The news has been confirmed! Joelle Jones's Lady Killer, is coming back for another round of comics. Jones will continue writing and illustrating while Michelle Madsen will do colors, and the title will simply be Lady Killer 2.

Here's what it's all about…
"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."
That just goes to show you how brilliant this series actually is. The 1950s art style brings a classic feel to the comic, but the content is seriously thrilling. You can feel the crazy when you look into main character Josie's eyes, and watching her lead a double life doesn't get old. I look forward to seeing what Jones has in store for her this time around. Because the title has just been nominated for two Eisner's, it's sure to get more attention…and there will be a special variant cover as part of Dark Horse Presents.
Designed by Matteo Scalera and Moreno Dinisio, I'll be hunting for that one…Lady Killer 2 #1 (of 5) will hit shelves on August 3, 2016.
