REVIEW: Red Sonja by Gail Simone

Red Sonja is one of the archetypical fantasy characters and a fountain for which hundreds of copycats have been created. She’s also a character younger than most people realize as it was not Robert E. Howard who created her (though he created her inspiration, Red Sonya of Rogatino) but comic book legend Roy Thomas in 1973. The character became immensely popular with her own series, “so bad it’s good” movie, and novels.
