Red Sonja / Conan by Victor Gischler

Conan is like an old friend.  I read about him in my teens and seeing a graphic novel about Conan AND Red Sonja was not something I could miss.  When the man organizing the mercenary soldiers says that they will fight to the death to pick a leader, Red Sonja comes forward.  So does Conan.  They agree to mutually lead the group of soldiers.  When a group of five or six men challenge them, they do what they do best.  Then they lead the remaining solders into battle.

Diamond Book Distributors and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published February 16th.

This is a tale of war and death but seeing Conan and Red Sonja in action is amazing, especially Red Sonja.  How can you not admire someone who wears almost no clothes but never gets a scratch on her?

You don't read these for literary value.  You read them because they're savages who fight and win and it makes a good story.

In this story, a nemesis from the past rises again.  He's come back and is determined to get even with Conan.  Watching how this all turns out was a good tale.  I'd read more graphic novels about Conan, the big barbarian.
