With the February debut of the Jennifer Blood spinoff, The Ninjettes on the way in February, we thought we'd talk to the writer of both series, Al Ewing about working with Garth Ennis' gory-funny creations. Ewing is joined by artist Ewan Casallos and the series shows us the sexed-up lady mercs before some of them met their gruesome end in the pages of Jennifer Blood.
Here's the official synopsis:
Who are they? How did they come to be dead and/or decapitated? And what kind of brutal insanity is their passing about to unleash? Find out the grim connection between college student Kelly Hara and the ice-cold engine of death known as Varla as the origin of the Ninjettes is revealed! Don't miss this ultra-violent odyssey of sin, scandal, brutality and branding!
Read on for Ewing's Russ Meyer-infused inspiration for the characters, the trouble with PMCs, and his pitch for The Manjettes.
