Can we take a moment to talk about Campbell’s work on the covers? Each of the past three issues has been an iconic horror masterpiece that will keep me up at night. They are all different, yet bold and in your face. Campbell is the vampire Santa Claus delivering a new treat each month.

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
