Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are — or how they got there.

DISCUSSION

PRETTY DEADLY VOLUME 1: THE SHRIKE
Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist: Emma Rios
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $9.99
KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel) and EMMA RÍOS (Dr. Strange, Osborn) present the collected opening arc of their surprise-hit series that marries the magical realism of Sandman with the western brutality of Preacher. Death’s daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her origin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage.
