Your First Look at Jeremy Haun and Danny Luckert’s The Red Mother #1

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at The Red Mother #1, the premiere issue of an all-new original comic book series from acclaimed writer Jeremy Haun and artist Danny Luckert about a young woman who survives a tragedy, only to be afflicted with sudden, unexplained visions of horror and forced to deal with the terrible consequences.

There are dark things just beyond this reality. Horrors that we cannot quite see. Things wanting to get in. After losing her eye and the man she loves during a brutal attack in an alley, Daisy McDonough is left trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Just when she thinks she can start the process of healing and moving on, she begins to see strange things through her new prosthetic eye. 

She can see the Red Mother. And the Red Mother can see her right back!

The Red Mother #1 features a main cover illustrated by series writer Jeremy Haun and variant cover art by series artist Danny Luckert. It goes on sale December 11, 2019.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

For Real #1

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Black Stars Above #1 (Vault Comics) – Set in 1887, the series follows a gil who flees her trapper family that’s overbearing to get lost in a dreamlike winter wilderness that harbors a cosmic threat.

Dollhouse Family #1 (DC Comics/Hill House Comics) – We’re intrigued where more of Joe Hill’s currated line of comics is going.

Fallen Angels #1 (Marvel) – The initial line-up of Dawn of X debuts and it’s an intriguing one.

Family Tree #1 (Image Comics) – The fact Jeff Lemire, Phil Hester, and Eric Gapstur is behind this should be enough. The story focused on a family’s journey to find a cure for their daughter who’s turning into a tree.

Far Sector #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – A new Green Lantern tale from Gerard Way’s imprint? We’re very intrigued.

Folklords #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Matt Kindt and Matt Smith team up for a new series which flips the fantasy/real world dynamic.

For Real #1 (Uncivilized Books) – Jack Kirby fights two battles in two ears. The first is cancer and the other is World War II.

Ginseng Roots #2 (Uncivilized Books) – Craig Thompson’s series of comics about his life picking ginseng is unique with some amazing art.

La Voz De Mayo Rambo (Image Comics) – The history of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the Pascua Yaqui tribe.

Science Comics: Skyscrapers (First Second) – This series of graphic novels is fantastic. It both entertains and educates.
