Issue #3 sees Red Room focus on some new characters once again.
We open with Levee Turks, a man imprisoned by the FBI for making the Red Rooms possible (irony fans – Tor, on which the dark web runs IRL, was made by the US Military), being given a poacher-turned-gamekeeper deal to crack the red room software.
We of course get more of Ed Piskor’s spectacular gore. It’s entirely gratuitous, and that’s very much the point. You can be shocked and/or repulsed by it, or you can admire the detail. I guess I’ve seen a lot of heavy metal album covers and bad horror films.
Levee tries to explore some angles with the Feds, who are typically unhelpful. We see an old friend in a different situation, and we get a little twist you might see coming.
This issue adds another layer of intrigue to the story, and it will be interesting to see how these strands come together. I’ve never read anything quite like it.
