Red Sonja #78 starts, just how I like my comics to start. In the thick of things and with enough action to fill TWO blockbuster summer action movies!!

Brandon Jerwa continues this five part story line with a middle chapter that is chock full of story and action, and some pretty epic twists and turns. As this issue begins, we’re in the thick of battle between Sonja and her crew are battling the forces of the oncoming Lord Dracula. That’s right, kids. DRACULA. Yes, that one. Now, these two have battled before but never like this. This is a full out all hands on deck throw down between Sonja and Dracula. And it’s EPIC. This is one of the best issues of Red Sonja that I’ve read in a long time, and that’s saying something because I’ve certainly read my fair share of them. Some great story telling by Jerwa, here.

Sergio Fernandez Davila turns in another crazy-good issue here, art wise. He’s quickly becoming the water mark that Red Sonja artists will be held up to, in my opinion. Detailed, but not hyper, very kinetic, with some great page layouts and storytelling. In particular, Davila has a great talent for faces and expressions. Even though most of the expressions here are sheer terror, they really emote to the reader on what the characters are feeling, and that’s just plain and simple great work on the part of Davila.

Overall, I highly recommend this issue of Red Sonja. It’s got everything you need in both a Red Sonja comic AND a comic book in general. It’s a good time, it’s action packed, and in general, just a damn fine comic book.
