Snagged @ The Library Review: Pretty Deadly by Kelly Sue DeConnickSource: Library Borrowed

Format: Paperback

Pretty Deadly, Vol. 1: The Shrike by Kelly Sue DeConnick, Emma Ríos

Date Read: April 2015

Genre: Graphic Novel

KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel) and EMMA RÍOS (Dr. Strange, Osborn) present the collected opening arc of their surprise-hit series that 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.

First Thought when Finished: Pretty Deadly by Kelly Sue DeConnick is probably the best graphic novel that I have read.

Quick Thoughts: I am not a huge graphic novel person mostly because I love words–lots of words! However, Pretty Deadly managed to combine a pretty kick ass story with graphics that told a whole story to me. That is unusual as I am usually left wanting. Perhaps the more horror centric graphic novels are my thing. Who knows!
