Is she part robot? The first issue doesn’t explain how she got her body or why. We do see her kick a lot of ass!
We are mostly introduced to how she navigates her world and we see her go up against criminals who are bigger and badder than she is. The story is gritty with only a dash of Emma’s dry sense of humor in the dialogue. I love that Emma is a little scary, perhaps not quite lovable but someone you want to respect… from afar. You just hope you don’t get on her bad side.
The artwork of the book is fantastic and the action sequences are strong. The character designs are a lot of fun— Emma is pretty bad ass. And interesting. And cool. I want to know how she got her metal body, dangit! TELL ME HER STORY!
Comic book readers who are looking for a new, different book to read about a woman who has a shady moral code and shiny weapons… STAINED is for you.
STAINED is written by David Baron and illustrated by Yusuf Idris. It will be available on May 3, 2017 from 451 Entertainment. Make sure to let your local comic book stores to order copies!
My head is spinning, you guys.
I wanted to do a New Year wrap up of which comic book movies were my favorite in 2016, but it’s hard to even keep track of all of them. Isn’t it strange to think that not that long ago, we geeks were constantly thirsty for superhero movies? Now, we’re pretty much drowning in them. Not that I’m complaining.
Thank you for showing us that tough princesses can exist and kick ass in space.
Thank you for being yourself, always, and for being unapologetic.
Thank you for showing us how to be women and how to be proud.
You will always be royalty to us.
