Mister Crimson is the story of a pulp-era superhero that has been abducted through time. Taken from the 1930s, and sent 200 years into the future he is forced to take up fisticuffs against a rebellion that hopes to overthrow the city’s leaders. Mister Crimson is used to scraping his knuckles on shifty criminal types– but here, he is forced to take on mutants and cyborgs who have powers that match his own. But Crimson was selected for this task specifically. His futuristic handlers know that in a word, he is unbreakable.Visually and at it’s heart it reminded me of Will Eisner’s The Spirit and it also felt like it had a bit of the Midnighter thrown in there to. It has a nice aesthetic and it will be interesting to see where the story takes the character — all the props are in place and I can’t wait to see how Tripodi moves them around.
