Lucy Claire was once a celebrated hero. But through a series of sinister events, she was slandered and defamed, and her children were taken from her. But when an old danger re-emerges, Lucy will have to take on the mantle of hero once again in order to right the wrongs of her past and-above all else-find a way back to her children.

    This book is a fun read that is both poignant in retrospect, with writing that possibly hides Upchurch's feelings and thoughts in plain sight and covers the beats of familiar tropes. It will be interesting to see how this series develops. Read Full Review

    All in all, Lucy Claire: Redemption #1 is a good start to a new series. I am not 100% sold on it just yet. There is a lot to like in this issue and it has me wanting to read the second issue. I Just have a few hang-ups on art and the tone of the story that keeps me from being all in on this series just yet. But it definitely was not a disappointing read, either. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 11, 2019

    With decent art and solid delivery of a standard action plot, Redemption has a chance to do something fun. Lucy seems like she has the potential to be an interesting character. Future issues will give her and the world in which she lives the opportunity to start to distinguish themselves as something truly original. This first issue isnt delivering anything terribly impressive, though. Read Full Review

    Not exactly original, is it? We have the obligatory female led storyline and a group of freaky multi-racial kids seeking a monster hunter. It's all be done before. I'll give it one more issue in case it surprises me.

    How many stories can people write where the protagonist is some alcoholic/drug using tormented soul that has some dark past they want to forget? Jeesh, enough already.

    Writing was good and the art was pretty cool too, but damn, the same story you've read countless times.
