Lark's Killer #1 (Devil's Due/1First Comics)
Bill Willingham (w) Mark Dos Santos (a)
A new series from the creator of Fables hit stores today in an oversized edition with multiple covers which seem to be becoming all the rage once again. For me however one is enough because it's the content that counts and this one does not disappoint.
Unusually this story begins a hundred years after Lark was around as a family of treasure hunters seek riches in a dungeon protected by "guardians". Using a magic box they find the hidden chamber and to their surprise.....
Lark is a street runaway from "our world" in modern LA who finds herself in the Kingdom of Vess being pursued by thugs intent on killing her just like "the others". hellhounds, mercenaries and magic this isn't going to be easy for poor old Lark.
But what is her destiny?
