REVIEW: 'Redneck' #5 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' continues to be one of the best-written dramas in comics. For a vampire-inspired story. Don Cates is more interested in developing well-crafted characters and complicated family dynamics amid a century old feud than relying on tired tropes. This issue is an example of dialogue over violence, conscience over vengeance, and reconciliation over aggression.


REDNECK #5  Writer: Donny Cates Artist: Lisandro Estherren, Dee Cunniffe Letterer: Joe Sabino Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: August 23, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Bartlett's been the conscience of the series thus far. Even though he's not a blood relative of the Bowmans, being a vampire too makes him a part of the family. The death of Slap has turned the Bowman's lives upside down and rekindled the feud with the Landrys. It's reached a boiling point with J.V. about to kill Father Landry.

REVIEW: 'Shirtless Bear Fighter' #3 by Jody LeHeup, Sebastian Girner, and Nil Vendrell

If you're not reading 'Shirtless Bear Fighter' you're missing one of the most entertaining comics available. It's silly, over-the-top, and full of bare-knuckle bear punching. Shirtless is being held hostage by evil Fuzzy Wipes CEO Jaxson Logger and the only person that can save him is FBI agent Suzie Silva.



SHIRTLESS BEAR FIGHTER #3  Writer: Jody LeHeup, Sebastian Girner Artist: Nil Vendrell, Mike Spicer Letterer: Dave Lanphear Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: August 23, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
After a brief but cute opening flashback to Agent Silva's childhood, we see the adult Silva scoping out the Fuzzy Wipes factory where Shirtless is being held. Wearing a t-shirt, his one weakness, Shirtless is bound and gagged with Logger in full menacing super-villain mode about to monologue his evil plan for deforestation to fuel his world domination of wet wipes. Yes, you've read that right.
It's this kind of reverence for action movie tr…

PRE-ORDER: All-New Crime/Horror GASOLINA Series Coming from Image/Skybound

Creators Sean Mackiewicz and Niko Walter team up with colorist Mat Lopes and letterer Rus Wooton for an all-new crime/horror adventure, GASOLINA, from Image/Skybound Entertainment and reveal interior pages for a sneak peek into the new story.


Fugitives. Rebels. Newlyweds. GASOLINA follows Amalia and Randy on their journey south from El Norte. They have played many roles in order to survive, but now, they must become unlikely leaders in the fight against a new cartel who uses inhuman tactics to ignite the most monstrous war Mexico—and the world—has ever seen.
“Skybound is the most creatively stimulating environment I’ve ever experienced, so in creating this comic with Niko Walter, I’m putting to use everything I’ve learned from all the talented creators I’ve worked with… and also Robert Kirkman,” said Mackiewicz. “I can’t imagine publishing my first comic anywhere but at Image/Skybound.”
Everything burns in this new series where love and devotion can only be measured in fire and blood.
