The dark and gritty realism of the brutal opener pulled me in instantly…The Red Ten could be a fun romp of a super hero mystery.
THE RED TEN is the kinda comic that doesn’t come around very often. A truly excellent indie title that needs to be shoved into every comic loving fans grubby fingers. It’s good. Really good.
We’ve got no way of knowing which books making their debut at NYCC 2011 are going to be awesome, but some have us frothing. Case in point, THE RED TEN, by Tyler James and Cesar Feliciano. This comic has an awesome premise: a female, Batman-style, World’s Greatest Detective is found murdered, and the prime suspect is, obviously, her Joker-equivalent. Things aren’t as simple as they seem, however, and when the dead heroine’s teammates get involved, things get really grisly.

I truly enjoyed the first issue of The Red Ten and I’m looking forward to the next issue.
4 out of 5 stars! The story is well paced. James does good with laying out the beginning, leaving the big mystery until the end…I enjoyed the Agatha Christie novel and this is shaping up to be a book I’ll enjoy as well.
Buy! I got to the end and had a smile on my face…The art is solid, pacing great, everything is top notch.”
It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out and I hope to see some creative ways for these characters to die. This is what’s going to keep me coming back and reading more…I’ve never read “And Then There Were None”, but it’s on my Nook now waiting for me start it. The next issue of “The Red Ten” will be right there next to it.
What the hell is going on with this book called, The Red Ten? Is this a perfect example of someone taking a piss? Or was this just one of the coolest comic books that I had never heard of?
We’re thrilled when we get to support local creators not just because they’re local, but also because they create a damn good book! Can’t wait for the next issue.

The Red Ten #1 is a fascinating premise. There’s potential for a great dynamic between the remaining members of the Alliance as each of them are picked off and the group comraderie dissolves. The reader will learn that even superhero supergroups are subject to the same base emotions of suspicion as the rest of us.
