Redlands #2

redlands #2Last we saw the witches of Redlands, Bridget was possessed. Issue #5 digs deep into the tragic life of the spirit possessing Bridget as well as sets thestage for the arrival of another character whose intentions may not be the best for the coven.

Redlands is my favorite Image release of 2017. Never have I been disappointed with an issue and I always end up anticipating the next issue. This issue brought a lot more sexism/rape culture blatantly with men either confessing their sexual desire to have sex with their stepdaughter or grabbing the hand of an unwilling woman to feel his erection. Even the story, (told through journal entries), of the vengeful spirit within Bridget had strong elements of sexual assault after her own father drops her off at a brothel and never returns.

Depressing, sexy, and combating racism, sexism, and the blurred lines between good and evil, Redlands has had a great year and I look forward to their return in 2018. — Pierre Brown
