Red Sonja v3 #1 - non-attributed Walt Simonson cover, mis-attributed Simonson art

Walt Simonson
Red Sonja v3 #1, 1983 - A close-in portrait of Red Sonja, this Walt Simonson cover is eye-catching but lacks adequate definition. The perpendicular placement of the swords offers a nice contrast to her flowing tresses. Her hands are clearly defined, but her face displays only the most basic details. While consistent with his style, Simonson delivers a lackluster effort. Other artists in this issue include Dave Simons and Vince Colletta. This is number 1 of 1 Red Sonja issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Red Sonja issues. See also this blog's Walt Simonson checklist.
