Red Sonja: WTF??????????????

Holy Crap, I just read these two preview pages on Scans Daily of Dynamite Entertainment's "Red Sonja"...

The text starts,

"It was said that the She-Devil had a burning, bloody hatred for all men..."

(click images for larger)

Of course, all this really does is, in a roundabout way, promote the "Red Sonja" book.

But still: dood. WTF? She's a man-hating castrating bitch but she also makes your pee-pee get hard. We get it.

UPDATED: the Scans Daily crowd, for the most part, unmoved by said images. Except for a few posters:

"I don't know, I think it's kind of hot."


  1. "If we make Sonia objectify men, then she'll be a REAL feminist!"

  2. She killed Conan because he tried to tell her what to do?

  3. Sonja's work on that guy wasn't the only hack job here.

    Thanks, I'll be here all week.

  4. The horribly funny part is that I think the writer might have actually intended this to be a positive portrayal. While I'm all for comic writers putting strong women in their books, the results might be somewhat less dreadful if they actually met some strong women first.

  5. So in antediluvian times, they made self-referentially ironic comments? What progressive humor they had back then!

  6. Uhhggg, why do so many writers think that a female character has to hate men in order to think freely?!
