So...once upon a time, a suburban housewife spent her nights as a mobster-murdering assassin, named JENNIFER BLOOD. Then she died...or did she? Because in the cozy cul-de-sacs of Bountiful, Utah, a noticeable number of normal people have gone missing. And by "normal," I mean "mobsters under witness protection." And by "missing," I mean killed by someone that looks, sounds, and murders a lot like JENNIFER BLOOD...
By FRED VAN LENTE (Wolverine) and VINCENZO FEDERICI (Red Sonja)!

    JENNIFER BLOOD (VOL. 2) #1 is everything you could possibly want in a vengeful assassin comic. The deaths are brutal with a touch of black wit. The character is not only an effective killer but shes talked about with an air of myth and legend. And the art feels gritty and kinetic. This is a highly recommended first issue. Read Full Review

    This one has a solid team working on it across the board with a great writer/artist team and one of the best colorists out there. The story plays to giving us a bit of history of what happened before while not being overly beholden to it, allowing it to move forward now in its own way. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Oct 11, 2021

    This is an old-fashioned bloody action series, full of crooks and assassins up to no good. There isn't an innocent good guy to be found only the violent retribution of Jennifer Blood. Vincenzo Federici and Dearbhla Kelly provide just the right amount of grit and noir amid the suburban confines of Bountiful and a Jennifer Blood comic wouldn't be complete with some shockingly grotesque violence. It's the unrepentant shoot'em up crime action thriller you've been waiting for.  Read Full Review

    The issue is just a lot of set up which isn't bad and tends to be just enough make the reader curious for more - even without having much knowledge about the original. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - C.V.R. The Bard Oct 11, 2021

    First issues are supposed to entice readers with a bang, at least that is to be expected on a line called "Dynamite"; but starting things off here with the slow burn effect was arguably the wrong choice for "Jennifer Blood " No.1. For the coming issues I want to see gratuitous levels of gore, I want witty & biting comedy, and overall I want Blood's sexuality to be played up to the level that Parillo is able to deliver on every cover he touches. If he can do that, then there will be hope for the new kid on the block yet. Read Full Review
