What is up with the arts on thoose books, Shadow looks good, but Queen Sonja and Masks are terrible, Masks has no background only pasted photos.

Yeah, really not feeling that Sonja art. I think I'm going to stick to her other title.

That Red Sonja cover in my opinion is absolutely stunning. And personally I like the interior art as well.

Sonja has awesome covers.

But the interior art is f---ing atrocious.

Really digging the Ross covers myself with these. Dynamite pretty much is flawless and its awesome they help provide extended previews like this ^_^

Red Sonja's cover is fantastic but the interior is web-comic level.

@rafa_lee: Hate to say it but I agree. I don't get it, Dynamite puts out some great stories and cover art, but the interior art has been seriously lacking.

Yeah right, it is curious cause Red Sonja have a great artist Walter Geovani

There is sooo many good artists out there it does not make any sense to have some artist like thoose.
