Rusty Shackles covers Red Sonja 1

Original cover by Frank Thorne; Marvel 1977. Rusty Shackles website is here.


  1. Hmmm, yeah, this is one of those that makes me look at the original and appreciate IT waaaay better.

  2. I'll go ahead and disagree. The original looks almost garish next to Rusty's version. Plus, Sonja looks way more appealing in the newer version.

    She looks like the main character from Rocky Horror in the original.

    The colors are so mush more subtle and thoughtful in the new one as well. Of course they didn't have the best printing abilities and computer coloring wasn't available.
