Into the Wild

Read Pretty Deadly, Vol. 1: The Shrike Online Free - 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.

Absolutely brilliant storytelling and mind-blowing art combine to make a story that you'll want to read again the instant you finish it.

Pretty Deadly Volume 1 should come with a beret, it’s so art school-y. Writing-wise that is as, while Kelly Sue DeConnick’s writing and storytelling is dull and pretentious, Emma Rios and Jordie Bellaire bring their A-game to the art. Pretty Deadly’s a western set sometime in 19th century America...

Pretty Deadly reinvents the spaghetti western as feminist, artsy, often experimental, surreal, metaphorically charged sub-genre that is a far cry from your typical contemporary superhero story. It’s a unique reading experience: unnecessarily difficult in places (though it did not feel pretentious...

11/24/17 - ON SALE for $3.99: Reviewed by: Rabid Reads There's a special kind of chaos that went into the creation of PRETTY DEADLY. The installments begin from the POV of a bunny and a butterfly and are told with fable-like flair, but as the main characters are human, there'...

Err… What the hell what that? Apart from a deadly pretentious, deadly uninteresting, deadly boring piece of utter confusion? I don't read many comics so I might have missed something here. Something that might have helped me understand why so many reviewers rave about Pretty Deadly. Some critics...

OK, seriously...what the fuck was that? "So Ms. DeConnick, what exactly were you hoping to accomplish here? Did you have a plot or plan for this to make more sense? Was there a reason for things?" "I see. Butterfly and a dead bunny? Care to elaborate on the symbolism you've used here for our narrat...

There is A LOT of weird stuff going on in Pretty Deadly, Volume 1: The Shrike; from a skeleton bunny narration to a butterfly….. Skel-a-bunny!!! (if you know me, you know I have an obsession with skele-creatures – Not like Kelly does but so few can rank with her, really – and one of my all time fa...

Second in my lineup of Keith Reads All The Image, I went for Pretty Deadly. The first time I read it I realized by the second chapter that I had absolutely no idea what was happening, and by the fourth chapter I decided I was just going to have to slog through it to get the beats down, and read i...

Today, on a whim, I devoured this first volume of a female created black fantasy-western hybrid, I revelled in it's often incredible and evocative artwork and became engrossed in it's narrative despite being unsure of exactly what was happening until almost the final pages when things tied togeth...

More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog Pretty Deadly is a lyrical, fairytale type of story set in the Old West but firmly rooted in folklore and fables. Seemingly disparate threads slowly converge as the story unfolds, creating a mersmerizing story of love and...
