FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR— After its original announcement at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, Dark Horse Comics is happy to confirm the release of Lady Killer 2, the long-anticipated sequel to Joëlle Jones’s best-selling series Lady Killer.
The killer housewife is back! The Schuller family has moved to Cocoa Beach, Florida, where life carries on as usual. Josie continues to juggle Tupperware parties, her kids, and a few human heads. However, when someone from her past tails her on a hit, she may be in for more than she bargained for.
Lady Killer 2 features Jones resuming her role as writer, artist, and cover illustrator, with colors by Dark Horse veteran Michelle Madsen. And to celebrate Dark Horse Comics’ thirtieth anniversary, artists Matteo Scalera and Moreno Dinisio are producing a special variant cover for issue #1.
The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards 2016 recently nominated Lady Killer for Best Limited Series and Joëlle Jones for Best Penciller/Inker and Best Cover Artist.
Lady Killer 2 #1 (of 5) is in stores August 3, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop!
