What if the Mafia had their own secret service?

No this isn’t the tag for Madame Mirage, but rather Image Comics new mini-series Killing Girl coming this August.

Written by Glen Brunswick, the screenwriter of the upcoming film adaptation of Ex Machina, and artist Frank Espinosa tell the tale of the mafia’s secret service and the one person able to take it down from the inside.

“Everyone at Image is very excited by what’s next from Glen and Frank,” stated Eric Stephenson, Executive Director of Image Comics. “This miniseries is unlike either creator’s previous work, and it’s bound to startle an awful lot of fans in the best of ways.”

Take the jump for cover images and some really great looking art from the series.


BACKSTORY – 1986 – The Mafia is being stripped to the bone. All their heavy hitters are facing long term incarceration. The RICO statute has greatly reduced the ranks of Cosa Nostra. The CIA is also facing severe problems of its own. Budget cuts have hampered the agency’s ability to eliminate domestic threats. A DEAL is stuck between the CIA and the five families: The government will only prosecute “High Profile” cases in exchange for the Mafia’s most efficient assassination services. The public can have no knowledge of this arrangement.


Killing Girl #1 arrives August 8th with a cover price of $2.99.
