Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Garth Ennis’ gun-toting vigilante Jennifer Blood is set to return in a brand new comic book series from writer Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies, Wolverine) and artist Vincenzo Federici (Red Sonja).
“To bring back Jennifer Blood I really wanted to come up with a setting worthy of her,” said Van Lente. “The town of Bountiful is like the suburb at the end of Goodfellas, full of Ray Liottas who have cut a deal with the Feds. But Jennifer Blood doesn’t cut deals, she just brings spectacularly gory vengeance to criminals who thought they’d escaped justice. Vincenzo Federici brings such a raw, grindhouse energy to this, readers are going to have such a bloody good time.”
“This opportunity is incredible for many reasons,” adds Federici. “First of all Jennifer Blood is a Garth Ennis character! Then, I’m in love with Fred’s work after I had the opportunity to work with him previously. This new story is totally crazy! Stay tuned, you’ll see!”
Once upon a time, Jennifer Blood was just like any other suburban housewife – except that she took vengeance to the streets, cleaning up the criminals connected to her past. Now she’s dead, or so it seems. That nail in the coffin doesn’t seem so conclusive when suddenly people start dropping like flies in the quiet cul-de-sacs of the town of Bountiful, Utah. When Bountiful just so happens to be an undercover town completely full of mobsters, Blood’s possible return could start a whole war! Who will end up as the apex predator in this concentrated pond of criminality?
The neatly trimmed lawns and white picket fences of Bountiful are no less a facade than Jennifer Blood’s old secret identity. Behind each window is a grizzled, semi-retired mafioso, but when neighbors start dying, they turn to new character and legendary assassin Giulietta Romeo to hunt down the suspected killer. In this showdown of femme fatales, with wiseguys in the middle, will Jennifer Blood live to tell the tale?
Jennifer Blood #1 will go on sale in October 2021.
