Redneck 1 (April 2017)

Redneck #1

Texican Gothic with vampires. Donny Cates does this drawling narration for the book, which has a family of rural Texas vampires trying to get by. Some have Jesus, some don’t. One of them might have turned into Nosferatu but with wings. Vampires can get drunk on paint thinner, which is a neat detail. It’s a lot of action, a lot of immediate character introduction. Cates does well with the exposition–the drawl means he can hide a fair amount just in there–and Lisandro Estherren’s art is solid. Redneck starts strong.
