Attendees are encouraged to dress in their best ’60s party attire, though it is not required.

    Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother–but she’s also a ruthless, efficient killer-for-hire. A brand-new original comic book series that combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded survival. Mixing together elements of characters like Hannibal Lecter and Betty Draper, Lady Killer is sure to be a great read that is unlike any other comic out there.

    Copies of Lady Killer #1 will be available for purchase at the event. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet the creators behind this exciting new book and get the first issue signed by the creative team January 7 at the Portland TFAW!
