Crimson

 CRI1   (Image, 1998-2001)

™ and ©1998 Humberto Ramos, Francisco Haghenbeck, & Oscar Pinto

Crimson is a rather nicely done vampire tale, rising against the odds to give a very cool, contemporary spin on the old vampire legends. Boasting superior art and remarkably fresh characterization, Crimson is a surprise.

The story centers around young Alex Elder, a teenager who had been going through a dark period leading up to the fateful night when he and three friends were ambushed in Central Park. The attackers were vampires, the latter-day offspring of God’s forgotten children. Alex is saved from complete dismemberment by the intervention of Ekimus, a creature almost as old as the world itself, but living apart from either God or Satan. Although Ekimus had saved Alex from extinction, he could not prevent Alex, from being turned into a vampire. Raging with denial at his new state, Alex ran off into the night, where he discovered that the world had a whole new dark side that he had never dreamed of before.
