- Diamond Comics DistributorsKelly Sue DeConnick (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel) andEmma Rios (Dr. Strange, Osborn) present the collected opening arcof their surprise-hit series that marries the magical realism of Sandmanwith the western brutality of Preacher. Death's daughter rides the windon a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Herorigin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchinglysavage."It's a perfect match for the gorgeous, dizzying artwork in a sumptuouspalette-overlaid panels add intricate choreography to fight scenes, anddetailed, whirling splash pages beg for long-lingering looks. Couple that, alongwith a handful of Eisner nominations, with a multicultural cast oftough-as-nails women who all fight for their own honor, and this is a series towatch out for." - Booklist"It's ambitious and challenging (two qualities that are not often valued,but that probably should be), under a faade of violence and sacrifice.Rio's art is lush and detailed, and is more than capable of keeping up with thefar-reaching story." - PW
