Rating: 5/5 stars
Meet Josie Schuller: full-time homemaker, part-time assassin. Life is all about balance for Josie and she’s slowly starting to lose control. Between a nosey mother-in-law and a boss who doesn’t think she can get the job done, Josie must decide how to mix her career and personal life.
Josie reminds readers of a Mad Men era housewife, as she throws the perfect luau themed party for her husband’s birthday, but her mother-in-law isn’t falling for that act. The elder Schuller has seen Josie sneaking around with a man at odd times of the day and watched his car circle the house. Josie works to convince her family and friends that she’s actively “volunteering”, but in reality she’s a ruthless killer for hire.
When Josie fails to make time in her personal life to accommodate meeting times for her profession, her boss decides she’s no longer a fit for the company and puts a hit out on her. How will Josie escape this one? How will she make sure her family doesn’t find out her secrets?
Jones and Rich weave a brilliant, satirical story of a housewife gone rouge. You’re instantly cheering for Josie and her strong-willed character. The story is everything you want from a graphic novel.
