The Red Mother #1
Jeremy Haun returns to his The Beauty roots as he teams with Danny Luckert, hot off Regression, for a new psychological horror series. After losing her eye and the man she loves in a brutal mugging, Daisy McDonough is left trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Just when she begins to think she can heal— move on, she begins to see strange things through her new prosthetic eye. And The Red Mother sees her in return. Continuing BOOM! Studios’ string of successes, The Red Mother follows Faithless, Once & Future, and Something is Killing the Children for a new original series that examines the dangers that hide in plain sight – and the consequences of digging beneath the surface to find the truth underneath.

    This issue follows a girl called Daisy who eats too much pizza, and as a punishment the universe decides it will take her boyfriend, and her eye, and give her episodes where she sees a grey skull creature.All in all, it was actually pretty dull... Although in fairness I find first issues of comics generally are. From the off I am pretty glad that Luke disappears as I can't say I really liked him, Daisy's character is fairly flat, the weird grey skull creature seemed fairly uninspired, beyond the This issue follows a girl called Daisy who eats too much pizza, and as a punishment the universe decides it will take her boyfriend, and her eye, and give her episodes where she sees a grey skull creature.All in all, it was actually pretty dull...

I liked (who I assume is) the police officer.I will read a few issues in the series as usually these pick up, but so far not so good.

    Damn.I've never read anything by this team, but I saw the "#1" on the cover and thought I'd give it a go. This issue does a fantastic job of setting up the central mystery while not throwing a ton of story into the pages. We get enough to know we definitely want more. And, not only is the writing excellent, the art is gorgeous.Excellent start.

    A bit generic thriller, but interesting...

But that ended up being the last normal day of her life. That night, Luke walked somewhere she couldn’t follow. And trying to follow merely put Daisy at risk. Before I dive into this review, I would like to make one thing very clear. There are some really graphic images in Red Mother #1. For many people, these images would probably be fine. But if you’re particularly sensitive about eye injuries, this is a series you’re going to want to hard pass on. Also, don’t look at the alternate covers for this issue.Check out the full review over at Quirky Cat's Comics

    3.5 stars. A solid 1st issue. Our main character Daisy and her BF Luke are taking a walk after dinner and Luke gets snatched up by something. Daisy gives chase but gets her eye damaged or torn out. She wakes up in the hospital dealing with this tragedy that has happened. She get a prosthetic eye and shortly afterwards it’s starts doing some weird stuff. Definitely curious for the next issue.
