REDNECK SERVES UP VAMPIRES WITH BBQ SAUCE
Writer Donny Cates has sent vampires to space in Interceptor and now he's bringing them back down to earth to Texas for Redneck, a new series coming in April from Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment. Lisandro Estherren is handling interior artwork and Dee Cunniffe is on colors. The premise for Redneck sounds awesome.
The Bowmans are vampires who have quietly run the local barbecue joint in their small town for years, living off cow's blood. Their peaceful coexistence ends as generations of hate, fear, and bad blood bubble to the surface—making it impossible to separate man from monster!
"Redneck is truly a dream come true for me as a storyteller, and to be able to tell this story on a stage as nice as Skybound and Image have given us? I don't think it gets better than that,” said Cates. “Redneck is deeply personal for me, and I think will be for a lot of people out there as well. It's a story about a family's quest to turn themselves into more than the monsters they've always been. To find a little peace in a world that hates them. It ain't gonna be easy, and it's sure as hell gonna be bloody. But it might just be the best time you've ever had reading a book about vampires!"
That is a great hook and I can't wait to check it out. Cates has been on fire lately, especially with the recent release of God Country. I can pull the hipster card here and say that I liked his earlier work too, like The Ghost Fleet, but whatever. Redneck #1 is set for release on April 19th.
