MARS. The near future-ish. A bomb takes out a city block on Harrison Station. The media rush to blame the local terrestrials (re:aliens,) however Superintendent Denton Coyle has a feeling that it may not be so simple... or maybe that feeling is Coyle's hangover gut bomb. It's unclear... like a 50/50 shot, it's a mistake or explosive diarrhea. Maybe it's both? In other words, it's yet another Tuesday on Mars.

    Geekery Magazine - Kevin Hamilton Mar 8, 2017

    At the end of the day, I could not recommend this title enough. An amazing first issue to what has so much promise to be a Oni Press best seller. If you're looking for a Sci-Fi story that will keep you hooked. This is probably for you. Redline is Scary, Inspiring, and gives an interesting look on a planet we know little about.

    Outright Geekery - A. J. Jones Mar 16, 2017

    All in all, then, I recommend Redline #1 for its story so far. It's a promising start to a series full of possibilities. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Mar 8, 2017

    Redline #1 is an excellent first issue that captures the characters so realistically you're basically reading a good TV show. Fans of well-written dialogue must read this. Refreshing and interesting, Redline is a series those who love character dramas must read. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kent Falkenberg Mar 10, 2017

    Crass and unapologetic, but undeniably funny. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brandy Dykhuizen Mar 13, 2017

    Redline is whip-smart and heinously immature in a way that ensures it will net the same fan base as Archer. It's the kind of book that exists to provoke: create a character so reprehensible that all the anti-PC jokes you can possibly come up with will get a pass, and put a woman in charge so you can repeat quips about who's banging the boss lady. There are blurred lines there for sure, but as long as it's packed with action and the jokes never rest, this near-future Martian comedy is sure to provide a chuckle or two. Read Full Review

    That's Not Current - Glenn Miller Mar 9, 2017

    Redline is off to a promising start, tip-toeing a fine line between satire and parody. However, only time will tell if it has the bite to really make a statement. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Mar 9, 2017

    Ultimately, it is a first issue with promise. The dialogue flows well, if coarse, and the art is appropriately coarse in return. The feel is significantly less Sci-Fi than readers may be expecting but a second issue may lead the series in a much more solid, interesting direction. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Mar 8, 2017

    I get what this book is trying to be. I do. But it just fell short a little short of that for me. There's some potential here and I think it's possible to turn the story around. I just think this was a weak first issue. I needed something to keep my mind from wandering while reading. I needed something to latch onto. I needed a character to relate to and root for. But I didn't find any of that here. Read Full Review
