Jennifer Blood #24
Wow! This issue still rocks despite the fact that Jennifer Blood doesn’t make an appearance. It is all about her father, one of six brothers who eventually become mobsters. Writer Al Ewing and artist Kewber Baal do an excellent job of portraying how life was for her dad in 1965.  Rated mature, this issue is the latest of a series that doesn’t disappoint.

This one is a bridge issue and is quite gruesome. Jennifer Blood tells her tale while she is in solitary confinement in prison. She recounts everything she has done, mostly about the five uncles whom she has killed as revenge for her father’s death.

The cover says “Suggested for Mature Readers” and one can see why. There is plenty of brutal carnage. That said, this comic book is great. Writer Al Ewing and artist Kewber Baal have created an engaging, good-looking comic book that is engaging and suspenseful.
