**** (out of five)

Viper is the deadliest mob hitter around.
If you cross Jackie Solotso’s gang, chances are you’re going to get a visit from this lovely-yet-lethal young woman.
Everything seems normal when she gets the call to take out a would-be informant in Northford, Conn., but something about the town seems eerily familiar to the killer, whose past is shrouded in mystery.
When one of the cops guarding her target approaches her, mistaking her for his fiancée, Viper is rattled. Does he know her? Has she been here before?
The cop calls his lover and tells her of seeing a woman that looks just like her, only to find out her sister, Sara, was kidnapped in Northford as a child.
Could she be…?
When the hit goes down the target is history, but his failed protectors won’t let it go. After a brief battle the cop finds himself staring down the barrel of a gun and he tries one last desperate act: He calls her Sara — and she holds her fire.
Killing Girl is a fantastic comic book experience. The story by Glen Brunswick (The Gray Area) is edgy and electric and the art by Frank Espinosa (Rocketo) is breathtaking. You won’t be able to wait for the next issue.
