Comic Book Review: Red Sonja / Conan: Blood of a God

cover80320-medium

Am I stupid? I don’t know – are all their comics like this?

In this comic, Conan and Red Sonja just didn’t seem like heroes. Both were willing to kill anyone for anything. Conan was as misogynistic as they come. I mean, I wasn’t expecting a feminist, but at least I thought he had some hero in him. But it didn’t come across in this book. They both seemed like muscle-bound jerks.

The art was good. And the story decent. Fantasy with magic and monsters – just what I like.

But I just can’t get past the fact that I didn’t feel like they were written about as sympathetic heroes.

Shouldn’t you like your protagonists?

Thanks to NetGalley and Dynamite Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.
