A supernatural examination of the old west is captured in this premiere issue!
With the backdrop of the wild west and a touch of the supernatural, comes Pretty Deadly issue one from writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Emma Rios. The debut offering from both deliver a fast tale filled with a multitude of characters, none of which are instantly likable, no matter how many times you force yourself to. It's hard to understand who is the protagonist here with several of the characters playing some part in the story that will eventually unfold. It's difficult to feel some sort of instant connection with Big Alice, Ginny or even the "Vulture Cloak Girl" as DeConnick portrays each of them in such a bad light, in this initial glimpse of them.
Final Verdict: 6/10
