Today is your last chance to tell your retailer that you want to take a chance on the inaugural issue of Jamie Rich’s and Joëlle Jones’ gritty Dark Horse series “Lady Killer“. The first issue will debut on Wednesday, Jan. 7.
LADY KILLER #1 | Joëlle Jones | Jamie S. Rich | Laura Allred
Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother—but she’s also a ruthless, efficient killer for hire! A brand-new original comedy series that combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded survival.
* New original series by Joëlle Jones!
* Dark comedy, gritty action, and killer laughs!
“[Jones] varies her style to suit the mood of each piece, and the results can be spellbinding.”—Powell’s Books
Jones killed it with Cullen Bunn on their badass viking comic “Helheim“, so it should be interesting to see her style applied to this upcoming “Mad Men” meets “Dexter” ongoing series. Rich’s known for his editorial hand in the infamous Allred’s “Madmad” and IT Girl comics. (Unfortunately I don’t have a copy of the new 3-D issue. That’s on top of my Christmas list.) I really enjoyed his bold writing on “Archer Coe and the Thousand Natural Shocks” original graphic novel with French based artist Dan Christensen. I noticed on Christensen’s Facebook feed that he’s working on the second volume, so look out for that as well.
Rich as was kind enough to share the upcoming “Lady Killer” covers numero #2 (hits stands on Feb. 4) & #3. Art by Jones and colors by the mighty Laura Allred:
