How to Wear a Chain-Mail Bikini in the Snow
Best known for her chain-mail bikini, Red Sonja has not exactly become a feminist icon ever since Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith first adapted Robert E. Howard's Depression-era pulp character into comics back in 1973. Thankfully, though, the "She-Dev...

I'd never even heard of Red Sonja before picking this up. Evidently, she's been around for a while?
Sorry, hardcore fan base!
Anyway, it was easy enough for a newbie like me to follow the story, so that has to count for something.
But since I'm not a big fan of the barbarian stuff, I'm reall...

While I’ve never heard of Red Sonja before, one look at the chainmail bikini and the sword tells you everything you need to know – she’s Conan the Barbarian without the Y chromosome! As for the story, there are nuances but it’s basically Red Sonja saves a kingdom from an invading army, ie. the st...

This is another new series for me. I enjoyed it but there was something missing. Instead of a series this felt like a one-shot and I wanted the story fleshed out more. There was a lot crammed into about 200 pages that I think could've just as easily been expanded to twice as many issues.

I don't know a thing about Red Sonja, other than that she's connected to Conan the Barbarian in some way (I don't really know anything about him, either) and that she wears that stupid scale armor bikini. Not something that I would normally be clamoring to read. But I really like Gail Simone, so...

When I opened this comic and saw the introduction by author Gail Simone, I was wary, as I misread her name and thought this was written by food critic Gail Simmons (which actually wouldn't be that weird when you consider that Anthony Bourdain wrote the graphic novel Get Jiro!, but I digress). So...

Gail Simone introduces Red Sonja Volume 1: Queen Of Plagues with the declaration that she "might actually be a barbarian lover in a superhero lover's clothing," and that's a pretty apt description of what's on display here. Making the move from superheroes to sword-and-sorcery, she manages to put...

OK, let's just get this off my chest: Red Sonja's costume is absolutely ridiculous and impractical. It's fanservice, and no amount of "But that's the way her character's costume ALWAYS has been" will convince me that wearing a chain mail bikini makes sense.
NOW, let's talk about how...

I tried to read this for Pink Taco week, I really tried. Did not finish.
For me as a kid, Red Sonja was indelibly associated with Brigitte Nielsen running around in that skimpy chain mail bikini, juggling her way through a masterpiece of cinematic superficiality. I can't even claim to have seen th...

I've heard of Red Sonja before, though only as a really sexist comic character that didn't sound at all appealing or interesting. I remember the arguments and debates around the SFWA Bulletin cover that was a tribute to Red Sonja in all her chain mail bikini glory: looking at it now, the cover it...
