First Looks: Redneck

RedneckImage Comics/Skybound Entertainment, with writer Donny Cates (God Country) artist Lisandro Estherren, and colourist Dee Cunniffe, have created a Southern vampire comic that will put True Blood to shame!

Redneck will follow the Bowmans, vampires who have quietly run the local barbecue joint in their small town for years, living off cow’s blood. Their peaceful coexistence ends as generations of hate, fear, and bad blood bubble to the surface, making it impossible to separate man from monster!

Redneck is truly a dream come true for me as a storyteller, and to be able to tell this story on a stage as nice as Skybound and Image have given us? I don’t think it gets better than that. Redneck is deeply personal for me, and I think will be for a lot of people out there as well. It’s a story about a family’s quest to turn themselves into more than the monsters they’ve always been. To find a little peace in a world that hates them. It ain’t gonna be easy, and it’s sure as hell gonna be bloody. But it might just be the best time you’ve ever had reading a book about vampires!” – Donny Cates

Redneck serves up the tale, of a different kind, of family just trying to get by, deep in the heart of Texas.

Redneck #1 hits stores on Wednesday, April 19th, 2017!

I read, I write, I play videogames, Ghostbusters is my favourite thing in the known universe, but quasars come in at a close second. I've been known to cry at the drop of a hat over happy and sad things alike. I've also been known to fly into a rage if things don't go my way, leading to many a fight in high school and breaking someone's nose on the TTC one time. I'm an anxious introvert but also a loud-mouthed bad influence. Especially on my cat. He learned it from watching me, okay!
