Pretty Deadly, Volume 1

Author:  Kelly Sue Deconnick
Illustrator: Emma Rios & Jordie Bellaire
Publisher:  Image Comics
Year:  240
Pages: 120

Goodreads Summary:
KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel) and EMMA RÍOS (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.

I didn't know what to expect going into Pretty Deadly. I just knew that a lot of people whose book recommendations I respect had recommended the series and raved about it. I can definitely see where they are coming from. It's very  unique. The artwork is very unique and "artsy." It features some very strong women and has a unique storyline. I am definitely enchanted enough to keep following the story and see what happens.
