Kelly Sue DeConnick is one of the most prominent writers in comics today, with acclaimed runs on Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel, and Ghost. Pretty Deadly, DeConnick’s fantasy western with artist Emma Ríos (Doctor Strange, Osborn), debuted in October 2013 to stellar reviews, and immediately sold out on release date.
Pretty Deadly Volume 1 presents the collected opening arc of Kelly Due DeConnick and Emma Ríos’ surprise-hit series, which 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!
Pretty Deadly Volume 1 will be available for purchase for just $9.99. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet one of the hottest writers in comics April 30 at the Portland TFAW!

‘68: RULE OF WAR #1 from Image Comics
Writer: Mark Kidwell • Artist: Jeff Zornow, Jay Fotos
In a doom-shadowed Cambodia infested with the living dead, CIA Special Agent Declan Rule and his canine companion Nero stalk a human monster, a neurosurgeon bent on carrying out grisly experiments that turn P.O.W.s into vicious instruments of war. In Vietnam, Private Kuen Yam and his ragtag band of survivors battle their way across a murderous no-man’s-land in a desperate search for a ticket to the skies. The war is over, but the battle for humanity’s survival has just begun. Courage will be tested, sanity will be pushed to the breaking point and the rules of war… will be broken.
