Covers for Red Film Tie-In Comics Released

Red: Eyes Only by Cully Hamner

In early October, just before the theatrical release of Red, adapted from the graphic crime novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, DC Comics imprint Wildstorm will publish a prequel to the novel titled Red: Eyes Only, written and illustrated by Hamner. Not a film tie-in per se, but with a storyline more closely related to the original source. (See more about the film, including trailers, here and here.)

About a month ago, Hamner mentioned on his blog that Wildstorm was also releasing four one-off comics featuring each of the principal actors from the film, and he did the art for each. Today, /Film posted an exclusive look at these covers; smaller versions are shown below. These comics are scheduled to be on sale September 15th.

Finally, DC Comics is re-releasing the original graphic novel later this year, to coincide with the release of the film. We'll have more about that closer to its publication date.
