Never, ever leave your fiancée at the altar, especially if she’s a trained assassin. In Shotgun Wedding, a new four-issue weekly mini-series event from Top Cow, writer William Harms and illustrator Edward Pun serve up a bitterly cold plate of revenge. Like the famous play The Mourning Bride by playwright William Congreve says, “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor Hell a fury like a woman scorned.”

When international hitman Mike Stone leaves his partner and fiancée, Chloe, on their wedding day, Chloe plans a devastating course of retribution, not only with Mike as the focus, but also his loved ones. Years later, Mike is set to marry again, this time to a woman who believes him to be a simple antiques dealer. When Chloe finally catches up to him, she’s ready to unleash a wrath the likes of which no one could ever prepare for – and she’s not working alone.

And not just any female serial killer, but a young one, at age 18, and the host of a dark talkback show on college radio called A Voice In The Dark.
