    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Dec 21, 2017

    'Redlands' is the type of terrifying comic that operates on its own terms, immersing the reader in fiendish situations as it sees fit. Bellaire and Del Rey have conjured up a cauldron of black magic, sex, and violence. However, it's the description of a child's sexual exploitation that will make your skin crawl as the all-too-real narrative invades the story. 'Redlands' is unflinching, unnerving, and completely unpredictable. It shakes one's previously held beliefs or assumptions about witches, horror, and comics.  Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Pierre Brown Dec 20, 2017

    Depressing, sexy, and combating racism, sexism, and the blurred lines between good and evil, Redlands has had a great year and I look forward to their return in 2018. Read Full Review

    Whatever that "something" is, I'm locked in. Overall, Redlands #5 lives in the tradition of this young series' greatness. The epilogues at the end of each issue are an awesome feature as well, this one containing some of the saddest, darkest insights we've seen thus far. The way those endings inform the series as mini-tales of their own? The way they add depth and richness to their world? Brilliant. All of it, brilliant. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue continues to show that Redlands is one of Image Comics best new series. It's no surprise that several people have included this series, as well as its creators in many top 10 lists of the years.

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Dec 28, 2017

    Ever dark and sexy, Redlands is intriguing in its captivating storyline. Revealing our witchy heroes may not be on the right side of the law is starting to bring into question their true intentions for their little town. As the story arc ends, hopefully, we get a bombshell answer that brings us a little closer to understanding how all these pieces fit together. Read Full Review
