Keith Lansdale Continues His Father’s Red Range

It’s Alive! has announced that Keith Lansdale, the writer who recently brought you X-Files and Creepy stories, will unleash his imagination on the historical and somewhat Steampunk world his father (Joe R. Lansdale) created in the original Red Rangegraphic novel! Launching in 2019, Red Range: Pirates of Fireworld will be the first new Red Range story in almost two decades!  And the first new comic book series from It’s Alive!

The original Red Range graphic novel was set sometime after the Civil War, when groups like the KKK were gaining popularity in the American South.  After having his family destroyed by the Klan, an African American man named Caleb Range donned a mask and sought his revenge, becoming The Red Mask!  Along the way, he met a young boy named Turon, who’s family suffered a similar fate to his own. Together, the two struggled to survive, while being pursued by the KKK. Then, while trying to escape, they fell through a hole to some deeper layer of the Earth, finding relics from different time periods in Earth’s history, and a sky of fire! A few dinosaurs showed up, and things were really staring to get weird, when the story abruptly ended, with a promise of “Pirates of Fireworld coming soon!”.

This new tale picks up right where the first one left off! Caleb Range (AKA The Red Mask), and his young companion Turon, find themselves under the surface of the Earth, in a world that seems to be lost in time. They are quickly confronted by a group of Steampunk-ish pirates in hot pursuit of a strange fellow who can only speak one name over and over again…Seetoc!  You’ll have to pick up the comic to find out what happens next!

These new Red Range comics will be launching with a beautiful standard cover by regular series artist Jok, along with a group of stunning variant covers by an international collection of artists including N. Steven Harris, Andrew Pepoy, Christopher Schenck, Russell Mark Olson, Ramón Pérez, and Aleksandar Bozic.  Please note: one variant will only be available via the Kickstarter campaign, and one variant will only be available via comic book shops.

Vampirella is still trapped inside the nightmarish netherworld of the Feary Tales book, tormented by the disembodied voice of the mysterious Storyteller, and her only hope of escaping is if she can survive the ghoulish mix-ups of familiar nursery tales until she reaches the last story. But first she must weather Stephen R. Bissette (Swamp Thing) and Denis St. John’s (Monster Pie) macabre re-imagining of the classic Betty Boop version of “Snow White”, then help track down a little missing mermaid in Gail Simone’s (Red Sonja) “Thirsty, Thirsty Town”.
