Can’t make it to the next comic convention? Fear not, Major Spoilers is bringing you a whole lot of sneak peeks to keep you occupied, while your friends are hanging out with the big names in comics.

We’ll kick things off today with sneak peeks from Image Comics featuring Killing Girl, Bonds, Bomb Queen, Tellos, In Her Darkest Hour, and The Astounding Wolfman.

Of all of these titles shipping next week, Killing Girl is going to be the top of my list – the mafia’s own secret service? That’s gotta rock.

KILLING GIRL #1 (OF 5)
story GLEN BRUNSWICK, art & cover FRANK ESPINOSA
32 PAGES, FC, $2.99

What if the Mafia had their own secret service…?

Sara doesn’t remember her real name. What she does know is that she traded away misery as a former prostitute and became a world-class killing machine.

When a routine hit goes sour, Sara makes a shocking discovery: Suppressed memories, haunting her since childhood, are in fact TRUE! And her REAL family, presumed dead, may actually still be alive.

She begins to wonder about her life that could have been. Is it too late to reclaim her humanity? No one has ever retired from the Cosa Nostra secret service and lived.
