The Red Mother #2 Review

This week, Daisy’s visions get much worse.

Last week, Daisy lost her boyfriend and her eye in a horrific attack. To make matters worse, her new prosthetic eye is giving her some pretty horrific visions.

This week, those visions get much worse.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Snappy, Spoiler-Lite Recap

  • Not sure what’s creepier: Your presumed dead boyfriend showing up in your room or him saying “I always loved watching you sleep”.
The Red Mother #2 Review
  • “She is coming…she needs you…”
  • I don’t know, Daisy–pain meds are probably still okay to be taking at this point.
  • If there’s one place people won’t really care about someone having a mental breakdown, it’s on the subway.
  • What the hell is that?

The Verdict

On one hand, I absolutely love the atmosphere and aesthetic of this series so far. Everything Danny Luckert draws looks good, but the demonic entity haunting Daisy is genuinely unsettling.

As far as Jeremy Haun’s script goes, he does a superb job of fleshing out Daisy as a character. Unfortunately, the narrative around her feels almost completely stalled. Aside from the opening and a truly perplexing last page, not much happens to move the story forward. The scary stuff is good, but it would be nice to understand a bit more about what’s happening to Daisy after two issues.

That being said, Red Mother is still good enough to stay on the pull list for now.

Is it good?
Aside from the opening and a truly perplexing last page, not much happens to move the story forward. The scary stuff is good, but it would be nice to understand a bit more about what's happening to Daisy after two issues. That being said, Red Mother is still good enough to stay on the pull list for now.
The artwork by Danny Luckert is great, particularly how he draws the demonic entity haunting Daisy.
Jeremy Huan does a fantastic job fleshing out Daisy as a character.
Unfortunately, the story doesn't feel like it's going anywhere yet.
The last page is supposed to be surprising, but it honestly just doesn't make any sense.
