My Bio
I'm a relatively old fogey who's been into superhero comics since the very early 80s ... I loved Spider-Man before then but 'Secret Wars' was the series that REALLY turned me into a comics nut. I loved drawing as a kid and won several art prizes at school but lost my enthusiasm for it in my teens when art became too much of a science for me, learning about three-point perspective and shading and such like.

I remained a big comics fan, at one point having a collection of over 3000 comics, and posting regularly on www.herochat.com but I was focussed on other things at the time, little unimportant things like getting married and having a daughter and stuff. Then, a few years back, I got wind that my all-time favourite comic artist, George Perez, was coming to a con in the UK. Fans of George will know that his eyesight's deteriorated badly in the past few years, so I wanted to see him while he was still able to travel. I decided to pick up my pencil again for the first time in nearly two decades to draw him a pic and show my appreciation for him, and I haven't stopped since!

I've much more serious now about my pictures than I was as a kid but drawing is now my number one hobby and I go crazy if I'm not working on something! I try to alternative between colour, grayscale and black and white, between pen, pencil and colour marker pics, and between comic art, TV, cartoon and video game fanart, more realistic pics using photos for reference and the odd animal drawing here and there. As my daughter grows up, though, I find myself drawing more and more pictures for her to stick up on her wall! She's turning into a really good artist herself!

Anyhoo, dat's me. Pleased to meetcha and what not.

SPOILERS below I’m going ahead and assuming that @redsonjaart won’t be doing a review of this issue or will only be doing a very short one. However, please go and check out his other reviews of Red Sonja comics on his page. I have to admit that when I first heard about this series, I wasn’t particularly interested. A slew of Red Sonja titles had been announced around the same time and the amount of monthly Sonja material seemed to be approaching critical mass … having a series about different Sonjas from different places in space and time, many with colour coding, seemed to be taking it to the extreme. While I’m familiar with Pasquale Qualano from his previous Sonja stories, I had no experience with the writer Christopher Hastings but his work on ‘Gwenpool’ amongst other titles indicated that this could just be a quirky comedy-fest. It felt like Red would barely get any space in the title as well, with ten or so main characters. I’m happy to say that I was wrong on all

So, here we are … the final issue of Amy Chu’s run on ‘Red Sonja’. I’ve enjoyed this probably more than any other Red Sonja run before it. There has been the odd ‘off-issue’, Sonja spent many of the early issues less central than I’d have liked and we haven’t found out much about Sonja’s past. It’s been a magical run overall, though, with superlative art from Carlos Gomez and others and just a deep sense of fun … breezier  than most Sonja runs but that’s OK. Amy’s interest in sci-fi and time travel has manifested itself and she’s brought back the magic a
