Red Sonja #1

  1. An overly busy version of her original look in Conan 23/24. Why not go with that and give her arm and abdominal protection rather than this half arsed version which is neither fully protecting as the original or exotic like the bikini? Top it off with the idiot hair Artemis had in Wonder Woman's 90s period, to boot? I hated the 90s art in comics the first time and this just screams that time period. Top it off with the story ideas for the first acr- Hyrkanian Nazis! and this is not looking promising.

    Really, no story with Nazi/Fascist bad guys is anything but simplistic tripe 99.99% of the time. They're inevitably irredeemable bad guys beyond the level of the most one dimensional comic book villains since no sane writer wants the attachment of neo-Nazi apologist attached to their name and work through making any humanizing of the character motivations to come off as exculpation of that great unpleasantness from the first half of the 20th century.

    I am not looking forward to this.
