Red Sonja: Doom of the Gods By Eric S Brown

     The title of Red Sonja: Doom of the Gods is very misleading in a sense and is often confused with Red Sonja: Wrath of the Gods. Doom of the Gods is actually a sequel collection to Red Sonja Vs. Thulsa Doom, picking up where that series left off. Sonja has been desperately attempting to track down Thulsa Doom to make him pay for not only for the evil he has spread across the land but also the personal evils he inflicted upon her. Meanwhile, Thulsa has found a means of killing the gods themselves so that he can ascend to an even higher degree of power, truly becoming an immortal.

     This trade paperback collects all four issues of Doom of the Gods and features a back up gallery of all the series’ variant covers. The art is high in quality, truly depicting the gore of the battles fought within its pages as well as breathing life into Sonja’s world, bringing it to life on the page. The story is intense and sure to please any fan of either Red Sonja or Thulsa Doom. It’s nearly impossible not to hear James Earl Jones’ voice narrating Thulsa Doom as one reads.

     The epic battle between the two violent forces of nature represented in Red Sonja and Thulsa Doom ends here in a conclusion that the reader is unlikely to see coming, making this book a must read for a fan of the world of Conan the Barbarian.
