Format: Paperback
This is a Vampires & Pirates crossover story. It's actually better than it sounds, and there are lots of twists and turns in the story to keep it going over the three book series.

Unfortunately, the original comic was cancelled after thirteen issues so book 3 ended in a very rushed way but this first book (collecting the first four issues) was vey promising indeed. With it moody and atmospheric art, one wonders what could have been if the series had been able to continue...

biased 25 Nov. 2005
By Kieron M. Dwyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback

I am Kieron Dwyer, one part of the SEA OF RED team, so this isn't really a review. I actually wanted to respond to "Bob's" review, which is inaccurate (although I'm glad that he at least LIKES the book).

SEA OF RED isn't a 6 issues series, it is an ongoing series, and all the trade collections will collect 4 issue arcs (5-8, 9-12, et al). While he might have made this error based on the fact that there are currently only 6 issues of the series in print, it is NOT a limited series, and all published issues will eventually be released in collected form.

I'd also like to take issue with his calling us "cheap bastards:" in fact, this book is priced at 8.95 cover price (probably cheaper through Amazon) for four issues, which were originally 2.99 each. So instead of charging the 12 dollars (or more) that a collection COULD HAVE cost, we offfered it at a substantial discount (which cuts directly into our profits). We did this to help encourage people who were unable to obtain the SOLD OUT first few issues of this series get onboard at a reasobale price. We are anything but "cheap."

A Stand-Out 18 April 2006
By Chris Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't read many new graphic novels or comics these days (I'm fifty years old), but my son said I had to read this. He claimed it was worth my attention. Boy, was he ever right about that-- the art, the writing, the whole package is PERFECT! Can't wait to read the subsequent volumes.

The thing reads like a brilliant set of storyboards for a smash movie. The art (sometimes reminding me of Gene Colan's old stuff) is evocative of mist and rot... that's a *good* thing here. The plot recalls Tim Powers' classic novel "On Stranger Tides," mixing pirates with the undead. Horror-fantasy doesn't get better than that, and "Sea of Red" is of the same calibre.

Well worth seeking out!

When a creator actually comes here to defend his work, ... 25 Nov. 2005
By F. Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
you know that he's passionate about what he's done and that he's willing to stand by it. The creators aren't "cheap" at all. Great art, unique story, and an all around satisfying read.
Pirates and vampires a great blend 12 Dec. 2005
By Randy Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The artwork in this trade is in itself enough to recommend to buy it. They should really show a preview of the inside. It is done in an great blend of black white and red tones. Add that to a killer plot line about vanpire pirates and you have a great read. I'm so stoked that the second version is out. The first part where they set up the story could not have been done any better as far as I'm concerned. There's no wonder they sold out the first issues.
Random Comic Review - Sea of Red 26 May 2013
By Joshua S. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think I may be in the minority on this, but I really wasn't wowed by this book, and I honestly would give it a 3.5. Though I think the art style and coloring of the book caused me to increase that review to a 4 star. I try to think about what I didn't like about this book. I guess I just have the feeling that I wasn't really floored by the story. While it has some good elements to it, the story didn't completely gel to me. I don't want give away any part of the story, so I'll just say there are some parts of the book that just feel rushed and out of sync (especially the first half). Another reason I would give this book 4 stars instead of 3 is that by the last couple of chapters I did really find myself enjoying the book. While some comics kind of squander towards the end of a volume this one seemed to amp things up. I definitely think the ending of the book got me more interested in the series and makes me sort of want to see where it is going. Overall there are some really good parts to the story, and the artwork/inking are really enjoyable. However, I just felt some of the story just didn't give me a wow factor that I was looking for in this story.
