Punk Mambo is a hard-living voodoo priestess who grew up in London, then relocated to the Bayou. Now, she's a mystical mercenary for hire.
In her first-ever solo series, Punk Mambo investigates a series of abductions in the New Orleans Gutter Punk scene, stumbling upon a deadlier mystery that takes her to the haunted shores of Haiti.
From writer Cullen Bunn (Venom) and artist Adam Gorham (X-Force) comes this hilariously horrifying tale.
New characters, new places, same Punk attitude!
Great for fans of Dead at 17 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    To borrow from the character's name, like any great punk song the comic grabs you by the scruff of your neck and screams at you. It takes you on a journey through viscous cannibals, spirits and possession within the first third of the comic. It's fast, it's dirty and it's fucking awesome. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 5, 2019

    If a punk voodoo priestess from London isn't enough to attract attention, then maybe we're all getting too jaded. Punk Mambo is definitely something that is not seen every day, and fortunately this solo debut packs enough quips into a solid story that is worth checking out and coming back for. Read Full Review

    This clearly doesn't please Laveau, who seems to abandon Mambo in her time of need to leave her to her own devices; something which she might soon regret. I've got to say it again, Cullen Bunn is putting out some really really great content and the art coupled with his story in this limited 4 out of 5 star issue is enough to really make people who might not be super familiar with Punk Mambo truly fall in love with her.

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Mar 21, 2019

    It's telling that Victoria exacts no cash for services rendered this issue. Instead, she settles for being owed a future favor. Her earlier situation, one requiring an outside assist to prevail, has left an impression. PM's choice belies the serious confrontations she anticipates. The loner Lizard Queen may not want anyone's help, but she may not survive without it. Read Full Review
