    The creative team introduces a somewhat compelling main character through a mission that allows them to show off her tremendous skills, along with establishing the framework for her origin and the meaning behind the comic's title. Add in some one-note supporting characters and there's enough intrigue to keep readers coming back. Read Full Review

    I picked this up the old fashioned way. No idea what it was, just liked the cover.

    And igs pretty interesting while feeling familiar in many ways, and it manages to make a compelling main character and have some fun and modern black humor related to social media today.

    As our "hero" Nina kills through enemy guards, various individuals view her perspective from live stream and comment on her performance. Its surprisingly realistic to say the least.

    The narrative is pretty straightforward but has some nice ideas we'll see if they explore or not. This first issue ends in an interesting if formulaic fashion but what's here is pretty good.

    I'll check the next issue.
