Betty Draper meets Hannibal!
Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and motherâ€”but sheâ€™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 JoÃ«lle Jones!
* Dark comedy, gritty action, and killer laughs!
I’m not a huge graphic novel fan because they are over too quickly. Â I don’t like a book that is done in 20 minutes. Occasionally though I pick some up because I love the look of the art.
How can you not love the cover of Lady Killer? Â Each book ends with a fake advertisement aimed at 1960s housewives who are also assassins. Â Think of this book as Mr and Mrs Smith set in the 60s if Mr Smith wasn’t a spy.

Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900's Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both and make them the target of both human and otherworldly powers.
The art in Monstress is beautiful. Â I wasn’t that big of a fan of the story. Â I’m definitely in the minority with that opinion. Â Every other review I read is raving about this book.
I did like the two tailed cats who are obviously the smartest beings around – as cats should be.
I really enjoyed Lady Killer. I was hoping for more, but haven’t noticed a sequel yet.
Never mind. This made me go check and there is a sequel out in May. I am looking forward to it!
