience.

It wasn't really boring until the last pages, Sonja being compelled to travel and explore hyperboria would be more fun than one more wannabe game of thrones plot.

>cover up a blatant fanservice character

Have you ever read a Red Sonja comic? She's covered more often than not.
>>
>>78972582
>>78973020
You know Red Sonja didn't start off as a comic book character right?
Of course not, because that would imply you do something else that partake in childish hobbies.
>>
>>78961875
Why is this allowed? The perspective on that arm is bloody wrong.
>>
>>78976108
Seriously? Writers nowadays even have to write female BARBARIANS like your average so-quirky, sarcastic, failing millennial?

It's one thing when they shit on their own company's created characters, but to do so on the legacy of actually great writers is just madness. Hopefully ISIS takes their company's name as an invitation.
>>
>>78977314

Confirmed for never having read Sonja comics.

You're like those Tumblr retards who praise Harley Queen for having "a mad relationship". Fuck off, idiot.
>>
>>78977710
>Confirmed for never having read Sonja comics.

I just read one you cretin.

Have you read any Howard books? Or does it have too much words in it?
>>
>>78977116
Red Sonja did start off as a comic book character though. She never actually existed in prose form beyond that "Song of Red Sonja" nonsense. And are you really trying to imply pulp stories are any less childish than comic books?
>>
>>78978070
>She never actually existed in prose form beyond that "Song of Red Sonja" nonsense.
>she never actually existed before that part I say doesn't exist because I say so

Ok champ.

>>78978070
>And are you really trying to imply pulp stories are any less childish than comic books?
Modern comics? Yes, absolutely. They are just one inch above gossip magazines in terms of "literature" for stupid people nowadays.
>>
>>78978070
>>78978131
I just noticed you actually meant "Song of Red Sonja" as an actual title. No, Sonja/Sonya was an actual Howard's character, mostly the same except that, instead of swords, she killed with guns.
And even the comic character is still set in Howard's universe, it still uses Howard's creations.
>>
>>78978209
>>78978131
>>78978070
>>
>>78978209
>>78978326
So I got the Song of Red Sonja part mixed up.

>>78978131
>>she never actually existed before that part I say doesn't exist because I say so

The point was that she was a nonentity before she was created for the comics. Everything people know about the character didn't come from Howard himself.
>>
>>78978509
>The point was that she was a nonentity before she was created for the comics. Everything people know about the character didn't come from Howard himself.

That's a stupid argument, that's like saying Stoker's Dracula doesn't matter because his portrayals in movies are that much more famous.
>>
>>
>>78978547
But that's not what's being said. Dracula was a fully realized character, so you usually trace all other interpretations back to the original. Just like with Conan, there can be several interpretations, but no matter what, REH's stuff will always be the "true" Conan. Sonja doesn't have that going for her. All she has is an offhand mention in one story, with everything "iconic" about her coming after the fact. Even Valeria had more going for her in the one story she appeared in, and honestly, I don't know why she was never used more, since she was basically Blond Red Sonja.
