Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a black Library tie-in novel to the Dan Abnett/ Mark Harrison era Durham Red. Durham Red, of course, is a character from longstanding brit comic, 2000AD, and if little of that makes sense to you then I reckon this isn't the book for you.

Fans of Durham Red, however; folks who've read the Abnett/ Harrison comics and want another fix; should enjoy this. Evan's prose is both sharp and descriptive and works perfectly in bringing the comicbook world of Red & co alive. It's far from a character-driven book; Evans more invested in a twisty-turny plot and high-tempo action; but he does a bang-up job in realising Abnett's vision of Red (very different to the Strontium Dog version, by the way) and her two aides.

His world-building is both imaginative and yet clearly realised. There's a tendency, when reading sci-fi, to get lost within the less tangible elements - the tech or spaceships or alien worlds or fantastical creatures - but Evans does a fine job of keeping us with him. The storyline is very typical of the comics; lots of hoodwinking and double-crossing between our ragtag cast of anti-heroes as Red & co struggle to stay alive and do the right thing, often failing. It's pulpy as you like, 250 pages long, so there's no filler at all: this is high-octane from start to finish and all the better for it.

In short, if you enjoyed the Abnett/ Harrison Durham Red comics, you'll very likely enjoy this series. If, however, you didn't enjoy that particular era in Red's stay at 2000AD, or haven't yet read it, I wouldn't think this would appeal.

Personally, I had a blast.

Highly recommended to fans.
