**** (out of five)

Beautiful naked women: good. Beautiful naked, homicidal women: bad.
The Luna Brothers — Jonathan and Joshua — are back with the hot new follow-up to their great debut, Ultra: Seven Days, and this time they’ve upped the ante.
Sure there’s the same clean art, solid storytelling, great characters and, well, yeah, beautiful women, but make no mistake, this book is a thriller.
When Ethan Daniels rescues a wounded, naked woman from the side of the road one night after a particularly rough day in Pennystown (pop. 65), he figures his luck has changed. But after one night of exactly what Ethan hoped would happen with a naked girl, happening, things quickly take a turn for the worse. The mysterious (and still naked) girl somehow manages to duplicate herself. And again. And again. And again.
Ethan’s shock over this turn of events gets turned up 10 notches when “the girls” burst out of his house and go feral on any woman they see.
Mixing humour, horror and humanity in a great package, Girls is a bizarrely good read.
