Redneck finishes its first arc with a whole lot of exposition. Cates basically uses the final third of the comic to do a pitch for the next arc, without revealing anything about it except who’s going to be in it.
Estherren does get a nice action scene to do, but not even all of it. The action moves off-panel pretty quick. It’s nice art throughout, even during the setup stuff.
Once again, an ongoing indie is ending an arc with a soft reboot of the comic itself. We’ll see if Cates can keep Redneck going. Luckily, Estherren will always be able to make the art work right.
