Red Sonja v3 #3 - Nestor Redondo art


Red Sonja v3 #3, 1983 - As invaders lay siege on the walled city of Alwazar, Red Sonja allies herself with its defenders. For a second time, Nestor Redondo provide the inks for Mary Wilshire's pencils/layouts, with spectacular results. Most impressive is the two-page panoramic spread of the city (pages 2-3). Redondo's detailed landscape adds grandeur and scale, setting the story's tone from the beginning. Curiously, the artist only inks the first 19 of 38 total pages, relinquishing the rest to Rudy Nebres, Danny Bulanadi and Akin & Garvey. This is number 2 of 2 Red Sonja v3 issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or Red Sonja issues. See also this blog's Redondo checklist or Top 10 Redondo comics.
