Marvin Boggs is one of the C.I.A.¹s top infiltration men and his latest mission sends him down a dark, strange path where he learns that the mission this time around is himself! If he can¹t trust himself, how can he trust anyone else?
RED: VICTORIA SPECIAL #1, written by Jon Hoeber with art by David Hahn.
Victoria is a beautiful and vibrant 30-year-old woman in her prime and MI6¹s top assassin.

RED: JOE SPECIAL #1, written by Doug Wagner with art by Bruno Redondo.
Joe is an old hand at missions for the C.I.A., but even he raises an eyebrow at his latest assignment: face-to-face personnel reviews with deep cover operatives IN the field.

RED: FRANK SPECIAL #1, written by Gregory Noveck with art by Jason Masters.
Frank Moses is the C.I.A.¹s top agent, and his latest mission is to tutor a gifted young agent on a mission to Cairo. First lesson to learn: no personal attachments…a lesson that could cause both men their lives!
