Read the first issue of Larime Taylor's A VOICE IN THE DARK: GET YOUR GUN here! Issue two is in stores now.

 I never read Larime Taylor's serial killer soap opera A Voice in the Dark before today, but this cover to A Voice in the Dark: Get Your Gun #1 caught my eye, and the sales pitch said it was a good jumping on point for new readers. So I jumped on. Did I mention the whole first issue was posted online by the publisher, Top Cow? Yeah... free comics...

Slice of life serial killer comics. I approve this message.  Anyways, here's some pages from the second issue...

I don't really have a history of falling for the bad girls, but I love Larime Taylor's deadpan killing machine Zoey Aarons. Maybe I shouldn't be excited that Taylor pushed back on stereotypes by making his serial killer a black female, but I am. I so am! Zoey's awkward budding romance with cheerleader-smashing stalker Rio is a train wreck waiting to happen.
I feel guilty about how much I enjoyed these preview pages, so I need to get my hands on A Voice in the Dark Volume 1, which collects the previous seven issues of Zoey's story, so I can take it all in. But Taylor did a great job of setting the stage at the beginning. If you're already caught up, or you just wanna hit the ground running, A Voice in the Dark: Get Your Gun #2 is in stores now!
