Red Sonja v3 #2 - Nestor Redondo art


Red Sonja v3 #2, 1983 - Delirium overcomes Red Sonja, a result of inadvertently drinking from a tainted spring. Glimpses from her childhood are revealed, providing clues to her origins. Although already laid out and sequenced, Nestor Redondo does a superb job on inking Mary Wilshire's pencils. Some pages are better than others, but the majority of panels contain a phenomenal level of detail. From the carefully drawn outdoor foliage (see interior page below) to the stone-walled castle interiors (pages 13,18,26,38), Redondo raises the bar to new artistic heights. This is number 1 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.

  1. Wilshire seems to be paying homage to Barry Windsor Smith on the cover. The characters depicted show no knowledge of swordsmanship.
