Below is a blurb from the press release:
He is Redman, the Kaiju Hunter… Trapped in a desolate and yet somehow familiar world populated with an vast array of the ferocious beasts known as “Kaiju,” Redman continues his endless Red Fight, battling tirelessly to cull the monsters.
With each fierce battle, the blood-spattered “hero” sinks closer to his prey, and a sinister form watches and records his every move…
The first volume of Redman, “Kaiju Hunter,” collects chapters 1 to 5 of the brand new comic series based closely on Tsuburaya Productions’ 1972 cult classic. “King of Kaiju” Matt Frank, recognized worldwide for his work as main artist of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, makes his debut as showrunner, and is joined by his frequent collaborator and Godzilla colorist Goncalo Lopez on colors.
