'Red Sonja: The Black Tower' is about a character that is popular in comics again, but this story feels like a bit of a set back.
In the city of Lur, a mysterious black tower has emerged, and we are told that it's existence will cause the death of Red Sonja. Before it does, she will have to deal with some idiot men who need a lesson. Unfortunately, she leaves one alive and he vows his revenge. You know that will come back to haunt her. We see the town over the years as chaos reigns and a strange religion crops up worshiping the tower. Will Sonja die at the hands of the Black Tower?
This was a gimmicky story with a gimmicky twist. Also, it brought in another genre that didn't really work for me with the story. The art is the shining light on this work. We've had some sharp, smart stories about Red Sonja lately, but, unfortunately, this wasn't one of them.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Dynamite Entertainment, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
