A Review: RED RIDING HOOD One-Shot

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of RED RIDING HOOD from Zenescope Entertainment. The story is by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco, written by Jeff Massey, with art by Chris Johnson, colors by Leonardo Paciarotti, and lettering by Saida Temofonte.

Britney Waters continues her career as a bounty hunter in Los Angles, but feels its big step down from her days of battling Highborns to save the universe. While out chasing her latest “prey,” Britney encounters a big Russian muscleman named Rick – the self-proclaimed “Master of the Hunt.” His proposition is to join forces to hunt down an ancient werewolf. Brittney joins him, if only to find out what Rick’s true mission is…

Zenescope has the reputation of the eye-candy covers, but they also deserve the reputation of well-done, strong female characters that fans (particularly female) have been demanding for some time. Britney is a quick-witted, resourceful and likeable character that Jeff Massey handles rather well. I like Chris Johnson’s look of Britney when she’s in werewolf form; she’s not totally wolf, but more than human. I would like to see Red Riding Hood in her own ongoing. Hopefully that may become a reality soon.

RED RIDING HOOD is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.Zenescope.com.
