This is a tongue-in-cheek collection about a 1950’s housewife, who moonlights as an assassin. It could use a little more tongue and less cheek, but otherwise it’s fairly entertaining.
The writing gets talky and bogged down midway when the killer agency overlord questions mom’s continued usefulness...

More like 4 and a half stars!
This was just what I needed (along with a big glass of pinot noir). Thank you Joe, for bringing it to my attention: I ran over to the comic book store at lunch to get it and just devoured it! I am just crazy for the vintage 50’s look, but I also love a bit of murder-m...

This is the story of Josie, in the 1960s. Wife, mother, assassin for hire. She likes to choke and stab people. Although it deals with the struggles women faced at the time when balancing work and family in an age that treated them the way it did, it still dealt very well, with what I assume, is t...

Surprisingly entertaining. I requested this from my library on a whim, after passing by requesting it from Netgalley. I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger, so to speak. The entire gimmick of the book is juxtaposing an idyllic view of 1960s housewives with assassins. Yes, it is basically a one tr...

A mostly by-the-numbers exploration of a woman who is both a homemaker and assassin. Set in 1940 (the San Francisco World's Fair is featured), it has all the chauvinism you could ask for. Which, of course, Josie takes full advantage of as the deadly siren using her targets' baser instincts to lur...

I bloody loved this graphic novel!
Lady Killer follows the kick-ass antics of Josie Schuller, a seemingly average 1960s housewife who balances her momsy role with gory assassinations. I quickly came to love Josie - her heart is in the right place and she dotes on her family, plus she's one feisty...
