The Unnamed's Redcoat is just getting started! It is 1892! The year of Coca-Cola, the first public basketball game, and Lizzie Borden picking up an axe! It's also the year that immortal mercenary and former British Revolutionary War soldier Simon Pure finds himself the target of a mysterious cult. One that seems to know everything about him. And now Simon must do something he's never done before-accept help. Help in the form of the most unlikely of allies: a 12-year-old Albert Einstein obsessed with unlocking the secret to Simon's magic!

    The icing on the cake is the absolutely gorgeously detailed art. Every single page moves the story along while sucking you into this world of the past. This issue saw Simon at a ball in the 1800s, and no details were missed. From the clothes, to the ballroom, lighting, and more. Emotions are also perfectly portrayed as you get completely lost in the story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 14, 2024

    Red Coat #2 is another rollicking good time with plenty of action and many answers. Those answers tend to come by way of heavy doses of captioning, but this is a historically-minded period piece adventure not to be missed. Read Full Review

    Plot
    Simón Pure is unearthed by a young teenager named...ALBERT EINSTEIN, who comes to warn him that his existence is key to stopping something that will happen in the future that his sister Maja saw, related to characters already known in the Ghost Machine universe. , a robot and a brilliant man.

    Albert helps Simon escape from a group of attackers dressed in the same cult robes whose ritual gave Red Coat immortality.

    Albert's German-accented dialogues are hilarious, he is an interesting character as it shows him interested in magic even though his future will focus on advanced physics, his interactions with Simon are great, as are the sequences of fight.

    Simon is injured by a mysterious axe, which beg more

    Nothing amazing here but we get a curse via magical item, a sidekick with dire warnings of future calamity and fun historical figures as characters in the mix instead of what I thought this would turn out to be which was just an Armstrong like character getting into trouble through the years and being a miscreant just to get his comeuppance and see how horrible a death he could suffer each issue. There is intrigue and suspense along with some damn fine art in this book. I suggest you give it a try.

    I don't think it's anywhere near issue one. It did however entertain me, it just didn't do much to take it to the next level.
