PI Helen Keremos, Pulp Fiction's First Lesbian Detective, Gets a Comics Adaptation

Work for a Million is a new graphic novel by Amanda Deibert and Selena Goulding based on the 1978 detective novel of the same name by Eve Zaremba.

Starring the PI Helen Karemos, whose tough exterior is matched only by her softness for a pretty girl in trouble, this graphic novel takes the reader on a visual tour around gritty 1970s Toronto. Helen is on her way out of Toronto back to the peace and comfort of her home in Vancouver when she gets called upon for one last job, to serve as bodyguard for the recently-rich singer Sonia Deerfield. As the danger around them grows, so does their mutual attraction.
