Red 5: Foster Broussard: Demons of the Gold Rush #1

This 5 issue mini series is available from Red 5 Comics as a day-and-date release.

There is some great story telling in this issue, as well as some slick art. There are some great mixes of characters in this issue and some building towards something mysterious. I would highly recommend this and look forward to reading the whole series!

In 1849, suave British con-man Foster Broussard comes to San Francisco hoping to find his fortune and save his neck in the California gold rush. His multi-layer grift spins out of control as he stumbles between an American Industrialist and an ancient evil spirit held in check by a Native American tribe

 

Inspired by multi-power team-up books like “X-Men” and sweeping supernatural adventureslike “Pirates of the Caribbean”, series creator Trevor Pryce found 19th century California tobe the perfect setting for FOSTER.“I liked the thought of a place where there was no law,” Pryce said. “People were arrivingby the boatloads from around the world. The language barrier made it impossible to writea cohesive set of laws. So instead, law was brandished in the streets. Natives already therewere ignored or appeased. The resulting mix of people, experiences, and lawlessness madefor a unique time and place in history.”Providing dynamic artwork for the project is two-time Will Eisner scholarship winner, DanGlasl. The period tone is set with colors by Adam Guzowski, veteran of titles like “Proof”and “A Dummy’s Guide to Danger”. Nick Schley (“Abiding Perdition”, “Worlds of Dungeonsand Dragons” and “Farscape: Gone and Back”) joins with fluid inks starting on the secondissue. Lettering comes from the talented and prolific Troy Peteri (“Witchblade”, “Spiderman”,“The Incredibles” and many more).An interesting side-note, while series creator Trevor Pryce is earning a reputation as aninnovative storyteller with television and motion picture deals, he is best known for hisfour-time Pro Bowl, two-time Super Bowl championship career as a tight end for the NFL’sDenver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens, and New York Jets.“For a big, brutal man who works a violent day job, he has a real family sensibility,” ABC TVproducer Mike Fleiss recently told the New York Times of Pryce. “He likes those fantasticalideas that inspire the imagination.”
