    I'll preface this with I haven't read the Red Rising novels yet. But I figured since this is a prequel I shouldn't need to. A lot of the world building that I'm sure is in the novels, has been glossed over here, so in that respect, I felt a bit lost in the first issue. Once it started ...

    Really intriguing graphic novel here for someone who doesn't read a lot of graphic novels but wants to read more. Obviously what makes this novel great is the Red Rising connection of course and that was my reasoning for requesting this in the first place, I wasn't disappointed by i...

    The Red Rising trilogy was a very pleasant surprise for me. I'm not a huge fan of scifi or dystopias, but after hearing all the blurb about these books I gave them a chance, and ended up falling in love with the world and characters created by Pierce Brown. I'm really excited to see th...

    This was a fun little backstory for Fitchner, and how he became who he was. The story is a fast paced action adventure about Fitchner trying to get by despite being the outcast, the black-sheep, yet he excels past his peers. When he falls in love and has a baby with a Red all is go...

    So this was a good-but-not-great sidepiece to Brown's Red Rising series, covering the backstory of [REDACTED], [REDACTED #2]'s birth, and the origins of the Sons of Ares. For fans of the series, it was interesting to read, but nothing happened that really shocked me (though there's a f...

    Pierce Brown?s Red Rising: Sons of Ares enlightens us to what happened before the YA Red Rising Trilogy, as told by Fitchner. Brown, writing with Rik Hoskin (Heroes of Skyrealm, Brandon Sanderson?s White Sand) provides us with an insight to how a caste system begins to break do...

    This graphic novel is a prequel to the Red Riding series and gives us the backstory of Fitchner Au Barca and the beginning of Sevro. I really enjoyed seeing how Ares came to be, along with visually seeing all the colors and even seeing a Razor in action. Pretty cool. ...

    4.5 Stars! ...

    I?m not a fan of the Red Rising novel series. I think it?s safe to state that seeing that I?ve never successfully made it through the first book without falling asleep. I want to like it ? there?s no reason I shouldn?t like it- but the audible version just hits my snooze bu...

    Artistry? 3.5 stars Story? 5 stars Wow. Hello and welcome to the first book by Pierce Brown I?ve rated below 5. Truly it?s because of the artistry. I get that Fitchner is weathered/rugged... but you never see his eyes and I?m sorry but a gold should not have that many wrinkle...

    Strictly for fans of the series, the story itself is good, the art disappointing for an overall mediocre experience. Not enough of the world is shown for newcomers to appreciate the world of Red Rising, those who will come from reading the series will be disappointed with the limite...

    Great art work and great background to one of the most interesting characters in the Red Rising series. ...

    A graphic novel prequel to the Red Rising series? An interesting concept executed wonderfully. It was really cool to see the world in color even if the art wasn't my favorite. I received an ecopy of this through Netgalley; however all opinions are my own. ...

    A great insight into another aspect of the Red Rising 'verse. I wanted a bit more detail though. ...

    ?Red Rising: Sons of Ares? is a must for any diehard Red Rising fan. The backstory of how it all began is interesting, and I hope it continues. One of my favorite touches was that the text bubbles matched the color of whoever was speaking. Anyone who hasn?t read the books first p...

    Not a great fan of the art in this, but it was nice to see things like the torchships and spring razors in action. The art's kind of muddy and sketchy throughout--would love to see this in the hands of a more talented artist. But the story is what makes this worthwhile. You get to see ...

    I am a big fan of the Red Rising series and I was delighted to read this comic book which is a prequel to the original saga. Here we will follow the story of the Sevro's father and how he will fall in love with his mother a Red and the complications that entails. I must say that thi...

    4.5 stars I am a die-hard Red Rising fan, so I was thrilled when I learned that Dynamite would be publishing a prequel to the series. In fact, I purchased and read the single issues each week that they were released. I'm impatient. Overall, I really loved the graphic novel. Powel...

    Artistry? 3.5 stars Story? 5 stars Wow. Hello and welcome to the first book by Pierce Brown I?ve rated below 5. Truly it?s because of the artistry. I get that Fitchner is weathered/rugged... but you never see his eyes and I?m sorry but a gold should not have that many wrinkle...

    Strictly for fans of the series, the story itself is good, the art disappointing for an overall mediocre experience. Not enough of the world is shown for newcomers to appreciate the world of Red Rising, those who will come from reading the series will be disappointed with the limite...

    Great art work and great background to one of the most interesting characters in the Red Rising series. ...
