Written by BRANDON JERWA • Art by CEZAR RAZEK
Cover by BRETT BOOTH

Thief. Adventurer. Savior. Liar. These are just a few of the words used to
describe VALA MAL DORAN. Before joining up with the heroes of STARGATE SG-1, Vala lived a life of dangerous intergalactic crime, always managing to stay one step ahead of the law…and the lawless. In her debut solo comic series, Vala’s checkered past comes back to haunt her far more noble present, as a fast-paced space heist story becomes a shell game – with the fate of the universe up for grabs. Anyone can play, but remember the rule: keep one eye on your money and one eye on the lady at all times…

This volume contains:
Issues one through five of the hit series by Brandon Jerwa (Battlestar Galactica) and Cezar Razek (Zorro).
All of the series covers by Brett Booth (Anita Blake) and up-and-coming Dynamite cover artist Chasen Grieshop.

“If you like Stargate and especially if you like Vala, you’ll love this comic.” – Geek with Curves
