Episode 24 - Maybe It’s Irony? - Red One #1

September 25, 2015

This one's a bit of a puzzler. When you tell the story of a sexy woman super-agent set against a backdrop of the California porn industry, featuring lots of prominent cleavage and a very male gazey perspective, even if it's meant to be ironic, is it actually still just a bit sexist? And more importantly, is it actually any good? These and others are the questions we face in reviewing issue one of Red One from Image Comics, by Xavier Dorison, Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson.

And as Red One is above all else a Soviet sexy super-agent and it's Jared's turn at Top Three/Worst One Ever, he's making his pick of Soviet/Russian super-characters. Astonishingly, he doesn't pick Colossus. Or, to Jon's annoyance, Darkstar.
