A Review: RED AGENT #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of RED AGENT #1 from Zenescope Entertainment. Lou Iovino writes, Diego Galindo draws, Grostieta colors, and Fabio Amelia letters.

Britney, better known as Red Riding Hood, is used to working alone. So she’s pretty surprised when the Highborn Initiative comes looking for her. Their proposal is persuasive, and they seem to be genuinely concerned for the lives of humans and highborns alike. Their biggest problem at the moment is a fellow named Alpha, who’s taking out highborns at an impressive rate. They have a lead on his next target, but can Britney get there in time?

Zenescope has invested a lot of time and story in their supernatural/super-powered universe, and lately they’ve really been doing some cool things with it. Red is essentially a bad-ass werewolf, and she’s well suited for high-powered secret agent work. Alpha’s got some kind of network behind him, and taking him down will be a really fun ride. And the art plays up the action quite well, with the promise of much more to come (and Alpha looks really cool, too).

Supernatural superspies in a modern world coming to grips with its magical roots. If that doesn’t sound like fun, I don’t know what to tell you J. This book is a great way into an interesting universe.

RED AGENT #1 is available now at your FLCS or at zenescope.com.
