I had the privilege of reading the new Image series by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios, Pretty Deadly. Teased last year at Comic-Con, the anticipation and fanbase that has grown for a book that doesn’t see its first issue released until tomorrow is remarkable. The Pretty Deadly Tumblr is alive with fanart and cosplayers making plans to be Death’s daughter, Ginny, at their next con.
Admittedly, that teaser image is exquisite and you’d have to be dead not to be at least a little bit curious. I wasn’t disappointed by the book. It’s an original experience that you can really sink your teeth into. It gets bonus points for having a lady writer, a lady artist, a lady colorist AND a lady editor.
Fuck yeah! Women making comics.
