Pitching itself as “Betty Draper meets Hannibal”, Lady Killer – a new series from Dark Horse Comics coming your way in January – introduces us to Josie Schuller, a housewife living a violent double life. Coming from the minds of writer Jamie S. Rich and artist Joelle Jones, the five-part series takes great pleasure in contrasting the saccharine imagery of the early 60’s with the brutality and drama of the world of the ‘hired killer’. Take a look at some preview artwork below, and keep your eyes glued to the page in the near future for an exclusive interview with both of the series’ creators.

Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother—but she’s also a ruthless, efficient killer for hire! A brand-new original comedy series that combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded survival.
* New original series by Joëlle Jones!
* Dark comedy, gritty action, and killer laughs!
“[Jones] varies her style to suit the mood of each piece, and the results can be spellbinding.”—Powell’s Books
