Writer: Donny Cates
Artist: Lisandro Estherren
Colorist: Dee Cunniffe
I’m excited that Rednecks is back on the stands, but I wasn’t expecting this issue to start with such a cliffhanger. This series is a perfect example of why Donny Cates is now writing for Marvel. He has the reader invested in these characters, this story, and the art by Lisandro Estherren fits the tone of this gritty southern tale.
This issue starts of as a slow burn and that’s a good thing. The family has been in hiding since the incident that took place in the last arc, and let’s just say that everyone isn’t happy about it. They’re a family full of vampires and should be able to do what they want, but JV just won’t allow it. This leads to Landry and Bartlett having a little heart to heart and it was very productive talk for Landry.
Bartlett is trying his best to let Landry know everything there is to be a vampire. This is something very new to him and he wants to soak up as much information as possible. The one piece of information that Bartlett tells Landry, and probably regrets, is telling him to try human blood. After Bartlett tells Landry about human blood, nothing good comes from this and that piece of information costs someone their life.
Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe sure know how to start an arc off strong. The death at the end was not expected and can’t wait to see where Redneck goes from here. Lisandro Estherren and Dee Cunniffe are on their “A” game as usual and I continue to love the gritty tone they continue to convey in this series. Pick this issue up and all the back issues immediately because it has everything you could want in great comic series.
