    I enjoyed this issue and it's taking a nice turn to see what happens to our lovely character at the end. The writing is really good with the interplay between being a wife and a assassin. The interaction between characters are done welland the art from Joelle Jones is always good to see. Just two more issues are left in this miniseries and Iam looking forward to the next issue.

    Comics: The Gathering - Vannary Sok Mar 3, 2015

    This is by far the strongest issue in terms of Josie’s characterization. Even her handler, Mr. Peck, shows signs of depth. My only negative afterthought is that while Josie obviously cares about her family, I unfortunately don’t share those same feelings yet. Her husband Gene and their twin girls have lacked the exposure that all the other characters are receiving. They don’t say much and when they do it’s only just pleasant simple things. Otherwise, with only two issues left to the series, it’s looking like the team of Joelle Jones, Jame S. Rich and Laura Allred will prove they can get the job done, just like their main lady Josie.

    There are only two more issues left to Lady Killer. There is something woefully wrong about that sentence. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Lauren Gallo Mar 11, 2015

    What Lady Killer is doing well so far in three issues is having stand-alone stories in the form of Josie's operations, but also keeping a consistent overarching A and B plot as well, so nothing feels like filler yet. I hope this pacing keeps up and that the storytelling remains consistent because so far, so very good. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 3, 2015

    It is maybe easy enough to see where this story is going, but it doesn't even matter. The combination of the design of the characters combined with the right storytelling makes this series remain as a gem. The protagonist is deeply written and while not necessarily easy to associate with as a hero, still remains a character that the reader wants to see walk on the side of angels. The character is made to be approachable and flawed and works all the better for it. This is a now relatively short series (with only two issues left) but with the change of direction from this issue, it would appear that an engaging climax is set for this series. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Mar 3, 2015

    This is another good installment. Rich and Jones delve deeper into Josie, Peck, and even Mother Schuller. However, Stenholm remains static. There is plenty of action from a dynamic car chase to a game of hide and seek. Lady Killer remains one of the more entertaining books on the shelves with a very intriguing and conflicted protagonist battling to balance work and life, a struggle anyone can relate to.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Mar 2, 2015

    Overall, while it may have made its mark with its stunning visuals and sharply conceived concept, Lady Killer is finally starting to hit its stride in terms of the story itself, and promises a tense, emotional conclusion before alls said and done. Over the course of this one issue, leading lady Josie Schullerhas gone from intriguing enigma to genuinely compelling protagonist, and Im most definitely going to bewaiting with baited breath to find out what happens to her next.

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Mar 4, 2015

    I really enjoyed this issue and especially liked how we get more character development from Peck. Up to this point he's just been there for comedic purposes but in this issue he's there for anything but. I'd like to know more about Stenholm and the organization but I trust we'll learn some more about that in the last two issues. The art continues to be stellar and has been some of my favorite as of late. I can't go too much into detail about why I thought that because it'd be giving some of the story away, but if you liked what you saw the first two issues this will be no different. I'm really looking forward to see how this story comes to a close and I can't imagine it'll be pretty. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Mar 4, 2015

    On the downside, some would say that there are elements in play similar to other stories such as The Long Kiss Goodnight. But it is the excellence of the production that has won me over. If this is your first foray into this book, do as I have and search out the two previous issues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Mar 5, 2015

    The final act of the issue is exhilarating. Josie arrives on the scene of her assignment and the book builds tension over a few pages before erupting into an impressive action sequence. Josie lunges through the house, and the script leaves the dialogue aside and lets the story flow through the art. It is a sequence that is equal parts beautiful and harrowing as the woman and child run through the home. The book definitely does not head in the direction expected, and with only a few issues to go, it will be exciting to see just how much the creators can pack into the next few chapters. If the book is able to maintain the quality it has set for itself in these first few issues, this series will be high on people's lists for the year. Read Full Review

    GWW - Enrique Rea Mar 5, 2015

    Lady Killer really is Jones' baby as every layout is carefully designed with stunning detail and flawless action. The book just flows from panel to panel without a missed step. Jones and Rich have concocted a exciting story with a leading lady that is compelling and transcends her era. The series is hitting its stride and the conclusion is sure to be a doozy. Don't miss this one. Read Full Review

    Lots of depth shown in this issue. I assumed the worst of Josie as a cold blooded killer and this was added at the correct time. Action or suspense on each page left me loving this one.

    Lady Killer's art is exceptional. Just the colors and the retro environments makes for just a classically and beautifully drawn comic. The story though teeters on predictable and unpredictable. Predictable because we know the outcome of her next assignment just by looking at her target. And Unpredictable for the new conflict the arises at the end of the book. It's a good book. I love the art the story teeters on dull but usually leads to a twist which is what most readers want.
