“Red Mother creeped me the hell out, and I can’t wait for more!” —Gerry Duggan, Deadpool
“A creepy story, beautifully told, full of honest humanity and even more honest fear. BOOM! undoubtedly has another horror hit on its hands.”—Tim Seeley, Hack/Slash
BOOM! Studios announced today that the second printing of 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) has sold out at the distributor level before its on sale date of December 11, 2019.
In order to meet the overwhelming demand from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has fast-tracked THE RED MOTHER #1 THIRD PRINTING VARIANT to arrive in comic shops on January 8, 2020. This third printing will feature a new cover by Danny Luckert. 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 proven their ability to weave truly frightening horror stories with their previous work so it’s no surprise that fans can’t wait to get their hands on the first issue from this incredible team,” said Filip Sablik, President, Sales and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “Danny has truly outdone himself with the brand new cover for the third printing, so if you’re looking for a thrilling new horror series to jump into, bring THE RED MOTHER into your life.”
