Death has always been a menacing character in literature. Now acclaimed writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain, Marvel, Ghost, Osborn) and artist Emma Rios (The Amazing Spiderman,Osborn), are bringing a new face to the role. Her name is Ginny and she is Death's daughter.
The creator owned series will have Ginny as its central focal point as she travels across the West on her stead made of smoke. Her description is one of a mysterious, elusive character placed in a world that will be entirely created by Rios and DeConnick.
The chances of seeing death dealt by a female character is intriguing, this is a reversal of the usual maternal aspect of women and it will be interesting to see where she will be taken over the course of this series.
The first issue of an ongoing series, PRETTY DEADLY #1 will be in stores on October 23.
“The book is absorbing us while breathing on its own,” said Ríos. “Sometimes I feel we are hidden behind a rock, gasping, watching the characters do their things.”
“This book has defied my directives at every turn, but made it up to me in a series of goosebump moments where things came together as if by magic,” said DeConnick.
