Comic Book Review: Red Sonja: The Black Tower by Frank Tieri

  I love the character of Red Sonja. But I wasn’t really into this version of her. 

I’m not sure what it was. Maybe it was the whole idea of the story. Maybe the writing. It’s hard to put my finger on it. 

Everything happened so quickly. It was like an epic story was forced to fit into a short story. It jumps right into the action, but it feels like sequences were cut out of a film. The whole thing felt rushed – the story, the writing, even the art. Almost as if they didn’t have enough time to tell the story, or put the whole story together. 

And the dialogue is a bit tedious and cliche. 

And the whole storyline? It just didn’t seem to fit a Red Sonja story. 

Recommended maybe only for the most die-hard red Sonja fan. 

Thanks to NetGalley, Diamond, and IDW for a copy in return for an honest review.
