Chip is faced with two options...run like hell from a town he's lost to Nazi vam-pires, or team up with a pair of barely sober hicks who hate him to rescue the woman he loves. Tough choice.
Tim Seeley (BRLLIANT TRASH, Hack/Slash, Grayson) and Corin Howell (Ghostbusters, Bat-Mite) bring you a contemporary and horrifying tale of vampirism in the heart of America-one that'll make you jump right out of your boots.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 13, 2019

    Chip is the most human character in Dark Red and he's a vampire. He got mixed up in the wrong ideas for a moment, but now clearly sees what must be done. When Nazis are involved, there are no doubts about who's right and who's wrong. They are most definitely on the wrong side. These bigoted jerks are about to get what's coming to them and I can't wait. I thought I hated Nazis before this comic, but Dark Red has renewed my hatred for these assholes. Read Full Review

    Dark Red is pure gold. The story is exciting and frightening. The visuals are realistic and horrible in its creation of the undead. The colors intensify the text and the art on the page. The letters bring a level of reality to the proceedings and amplify every sound and whisper to monstrous levels. This is a perfect horror comic. I can't get enough of this series. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Adrian Care Jun 25, 2019

    Dark Red's character work and story beats will take you on a journey from laughs to some truly tragic and provocative themes. Is this a book with something for everyone? Maybe not. It really straddles the line between an entertaining read and something more grim. But if you're game for all this, Dark Red #4 definitely has a lot for most readers to relish sinking their teeth into. Read Full Review

    Only this creative team could combine redneck humor with racist vampires to create a story this good. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 27, 2019

    Dark Red takes things larger as we get a look at the City Order here that Ashen Black runs and it's something that definitely has a lot of power, money, and history behind it that'll make it interesting. We get glimpses of that but I like that it spends most of its time with Ashen getting to know Evie in her own twisted way while we get a different view of her through Chip. Chip, for his part, is just trying to get back on his feet after things went so far south in the town he had staked out and that means working to settle down both Stu and Cam with all that they've learned now. It plays well and while it doesn't get me to like Cam in the slightest he at least proves himself to be a bit useful here for a few minutes before just taking one for the team. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Jun 26, 2019

    The art by Corin Howell continues to be incredibly detailed in some panels and delivers the gore and nastiness I'm looking for. Why so low, to be honest the series has been great so far but pacing wise this was the slowest, and feels cut-off abruptly. As part of the bigger TPB these panels will be good but not by themselves. Otherwise Dark Red continues to be a good read and something I will look forward to seeing adapted to the screen in the future. Read Full Review
