Dark Red #2 hits your local comic shop on April 24th, but thanks to AfterShock Comics, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive seven-page preview for you.
The 32-page book is written by Tim Seeley, with art by Corin Powell, colors by Mark Englert, and letters by Marshall Dillon. Aaron Campbell worked on the cover.
Seeley does a great job at setting the tone of Dark Red right from the get-go. He takes us down the dark highway and into Nowhere, USA, with stereotypical characters that normally wouldn’t make it past the first few pages of a story. In the middle of it all is vampire protagonist Chip Ipswich, who doesn’t rip open the throat of a local drunk when confronted. Rather, he uses his power of persuasion to remain unassuming, to continue his humdrum existence in rural America. – via Michael Fromm’s review of Dark Red #1
About the issue:
Rural vampire Chip is dragged from his boring life as a late night convenience store clerk and into a monstrous conspiracy, as he protects the ravishing vampiress Kamille from the Order of Eventide. Can Chip be the hero he always saw himself as?
