The Art of Red Sonja – Various

Art of Red SonjaThis is a superb art book that collects many of the covers from Dynamite’s re-launch of the Red Sonja franchise. The oversize nature of this publication means that you can see the art at its best. Most of the covers are actual size and printed on sturdy, gloss paper. Some pages contain multiple covers and a few show you the original sketches or work in progress. There are also some double pages from wraparound covers.

There is a history of the character with plenty of quotes from those that have been involved in her creation and evolution. There is quite a bit about Robert E. Howard’s life and career to start things off and we go right up to the modern writers and artists working on the titles when this book was released.

Thumbs Up!
