My review boycott of Dynamite’s Red Sonja books continue.  While Robert E. Howard gets the “credit” for Red Sonja’s creation (he once wrote a story about Red Sonya that has nothing to do with the character we all know and love), it was Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor Smith who created Red Sonja as we have known her for the past 40+ years.

Barry and Roy never get credit.  They never get a thank you . That probably lies right on the shoulders of Red Sonja LLC, but it also lies on the shoulders of every comic book writer, artist, inker, colorist, and Red Sonja fan who doesn’t take an interest.  I don’t want much – I just want a “Special thanks to Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor Smith” in the inside cover.  Is that too much to ask?  Because these two men should at least be thanked for creating one of the most famous heroines of all time.

Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Watch the video below and learn a few things about Red Sonja, Roy Thomas, Barry Windsor Smith, and their lack of credit.  It’s time.  Let’s do the right thing Dynamite Comics and Red Sonja Corp LLC. #thankstoroyandbarry
