Viz Media exclusives for Comic-Con 2014

This week's fun at San Diego's Comic-Con International isn't just about stuff you can buy.

Lady Killer: Joëlle Jones’ New Project Finds The Happy Medium Between Homemaking and Homicide

Untitled-1

Some of the stories Americans love most are those that put the lie to our prevailing visions of ourselves. The work of David Lynch, who peels back the the saccharine layers of suburbia to reveal unspeakable horrors within; Mad Men, with its systematic deconstruction of everything we think we believe about success in this country; and Breaking Bad, which shows us how even the most seemingly wholesome members of society can be monsters waiting to break free.

If you think all that sounds well and good but probably a little too stuffy, Josie Schuller would probably agree with you. Josie is a young housewife living post-war America. She sells makeup door-to-door, she takes care of her twin kids and the family dog, she makes dinner for her husband, and she suffers her endlessly disapproving mother-in-law. That is, when she's not murdering people in astonishingly violent ways.

Josie's a highly trained assassin, and the paradox that is her life comes courtesy of cartoonist Joélle Jones and co-writer Jamie S. Rich, whose new Dark Horse series Lady Killer invites readers into a weirdly alluring story that follows a grand tradition of subverting Americana, but with a uniquely wicked, black comedy twist and what Josie might even say is a woman's touch.

django zorro

Dynamite Entertainment plans to make a big splash at this year's San Diego Comic-Con to mark its 10th year in the business, and part of its plans involves a celebratory panel bringing together several of its star creators -- including one of the talents behind their new Django/Zorro comic, one Quentin Tarantino.

Tarantino is what one might call an "emerging" talent in the world of comics, but he's enjoyed some success in the field of film-making with pictures like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and the prequel to the Django/Zorro commic, Django Unchained. Tarantino will be joined on the panel by two of his collaborators on the project, Matt Wagner and Reginald Hudlin.
