CBR Review: Red: Eyes Only #1

I recently reviewed Red: Eyes Only #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "It’s hard to know what to expect when an artist writes and draws a sequel or prequel to a comic he originally drew, especially when the writer of the original was Warren Ellis. Will the writing stand up to the original or will it come off as a lame vanity project? Thankfully, Red: Eyes Only manages to fit perfectly with the original series, showing that Hamner can not only capture the cynicism and nastiness of Ellis’ voice, but also the tender humanity that’s always there just below the surface. More than that, with colorist Val Staples, Hamner’s art has never looked better. He has written and drawn his best comic to date with Eyes Only."
