This is the gift that keeps on giving!
you’re bad, very bad.
Her squishied boob makes me cry.
At least her nipples are well-protected.
Awesome cover. May the last thing I ever see gets close to this.
She might do more damage to the villain by hitting him with her boobs than with the sword.
At least she’s got more armor than Conan.
. . . really, really bad boob job.
PS: Ok, sure, “really, really bad boob job” is pretty much redundant because IMHO *all* elective boob jobs are inherently bad. But still . . . even on a scale of craptacular to “the horror, the horror,” this one is “the horror” times infinity.
slow news week?
Actually…it IS a slow news week.
1. I should have put “news” in quotes and
2. it was rhetorical
Rather redundant, I’d think. Most she-devils do have one.
So, what is that big hand grabbing for?
And what’s that shadowy shape in the background?
The design would have been better with a close-up shot of Sonja in mid-swing, with the viewer being the target of her wrath.
How does she keep her hair out of the way when fighting?
Remember, do not confuse this title with *snicker* Giant Size Red Sonja. (Hey… if Marvel and Dynamite can do a Red-Sonja/Spider-Man crossover, howabout a Giant Size Sonja Meets the Man-Thing?
“howabout a Giant Size Sonja Meets the Man-Thing? ”
I think one would need a Giant Size Man-Thing in order to handle a Giant Size Red Sonja… preferably in an “Omnibust” edition.
I take it she’s about to slice the guy who made her tiny armor in half.
With those fake breasts bolted onto that masculine-yet-boyish physique, I’d have to say it’s “She-Devil With A Penis”
Maybe I was being too hasty in fantasizing about that jackhammer position that I was wanting to try out ….
Let’s blame Big Apple Conventions for these evil covers!!!!
Is there an Art Director or something at Dynamite?
By the look on her face I think she just saw what a terrible outfit she’s wearing and how badly her anatomy was mangled.
Is it me, or is her right leg rather alarmingly twisted and severed? And I think her arms might reach well below her knees were she standing.
Still, were I whatever is attached the floating foreground hand, I’d be pretty terrified to see that come flying at me. It’s clearly broken and insane. And desperately in need of pants.
That just doesn’t wanna compute. It’s painfully badly composed..& posed. Yikes.
All the paintey effects can’t mask the poor constuction underneath… That’s what you get when you hire guys who ‘came’ to their ‘art’ through Frazetta, by way of Vallejo, by way of Jusko, by way of etc. (5th generation copyist) instead of learning about such things as anatomy in art school or any decent drawing course. All surface finish, no substance.
Boobs like that are a big turn-off.
Boobs?! I thought those were a couple of cheese danishes she was carrying around for after the fight!
Well, okay, it panders. I think it’s a very well painted cover, but her arms DO look a little too long.
The guy’s hand in the foreground looks like it might belong to an urban comic artist and not a Mongolian marauder. Where’s the knuckle hair, the scars, the evidence of harsh life…
And where is the evidence of HER hard life? oh, puleeese.
Can we see all the photos from the artist’s session with that Sonja model? I would like to examinnnne themmmm
This is so sad on so many levels. The others were cheap shots, but this is in the gutter.
What is so sad? That I said that I would like to see the photo reference? Or am I misunderstanding..
well, they already covered her backside, so, now let’s go to the front! lol!
that hand placement is priceless and the cover itself is awful.
Who knew that Red Sonja would even make it to 40?
That’s one attack position that strikes fear and horniness into the enemy.
i hate hate hate cheesecake in comics, i feel it makes us all look pathetic. that being said, Heidi, weren’t you praising Betty Page and her influence just a few days ago?
Jacob: That ain’t cheesecake. It’s something plastic that kinda looks like cheesecake and yet, is nevertheless not cheesecake. It’s kitsch of the worst order — almost as if Rob Liefeld stopped making everyone look constipated, started drawing feet and took up painting. No matter what ya do, it’s still crap.
I like it. I won’t buy it, but I like it.
