    1. I'm still in love with Lady Killer.Volume 2 of this Dark Horse comic book--story and art by Joëlle Jones, colors by Michelle Madsen--launched in September 2016 and issues #1-5 are bound here, with a sketchbook of designs as a bonus. I still haven't succumbed to the vice of comic books and instead prefer one purchase to equal one story, but this smart volume does offer that, and sure is fun to flirt with. Cheeky without tipping into silliness, bloody without bordering on repellent, the story is [...]

    2. "There are seven rules for going into business for yourself: One: Trust your instincts. Two: Success is a series of small steps. Start with what you have and build what you need. Three: Always be prepared. Four: Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty once in a while. Five: Perseverance is the key. The price of success if hard work. Six: Have the right tools for the job. Seven: Learn from your mistakes."Throughout this hilariously macabre send up of the fifties or early sixties are these self-he [...]

    3. Josie Schuller is the ultimate domestic goddess: loving wife, doting mother – brutal assassin?! While she outwardly plays the idealised 1960s housewife, she’s secretly carrying out contract hits. If only disposal of the bodies wasn’t such a pain! Handily, a blast from her past reappears to offer his services. But Josie’s about to learn that being a small business manager has its pitfalls particularly when her sole employee doesn’t take being let go very well…Bravo, Joelle Jones – L [...]

    4. Mad Men if one of the wives was secretly an assassin. Josie and her family have moved to Florida for her husband's new job. She's trying to restart her hitman business which is currently a bit low-rent. She's also having a problem disposing of the bodies. Enter an old friend who may be more trouble than he's worth.The book looks absolutely gorgeous. Joelle Jones does such a fantastic job of marrying the typical 60's housewife with these bloody, graphic murder action sequences. The opening tupper [...]

    5. Josie is back!!My favorite assassin for hire who always looks flawless has relocated to Florida after the Seattle "incident" and the entire Schueller family is settling into their new routine. Gene has a new job with a very unpleasant boss, and Josie is now an independent contractor. Of course this means she now has to also handle some of the less pleasant sides of her work, like cleaning up, but she is determined to make it work! It's all rather swell until an old friend shows up with a busines [...]

    6. 4.5 starsI really love this series! The tone, the art, the writing! It's all so wonderful! I just really want AMC to grab the people that made Mad Men and turn it into a television show! I know it would be an instant hit!So, this picks up a little ways after the end of volume one. Josie and the family have moved to Florida for her husband's new job. Mother Schueller is still not Josie's biggest fan but she's keeping the secret. Josie's running things on her own now and it's a little rough at the [...]

    7. Josie is BACK and better than ever. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this graphic series - I just want them to come out more quickly!!

    8. Talk about bloody, gruesome and brutal. This second volume is a lot more graphic than its predecessor but the storyline and artwork are superb! The second volume is a strong sequel with some incredibly tense momentsd what an ending! Definitely on board for volume 3. Brilliant!

    9. Some of my favorite art and one of my favorite comic arcs. I've got to impatiently wait for the third volume now. If I had an aesthetic, it'd be Lady Killer: vintage, chic, and also without fear of getting dirty as hell to get the job done. Maybe less murderous, but you never know.

    10. This was such a good installment!! I absolutely loved it. I hope that she continues this story because it's an amazing concept with fun and interesting characters and a plot line that's to die for (haha did you see what I did there :D ). Anyway, if you haven't picked up this series yet I would definitely recommend it. I haven't seen a lot of people read this series and I think this is the year that I am going to push this series. Seriously! If you haven't read it it's time to pick it up.

    11. Lady Killer is my FAVORITE graphic novel series ever. Josie is MY GIRL!!!! Everyone should read this! It's a trip and a half!

    12. ORIGINALLY POSTED: bibliomantics/2017/11/19/Professional assassin/Tupperware saleswoman Josie is back and bloodier than ever. With her nuclear family now living in sunny, Cocoa Beach, Florida, Josie is struggling with the challenges of being a freelance murderer, all while trying to keep the literal skeletons in her closet hidden from her unsuspecting husband. What could go right?

    13. This volume was killer! It was so much more violent and bloody than the first volume. I really love our main character Josie. She’s even more complex and strong than I originally thought. She still manages to protect and care for her family while running her independent hitman business. And the direction of this comic is taking has me like 🙌🏻 SO good!! Just like the first volume, the art and coloring are beautiful. I can’t get enough. Let’s hope Vol 3 doesn’t keep me waiting so lon [...]

    14. Love love love!!! I have been waiting a long time for the 2nd volume and it didn't disappoint. This is all I want in a comic beautiful, dramatic and stylish artwork combined with an exciting story full of enigmatic characters. Josie is such a great character and something about her just jumps of the page. She feels real to me, dangerous and yet full of heartbreak and a longing to make her complicated assassin/housewife lifestyle work - and who can't relate to that!

    15. Hmmm. So Mother Schuller was a Nazi. I'll just leave that there. Gene has to be at least in his 30's so he had to have been born in Germany and lived there for a significant part of his childhood, yet there's no accent. And there is nothing in the text to support an affair with the boss's wife. Leaving with her when you're suspected of killing her husband isn't a good idea. I want to love this book. I really do. It is visually stunning with great attention to period detail. But the plot holes ar [...]

    16. I have waited for this for SO long, it seems. Usually when I wait for the next installment of something it doesn't really live up to my expectations because of my anticipation, but I thoroughly enjoyed volume 2 of Lady Killer. The plotline was cohesive and entertaining and humorous. I'd love for the artist to release an artbook of just her amazing (often blood-drenched) outfits.

    17. This GN is gruesome. The main character reminds me of American Psycho in the chic way that she always carries herself combined with the brutality with which she kills her victims. Feel fingers crossed there will be a third volume of this series.

    18. I really enjoy this series and the character. The art is gorgeous (the wallpaper in most scenes is obviously intricately crafted and really enhances my enjoyment), Josie is very likable and interesting as a character and in this volume, the story was particularly engaging.

    19. I've read this entire volume in a row to get prepared and also read the final issue, and it was a hell of a ride! I need more Lady Killer in my life!!

    20. Lady Killer 2 is the fan-fiction-esque sequel to a great first book which unconvincingly tells a sillier, more soap-operatic tale about a double-life living housewife.Let me be clear that by art standards the book is gorgeous. The colours are just as matte-blanche as before, and everything pops in a really erotic way. However, lost from the first book is the runway model sketch pad paneling which gave the book a beautiful vein of grace and female-fashion Americana. The visual storytelling of a c [...]

    21. Once More, With Maybe A Little Less FeelingI was a big fan of the first "Lady Killer" volume - it captured 60's suburban mom/family life and offered tense, violent and suspenseful action - and it played the two off against each other with wit and style.This volume, "Lady Killer 2", follows the same pattern, but doesn't add a lot to Josie Schuller's story, and seems to be a bit more labored. The first part of the book starts slowly, with a few hits-for-hire by Josie that feel forced, mechanical a [...]

    22. ARC Courtesy of Edelweiss+Oh Josie. I was so excited to see what was going to happen since the disastrous end of the first volume and the second did not disappoint. The illustrations and coloring appear to be very similar from the first, which was something that really drew me to the series (besides an awesome woman who just *happens* to be an assassin) because it was so bold and vivid. The story picks up in Florida where the Schuller family has relocated. Josie is hosting a Tupperware party to [...]

    23. I didn't like volume 1 all that much. I thought the art was stunning but the characters and plot were both weak and boring. But, I returned for vol. 2 because of the art. It brings together a fascinating blend of fifties Tupperware housewife and very violent blood and gore. Not to everyone's taste I'm sure but I find it fantastic. And this volume did not disappoint with respect to the art. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed the plot also and finally found the characters developing [...]

    24. As always the art was amazing, but I was disappointed by the lack of characterization. Josie's family just sort of exists? Without giving us much insight into why she values them. We hear a lot about her husband's troubles, but as there isn't much tenderness between them he's still sort of just a generic man. His mother, at least, gets an interesting back story, and there's a shout out to a real serial killer who was operating in France during WWII that true crime fans will find entertaining.

    25. In my review for the last volume I mentioned that the colors weren't as vibrant as I wanted. I guess they heard me because they pop here. The story was strong and I really liked the ending. I'm interested to see where it goes, but I do feel like there was a page missing, so to speak. What happened between (view spoiler)[Gene shooting Irving and the disposal guys coming? What did Josie tell him? Is that why he leaves? (hide spoiler)] Looking forward to vol 3. Hopefully, it won't take 2 years this [...]

    26. I really like this serie my only issue comes with the fact that it is predictable, I would have enjoyed little bit more mystery ,twist and turns , i was expecting more from a housewife Hitman in 60's , it is well written beautifully drawn and the coloring is great. I know origin story are a bit overdone ,but I would loved to know what made her become a Hitman appart from a brief scene with her mother , just to get deeper in Josie's character and motivations.

    27. Sexy, gory, darkly humorous, an absolute romp and a half! Sit down with a glass of wine or a classic cocktail and follow our 1950s housewife Josie as she murders for hire. Blood and Tupperware and pearls are splattered all over Jones’ beautiful art; the perfect series for those who want a little glamor with their violence.
