The Red Ten #3 Trailer

And then there were eight… The Alliance came to the island to hunt the Oxymoron. But with two members now dead, is someone hunting them? What dark secrets are buried in the depths of Mazu’s soul? And which hero will be the next to fall? The Red Ten is a 10 issue superhero retelling of Agatha Christie’s classic novel “And Then There Were None.”

The Red Ten #3 (FEB130894) will be available in Comic Shops world-wide in April.

Review – The Red Ten #1

I’m not much of a fan of books. I really didn’t like reading them growing up, so the ones I really enjoyed I could count on my hand. Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians or And Then There Were None is one of those books I loved. The Red Ten is the super hero version of that story, which makes me wonder why the hell that hasn’t been done before?!

When the world’s greatest detective is violently murdered by her nemesis, the world’s foremost super team and her former sidekick band together to bring the villain to justice. However, the mission goes terribly wrong, and before the night is out each of the ten “heroes” will pay dearly for past transgressions.

It’s a super hero murder mystery except anyone can be the murderer or victim and I’m expecting twists and turns like the book it’s based off of. The art is solid, pacing great, everything is top notch. This is the type of comic you wouldn’t see from major publishers and the type of excellence and creativity you’ll only find in indie comics.

With ComixTribe now having distribution threw Diamond, here’s hoping we get to move forward with not just this, but it’s other series’ as well so we can see the growth I’m expecting and excellent story that’s already begun continue.
