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.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web.

The first issue of the brand new Silver Surfer series by writer Dan Slott, artist Mike Allred and colorist Laura Allred chucks a lot of that baggage out the window, and, believe it or not, it’s all the better for it.
Ever since it spun out of the events of Schism, Wolverine and the X-Men has been hands down the most entertaining X-Men title on the stands, and easily one of the most enjoyable comics I read, period. With this month's issue, though, it somehow manages to get even better as Jason Aaron, Mike Allred and Laura Allred finally
We've been stoked for the Mike Allred and Laura Allred illustrated Daredevil #17 since the issue's cover was teased back in May, and now Marvel has revealed some preview pages that make the issue even more exciting. Why? Because Stilt-Man, that's why. Well... okay, that's not the biggest reason - the book's celebrated creative team is, and deservedly so. Set for an
On sale right now in comics shops and via DC Digital is iZombie #19, the latest issue of Chris Roberson and Michael Allred's cult hit Vertigo series about sexy zombie girl Gwen (who has to eat brains to keep from becoming a full-on unsexy zombie) and her variously dead or otherwise supernatural friends as they navigate an increasingly vibrant world of paranormal intrigue (and romance).
