SCARLET! This is the comic experience of the year! The first creator-owned series by one of the most successful teams in all of modern comics, SCARLET is the story of a woman pushed to the edge by all that’s wrong with the world. A woman who decides to stand up and fight back.

A woman who will not back down. A woman who discovers within herself the power to start a modern American revolution! In the vein of ALIAS, POWERS and JINX, SCARLET debuts a fascinating new comics character who, with every issue, reveals new things about herself against a completely original backdrop of intrigue and drama.

This Premiere collection of the first creator-owned series by Bendis since POWERS – and the first-ever creator-owned series by Maleev – includes tons of extras, a look at the first-issue script by Bendis with new illustrations by Maleev, an all-star cover gallery and more!

Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev

  1. I didn’t know this was going to be the premium, oversized format. I might be switching to trades…

  2. Most things that are hollow and insubstantial on the back end need to be offset with extra sizzle and glitter on the front.  

  3. What don’t you like about it? Just curious…

  4. For starters, how about BMB’s pretentious yet banal writing.  How about contiouously breaking the 4th wall.  How issue 4 ended without a bang after all the culmination.  “The revolution felt around the world…” How self aggrandizing. It’s like a mosquito floating down the river on his back with a hard-on, yelling, “raise the draw bridge!”   The crowd needed a discharge and I, as the reader, needed something more than the predictable cop who overreacts,  giving scarlet the easy way out.  What a fat let down, but I should have known judging from BMB’s lackluster style.  Sorry, but I need to see more than a preachy Seattle grunge leftist who was wronged by a crooked dick combined with the usual Naziesque cops & intra-bickering feds.  So stereotypical.  #4 was my last issue so I can’t speak as to the direction it now heads. 

  5. Haha, that was a pretty funny explanation and I agree for the most part. I just stuck around a little longer and I really liked the last issue. I’m no BMB fan and I’m just about tired of the revolutionist mindset. This was my first BMB/Maleev book, but I really like Moon Knight a lot more (do you read that series?) So I might just trade wait and see where it goes. And I am a big fan of Premium HC trades, better value and much nicer than the original issues.

  6. @Funcrusher, not reading Moonknight and I agree about ultra premium HC Trades.  I just bought the Walt Simonson Thor compendium and enjoying it to a surprising degree for an old school superhero comic.  The list topper would be two HC series I’d recommend to you:  Charley’s War and Locke & Key.  You’ll not find better in all of comic lore.
