The Names #1 (of 8)

I love revenge stories, and will gladly talk for days about my love for The Count of Monte Cristo. Revenge is a powerful, visceral motivation for characters that can build really interesting heroes and villains if done right. So, I'm pretty excited this week to pick up The Names #1. This is the first issue in a new eight issue series from Vertigo, and it's a bloody and brutal story of revenge (mature readers here, folks). The art, by Leandro Fernandez, is raw and emotional, and writer Peter Milligan knows just how to hook you into the mystery.

Katya Walker is determined to get to the bottom of her husband's mysterious suicide. Convinced that Kevin must not have jumped out of his Wall Street office voluntarily, Katya begins a campaign of violence against the creepy financial consortium that seems to have offed him. More The Driver than Kill Bill, Katya doesn't hesitate to act, and her first major confrontation is a vicious one. I can't wait to see how this revenge quest turns out.

Favorite Moment: "I'm just changing."
