Red Winter Fallout #2

(W) Michael Gordon (A/CA) Alberto Massaggia

Joseph Winter has been saved from the jaws of death by a mysterious Russian woman named Darya Petukhof. Here’s the thing, though – he has no idea who she is, nor why she cares if his head is still attached to his shoulders. Either way, he’s now on the run with her, trying to stay one step ahead of Vasily Andropov’s Chistyye Krovi gang, who are out for blood. Meanwhile, Detective Max Voronin continues to investigate the Oil Refinery massacre, and finds himself in contact with another mysterious woman-this one claiming to be an American podcaster researching Kapotnya’s gangs for her show.

Peter Landesman will write and direct The Recount

The Recount

Peter Landesman has come on board to adapt and direct Scout Comics‘ best-selling comic series The Recount into a feature film for Don Handfield’s Motor Content and Jonathan Kadin’s KadinCreative. Nick Jones Jr. will co-write with Landesman.

The fictional political thriller penned by Jonathan Hedrick was published by Scout Comics in November of 2020 on the eve of the most contested election in modern history. Blending the political intrigue of House of Cards and the horror of The Purge, The Recount is a realistic action-thriller set in an unsettlingly recognizable American political climate. The Recount features art by Gabriel Elias Ibarra Nunez, colors by Sunil Ghagre, and letters by Cristian Docolomansky

When the US President is assassinated by one of his own security detail, a female Secret Service agent must protect the Vice President at all costs from a conspiracy group calling themselves ‘The Masses’. With nowhere to turn and no one to trust, these two women with completely opposing political views and beliefs must work together to preserve what’s left of American democracy.

One of Scout Comics best-selling titles, The Recount was written by army veteran Jonathan Hedrick and received critical acclaim for both the jaw-dropping action and how it explored timely political themes in the vein of V for Vendetta or The Purge. The book was released in November of 2020, on the eve of the most contested election in modern history – and despite its fictional and apolitical stance — seemed oddly clairvoyant in its dark portrayal of a nation on the brink. 

Handfield, Kadin, Landesman and Scout Comics will produce through their respective banners, with Motor Content’s Jordan Moore serving as an Executive Producer.  

Handfield is also a partner and board member of Scout Comics, and was instrumental in bringing the series to Scout for publication and got involved early in its development.

Review: The Recount #3

The Recount #3

The Recount has been an amazing series so far. The first and second issues were punches to the gut. The series delivers a story that feels so fantastical but at the same time so possible. The Recount focuses on “The Masses”, a group of individuals enacting revenge against the supporters of the former President. That includes individuals like the Vice President (now President) down to voters. It’s a purge of those considered traitors and those who enabled them. The Recount #3 packs a lot in bouncing around various plotlines with each delivering a punch and one defying expectations.

Writer Jonathan Hedrick has delivered a world and a premise that feels far too real after the events of January 6. He deftly juggles a lot of threads and directions delivering both a broad look as to what’s going on and keeping the story focused on the new President who must deal with a national uprising and a threat that can be anyone.

Hedrick could easily focus the entire comic on President McDearmon and Special Agent Barto and the threat to the nation and themselves. But Hedrick pulls things back also giving us glimpses of the betrayals/uprisings in various segments, the actions of individuals, and also those behind the attacks. And Hedrick keeps readers on their toes.

The attack on a couple by a man who lost his son in a war is revisited in this issue and its direction is one that’s truly unexpected. Hedrick has more going on than the stories of revenge and cathartic murderous glee. There’s some depth that’s a bit welcome making the series not quite as grim. Through the death and destruction there’s also a glimmer of hope as well.

The art by Gabriel Ibarra-Nuñez continues to impress. There’s a grit to it that matches the chaos and nature of the story. Sunil Ghagre‘s colors and Christian Docolomansky‘s lettering help bring it all together for a story that’s full of action but feel grounded in some ways too. There’s one particular scene and its depiction that’ll leave readers speechless in the delivery. It’s a spread that had me stop reading and reflect on what was happening. The team is able to deliver the shocking moments. They also are able to deliver real emotion as well as we witness towards the end of the issue.

The Recount #3 continues a series that deserves far more buzz than it has. This is a series that feels like it could be ripped from the headlines and perfect for television. It has such an amazing quality about it that I immediately want to know what happens next as a good action-thriller should. It’s a hell of a next issue that pulls off covering a lot and packing it into a single issue.
