I absolutely adored the art in this. The faux ads are super fun too. This felt similar in tone to the movie Serial Mom, but even kitschier.

The review is for volume 1 & 2.
In short, I loved it. Being a working mom is tough when you‘re an assassin for hire.
The art was just beautiful, with the early sixties vibe perfectly captured. Vivid and wonderful. Loved the main character she was a total badass. Hope to see more of these.

I picked up this Betty-Draper-meets-Dexter graphic novel because it sounded fun. But it is serious murder-y business! The art & story do not pull any punches in that regard.
But even though she excels, things get serious with her bosses - they just don‘t respect the struggle of a mom balancing murdering & childcare. She stands up for herself, things get gory, and I can hardly wait to see where this story goes next!
Josie kicks ass 🔪

Loved the intro by Chelsea Cain, author of the Archie Sheridan series that follows a female serial killer. Josie Schuller is your picture perfect house wife and mother but she's also a ruthless assassin whose eyeliner is always on point. Loved the storyline and the artwork. Betty Draper meets Dexter! Gimme some! 🙌🖤🔪

Great artwork in this darkly comedic graphic novel series about a 1950s-60s housewife who is also a hired killer. I'm interested enough to look for the sequel, Lady Killer 2. Sadly, books 3-5 in the series don't seem to be available anywhere. #graphicnovels #darkcomedy

I loved this graphic novel. The story was awesome, the characters were amazing, and the art! Omg the art was so beautiful and mimicked the timeframe in which the story was told. It was just an all-round fun and perfect read. Cannot wait for volume 2.

Josie Schiller seems like the perfect housewife, but she is also a paid assassin. Unfortunately, her domestic duties have caused her to run afoul of her superiors.

This was a fun, retro read but I probably won't continue with the series.

#SizzlinSummerBooks #day16 #Graphic I read a lot of graphic novels as a kid,Tintin & Asterix&Obelisk were favourites,but I stopped reading them for a very long time(between 13 & 45).It was Litsy that encouraged me to pick them back up again & I'm so glad I did.These five in particular are brilliant.From top left-4girls in uni in Leeds,a villian & his sidekick,paper delivery girls in a time loop,girls at summer camp & finally a housewife assassin.

Day 19: Opposites. "Lady Killer" is about an American housewife in the 1960s who is an assassin. "The Clockwork Scarab" is about the niece of Sherlock Holmes and sister of Bram Stoker set in an alternate Steampunk London. One is a graphic novel and the other a prose novel, one is for adults the other is YA...umm, I'm sure there is more I'm not remembering. Hope this is opposite enough! #riotgrams

#JuneTunz #day11 #OneMoreTry I stopped reading graphic novels for about 30yrs until Litsy. Seeing all the great reviews of series like Saga, Lumberjanes & Rat Queens persuaded me to give them One More Try, & I'm so glad I did! Not only are those 3 brilliant, I've also found LadyKiller, Monstress, I Hate Fairyland & Paper Girls. All fantastic, beautifully drawn & great storylines. Only problem is it doesn't take me long to read them😏

Cinfhen I agree, the few GN I read took less than 15 -20 minutes ...didn't seem like good value for my $ 2y
NovelGirl82 I love that Litsy got me back in to graphic novels!! I read X-Men and WW in high school, but had not read others until Litsy. 2y
Gezemice I was started on graphic novels by a category in the Popsugar reading challenge two years ago. I thought they were all about superheroes. When I found out how many great graphic novels are out there that have nothing to do with men in capes, I was hooked! Loved Saga, too, and Maus, Persepolis, Fun Home, etc. are just great pieces of literature in graphic form. 2y

Josie is a mid century bad-ass. Elegantly macabre and murderously domestic, Lady Killer is a black comedy with great potential but not enough depth of character. The art makes it worth a read. #graphicnovel #darkhorsebooks

#feistyfeb #day28 #bestoffebruary this months stats are at about half of what I normally read in the same period of time, I've hit a massive reading slump lately. These are my four favourites for February, all very different but all entertaining. Ladykiller is a graphic novel about a 50s housewife who's also an assassin, The Obelisk Gate is high fantasy, The Wonder is about a "miracle" in 1880s Ireland & Wentwater Court is cozy crime.

ChasingOm Lady Killer is on my list of wants, but I have a huge backlog of unread graphic novels on my shelf that I need to read first. 😳 3y

#feistyfeb #day16 #palatecleanser I've started using graphic novels as a palate cleanser between novels. Since being reintroduced to them through you guys on Litsy, I've found some amazing series, like this four. They're easy to read, bright, interesting and great for breaking that book hangover you've gotten from the last intense story you read. Highly recommended.

Alicia Yes! I agree with graphic novels as a palate cleanser! I often do the same thing! 3y
Maike I slowly start to do the same thing, Saga was really good but I deeply love the Lumberjanes 😊 3y
Chessa I do the same with graphic novels! The best palate cleansers. I need to find Lady Killer, I love the other 3! 3y
