Boom! Studios announced their newest original horror series, THE RED MOTHER #1 has surpassed its demand and will be getting a second printing. See what all the fuss is about and check it out for yourself.

From The Press Release

“From the very first page, creepy and confident.” – Kieron Gillen, Once & Future

“Haun and Luckert’s haunting effort will enthrall anyone open to comics of a beautiful-yet-creepy nature.” – Phil Hester, Family Tree

“THE RED MOTHER is brutal, human-driven horror at its finest.”
– James Tynion IV, Batman

BOOM! Studios announced today that THE RED MOTHER #1, the premiere issue of the new original series from acclaimed writer Jeremy Haun (The Beauty, The Realm) and artist Danny Luckert (Regression) about a young woman who survives a tragedy, only to be afflicted with sudden, unexplained visions of horror and forced to deal with the terrible consequences, has sold out at the distributor level.

In order to meet the overwhelming demand from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has fast-tracked THE RED MOTHER #1 SECOND PRINTING VARIANT to arrive in comic shops on January 1, 2020. This second printing will feature a new cover by Reiko Murakami (Basketful of Heads). Quantities are limited and allocation may occur. 

There are dark things just beyond this reality. Horrors that we cannot quite see. Things wanting to get in. After losing her eye and the man she loves during a brutal attack in an alley, Daisy McDonough is left trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Just when she thinks she can start the process of healing and moving on, she begins to see strange things through her new prosthetic eye. 

She can see the Red Mother. And the Red Mother can see her right back!

“Jeremy and Danny have built an atmospheric, elevated horror yarn with THE RED MOTHER, and I’m very excited for it to finally be in readers’ hands,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Thanks to this second printing, with a brand new cover by the insanely talented Reiko Murakami, there’s no excuse not to experience Daisy’s harrowing journey for yourself.”

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
