I stumbled upon Calamity Kate #1 completely by accident but I could not be happier! Loaded with sheer fun and an unabashed acceptance of asskickery, this comic does Dark Horse Comics proud.
By serving up a heroine in the form of Kate Strand, monster hunter extraordinaire, we are treated to an adventure that has both boundless energy and a wide field of play. For you see, she seeks to slay the original fiends and not just their progeny.
The setup is about as mundane as you could imagine, but the plot is just getting started. There is so much potential here. Look for this in comic shops near you; you will have a blast with this one!
Kate Strand reboots her destructive life and moves to LA to be the superhero she always wanted to be–Calamity Kate: gun-toting monster killer. With her latest career change, she faces new challenges, relationships, and competition; desperate to show she’s worth a damn in a world overrun by zombies, vampires, demons, goblins, and the ultimate monster bounty: the Seven Fabled Beasts of Yore.
From the Eisner and GLAAD Media Award-nominated writer of the breakout hit Kim & Kim and DC Comics Eternity Girl with Gerard Way, and artist on IDWs Ghostbusters and X-Files, comes this modern-day, adventure of heroes and monsters.
