Knocked off one star because my copy was MISSING about 10 pages (I'm assuming it's a defect and the TPB story wasn't just trimmed down from the original comics, though I haven't been able to find any info on this). Other than that, the art was nice but the story and panels (even within individual pages) really jumped around, and the dialogue was so bad I was worried I'd forgotten how to read.

Red Sonja, Osin and Suumaro awake the Old God Kaleval to enlist his aid. Sonja and Kaleval retrieve her father's sword from Hyrkania. And then they go to bed so that Sonja's flesh can be blessed like her soul is.

The demon Borat-Na Fori is born and its first thought is to kill Red Sonja. Its ultimate goal, though, is to build an army that will conquer the world for his father and master, the wizard Kulan Gath.

Issues 13-18 were apparently the ones that changed the world of Red Sonja for new fans and in my opinion it's true. The 'Rise of Kulan Gath' is a great story arc with tons of blood and beasts, and a little sex to boot. Probably the best Red Sonja volume I own as of now.

Red Sonja keeps hunting down malevolent cults and evil gods. The series reaches a climax here, but there are some problems. The plot is moving a little too fast, the Lovecraftian references seem to give way to a generic low fantasy "return of evil god" mix, and there don't seem to be any of the interesting side stories present in the previous volumes. The fact that the villain apparently has also appeared in x-men (among other places) is a little annoying (these comics salads bother me) but easi ...more
