Daisy is on another continent working for Leland Black when she begins to realize that the problems she thought she left behind in New York City have followed her all the way to London. As strange things continue to happen, Daisy finds that she has a bigger puzzle that must be solved.  

If you’ve read any of my Red Mother reviews for Outright Geekery, you know my intense love for this series. Issue 7 is great, as expected.

Jeremy Haun has created such a deeply sympathetic character in Daisy, that we as readers feel like we go through all of her struggles with her. Her pain, emotional and physical. Her move. Her frustrations with Leland Black. Even her nightmarish visions. We’re all in with Daisy. So when the torments she thought she left in New York still plague her, we feel that, too. Honestly, I don’t know that I’ve ever felt like I could actually know a character like this with any other comic, and it really elevates the tension in the story. I want to warn Daisy. I want to help her. But as a reader, I’m left helpless.

If you haven’t been reading this series, you’ve been missing out on some insanely beautiful and haunting art by Danny Luckert. While Jeremy Haun is killing it with the writing, Luckert is taking everything to the next level with some of the most surreal horror that feels realistic. It’s such a perfect balance that really nails it for me and makes this series easily one of the best of 2020. And definitely one of my favorites of all time.

Catch up on Red Mother, and then grab issue #7 now! You won’t regret it.
