    Red Winter #1 is a comic I didn't have my eye on necessarily though the subject and genre is one I enjoy. After reading this first issue, it's a series I'm diving in to with each subsequent release. This is also a creative team to keep your eye on. Red Winter #1 feels like a stealth release far too many will miss out on and if you're a fan of crime/noir stories or 80s films like Red Heat, it's a comic you need to grab. Read Full Review
