Red Team
An seven-issue comic book from Dynamite Entertainment, written by Garth Ennis with art by Craig Cermak and covers by Howard Chaykin, Red Team is a crime story set in and around New York City.

A major crimes unit within the NYPD, Red Team, has been pursuing a particularly ruthless drug dealer for some time, and in so doing has inadvertently eliminated most of his competitors. When the dealer in question arranges for the death of a fellow cop and subsequently has the man who pulled the trigger assassinated, leaving them with nothing to go on, the Red Team proceeds to step outside the law.

  • Author Tract: Like a lot of Ennis's work in 2012 and 2013, time is made for some anger at the Catholic church and its pedophilia scandals.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: One of the team's chosen victims is a fairly blatant stand-in for Bernie Madoff.
  • Dirty Cop
  • Gone Horribly Right: The plan to take out Clinton Days in issue #1. The problem is that it goes off absolutely flawlessly, thus encouraging the Red Team to do it again.
  • Schedule Slip: There was a fairly massive gap between issues #2 and #3 which killed a lot of the book's word of mouth. Similarly, several months passed between issues #6 and #7.
