Red City is a science fiction, noir comic from Image comics, and it’s great! Issue #2 really ups the ante, overflowing with car chases, high altitude shootouts and political intrigue. Thinking about it since , it’s actually more noir-light. The colorist uses a brighter palette than you might expect, and while there are classic, typical noir scenes, drenched with shadows, cigarette smoke, and anxiety, it’s not so pervasive throughout the story. Corey and his team are pulling noir out of the shadows and into the more accessible and humor-filled light.
Issue #2 drops this Wednesday, July 9th, so check it out at your local comic store!
