Review of "Red One Issue 1," by Xavier Dorison et. al.

 Review of

Red One Issue 1, by Xavier Dorison et. al.

Five out of five stars

A hot and deadly superspy is introduced

 The first issue of a comic introducing a new character is always a challenge. It is necessary to give a reasonably complete background as well as show the character in action that will hold your attention and drive you to want more. The authors are successful in both areas.

 There is a strong puritan movement in the United States and the group is protesting what they believe to be morally destructive popular media such as movies. The group is backed by a hooded ninja-type vigilante called “The Carpenter” that will not hesitate to kill the players in the movies deemed inappropriate.

In response to the changes in America, the Kremlin decides to send their best soldier to the United States and remain undercover. That soldier is a very sexy female with an attitude. The timeframe is during the reign of Leonid Brezhnev, so there is the undercurrent of détente within the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.

 The agent ends up in Hollywood as a driver for a very controversial and obnoxious film producer, setting the stage for a great deal of potential action. On the last page she meets her contact and is outfitted with a very tight and hot uniform made of strong, resistant material with pockets for the cool spy-like devices.

 This is a great comic and after reading it you will pine for subsequent issues.
