The nation of Sogaria has a new ruler, a Queen and her name is Sonja of Hyrkania. How she rose from being a She-Devil with a sword to a She-Devil with an army starts the initial story arc of this new ongoing series from Dynamite. Surely if Conan can do it, there's no reason why Red Sonja can't. The solicitation for has mentioned of a "new thrilling event for ." The Dynamite solicitation for Red Sonja #49 did say: "This is it as writer Brian Reed sends off his Red Sonja in style and Dynamite plans a momentous event to occur in as the welcome writer Joshua Ortega and the return of artist Mel Rubi in the thrilling 'Queen Sonja' event! Be there!" By these we can safely conclude . Writer Joshua Ortega indeed improves on the narrative flow but it is the artwork of Mel Rubi that stands out. Literally as bloody good as ever. Also immediately obvious is the fact that Red Sonja's chain mail bikini has now become a micro string chain mail bikini. From a hundred or so interlocking rings her front loin flap now sports at most twenty-five, and the once approximately thirty rings covering each of her breasts are now reduced to a perfect triangle of nine rings each. I suppose in those ancient times the higher a female warrior goes up the ranks of mobility the lesser her body covering becomes. Not that we're complaining. In fact we hope to see those loin flaps flap more often (I won't say anything about Jackson Herbert's cover in issue #1). All Minutemen cover-to-cover scans.
