John Carpenters Tales of Science Fiction: Redhead #5 – Comic Review

For three days now, Marnie Young has been desperate to learn the reason for her freakish condition (involuntarily killing anyone who ventures too close to her). But when the horrifying answers finally come, she’ll long for those more innocent days, when she was just murdering doctors and nurses in her sleep.

After four issues from starting this journey with Marnie Young, there’s finally a light at the end. It opens up just like the way it was going to in Issue #1, continuing from there within the 29 pages (shortest issue I believe) we find out there’s more to this “gift” has the Government says. Poland, India and other countries. Trying to secure it and help those fulfill their purpose.

After Paul or, Infectious Disease Guy helps Ms. Young in the final action sequence of saving her life and others. It was now under control, it took longer to help her understand what needed to be done, but positive thinking can accomplish a lot of great things. Because of the finale stand and Paul (IDG), it seems Ms. Young and Paul may have a brighter future of what is to come with a purpose of the next chapter. If we still a “Season 2”, hence my comment about seeing Redhead as a TV series.

John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Redhead can leave readers pleased and have a nice little ending to the whole atmosphere of what has been lingering around this whole time. Watching from the skies as the fate of humanity struggle to control what they do not know, like in real life. Instead of trying to maintain it and control the situation when the best time is or was. We leave it to long that it’s no longer containable and becomes stronger than we intentionally wanted. Sound familiar? Look at the current situation in the world today, COVID-19 was first mentioned back in November 2019. Our Government nor did any country except where it started, tried to maintain as quickly as possible before it was no longer containable. Marnie Young was the “threat”, they tried to maintain the situation, however made it worse due to not knowing what to do.

“Marnie Young’s story is a great example of a real world situation. Almost like living the subliminal messages hidden within.”

What gets even more weirder is, look at the last story I mentioned real life events about. John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Surviving Nuclear Attack, soon we all will be needing to not “lose our minds” in a “bomb shelter”. Because now we are quarantined inside our houses to help stop COVID-19, I don’t know if this is some sort of coincidence or not. But if we start looking at the way comics are being written, maybe our future lies within someone’s or different people’s stories. After all, it is a “mad world” full of twists and turns soon to come.
