Spider-Man/Red Sonja

Spider-Man/Red Sonja

Genre: Super-Heroes

What the…? How can Spider-Man meet up with Red Sonja? Entirely different time periods, right? Well, yes, but for the powerful sorcerer Kulan Gath, very little is beyond his abilities. So it happens that a wall-crawler with one beautiful redhead in his life—Mary Jane Watson—suddenly finds his world turned upside down when she is magically transposed with another—Red Sonja. Will either the webslinger or the She-Devil with a sword get to the bottom of the madness that’s transformed the world around them and their very lives before killing each other?

This fun concept turns into a pretty fun comic, as written by Michael Avon Oeming (perhaps best known for his art on Powers) and drawn, with flair and textured beauty, by Mel Rubi. The Michael Turner covers are nice, too.
