    Is anyone else troubled by the imagery of a nearly-naked bleeding woman staggering around like a zombie? I don’t read Painkiller Jane (mostly because of bias that she came out of the same wave of comics that birthed the “Bad Girl” craze) but I’m wondering how successful this is going to be in hooking any NEW readers.

    I don’t want to dump on anybody’s fave-rave comic or anything, but this preview makes the book look pretty misogynistic and exploitive to me.

    Or did I miss something important?

    I’ve got something coming up later this week that fits your question and should spawn some discussion.

    In answer to hooking new readers, I think the SciFi channel TV series will bring the readers to the pages (or at least that is what Dynamite and SciFi are hoping).

    Oh, and don’t worry, she’s feeling a lot better by issue #2.
