Image Comics recently announced ts new ongoing horror comic series Redlands, by Eisner-winning artist Jordie Bellaire (Pretty Deadly, Vision, Batman) and critically acclaimed artist Vanesa R. Del Rey (Zero, Scarlet Witch, Constantine), to begin this August.
Redlands introduces readers to the sleepy, sunny town of Redlands, Florida where the police are failing to maintain control of their old-fashioned community and a coven of killer witches plan to take everything from them.
“Redlands is my sick, weird love letter to Stephen King, Florida and Riot Grrrls everywhere but ultimately, hate mail for everything else,” said Bellaire. “Inspired by the strange complexities of real world politics and crime, the characters of Redlands play victim and villain, attempting to understand themselves and others, through murder, magic, and mayhem.”
Del Rey added: “The world of Redlands was brewed in darkness, it is murky waters, it is a gloomy day in the humidity of the mangroves. There is ferocity in this land, it is savagery that goes deep noir. The stories that develop in this world are as intricate as the etched lines that depict them.”
Redlands #1 hits up the comic stores on Wednesday, August 9th.
