    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio Oct 9, 2019

    This book is beautiful. It's compelling and engaging and thought-provoking, and you can rarely divine what's going to happen next. The art is an impressive homage to the prevalent aesthetic of the time"art deco"and to the animation of Lotte Reiniger, as I mentioned in my review of issue #1. The movie set where Ginny and Frank perform their interrogation of Jack Kaufman is reminiscent of the large-scale production numbers which were so popular in the '20s and '30s"too early for Esther Williams, but possibly the Ziegfeld girls would swim around in the intricately decorated pool, with a full orchestra playing off to one side. There is also a great deal of extra content in issue #2, including a discussion between DeConnick and Ros about their creative process, which gives us an inside view to how the world of Pretty Deadly comes about.
