Kelly Sue DeConnick (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel) and
Emma Rios (Dr. Strange, Osborn) present the collected opening arc of their surprise-hit series that marries the magical realism of Sandman
with the western brutality of Preacher. Death's daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her origin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage.

"It's a perfect match for the gorgeous, dizzying artwork in a sumptuous palette-overlaid panels add intricate choreography to fight scenes, and detailed, whirling splash pages beg for long-lingering looks. Couple that, along with a handful of Eisner nominations, with a multicultural cast of tough-as-nails women who all fight for their own honor, and this is a series to watch out for." - Booklist

"It's ambitious and challenging (two qualities that are not often valued,
but that probably should be), under a façade of violence and sacrifice.
Rio's art is lush and detailed, and is more than capable of keeping up with the far-reaching story." - PW

What the sweet hell was that? I imagine this is the literary form of LCD. In all honesty, I had no idea what was going on, who was who, and why things were happening. I have enjoyed DeConnick's work in the past but I couldn't wrap my head around this. Rios artwork was good but I have no idea what she was supposed to be drawing. Overall, a confusing acid trip.
