RED ONE #1 Shipping in March 2015 from IMAGE COMICS

My creator owned book, RED ONE, is shipping in March from IMAGE COMICS-


What if happens when America's Greatest Hero ... is actually a Russian Spy?

It's 1977, the height of the Cold War between USSR and US, and the Kremlin has a plan to win the war against Uncle Sam, propaganda!

Vera Yelnikov is an elite agent in the Soviet Army during the Cold War - she IS the atomic bomb! Vera is sent to Los Angeles by her bosses at the Kremlin. Her mission? Become a true "American superhero", to be the spearhead of a propaganda operation of communist values in the land of Uncle Sam and fight against the "Carpenter", a fascist serial killer who blames America's ills on liberals. Vera is clumsy and ignorant of the customs of "the American way of life". Her secret identity in the US is Alabama Jones,  and she must find a day job to cover her secret identity ... a job that allows her to blend in and meet the aspirations of the Kremlin when the need arises as - RED ONE! 

Xavier Dorison (Long John Silver, The Third Testament) and Terry and Rachel Dodson(Star Wars: Princess Leia, Uncanny X-Men, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and Harley Quinn) launch a sexy and funky new superhero story, straight out of a Tarantino film.
