Scars Mean We're Alive

Marc Andreyko & Aneke & Juanan Ramirez, “Legenderry Red Sonja” (Dynamite, 2015)
Sometimes the elevator pitch tells you exactly what you need to know.  In this case, it’s Red Sonja and the Bride of Frankenstein fight Dr Moreau. And it’s set in a Steampunk milieu.

Either that sounds great fun, or not.  If the answer is not, this is not the book for you.  For everyone else, this book is a lot of fun. 

The art is light and a touch manga inspired.  It keeps the story from getting too dark—after all there’s plenty of necromancy powered by SCIENCE! that could drag things down.

On the whole, this doesn’t really measure up to Gail Simone’s recent work on Red Sonja, but it’s still a lot of fun.
