Book Review: The Art of Red Sonja

Book Review: The Art of Red Sonja

Here's a better look at this book compared to the page previews I posted earlier which were just from the front few pages.

The presentation format is similar to The Art of Vampirella, also from the same publisher Dynamite Entertainment. It includes the history before the gallery. There's no other commentary.

The selection here seems to have more finesse compared to the Vampirella art book. The covers are mostly printed at almost full page, with a few at two-third page sizes overlapping each other - better that than not included. It's mainly cover art. Besides a few dubious inclusion, most illustrations are very beautiful and detailed.

Some of the artists included are Adam Hughes, Alex Ross, Frank Cho, Jim Lee, Mel Rubi, JG Jones, Neal Adams and many more. Although the paintings are group by artists, they aren't arranged alphabetically. There's also no index so it's difficult to find pieces from any particular artist.

A worthy collection for Red Sonja fans.
