Spinning out of the pages of its Jennifer Blood series, Dynamite Entertainment has announced the upcoming one-shot special Giulietta Romeo: Hitwoman from writer Fred Van Lente and artist Robert Carey, which is set to arrive in comic book shops this December.
Slamming her way out of the pages of the recent Jennifer Blood: Bloodlines series, Italian assassin Giulietta Romeo stars in La Tempesta, a noirish reimagining of the William Shakespeare play The Tempest. Giulietta is being extradited to Italy after the events of the Bountiful storyline when her plane is shot down over a remote island in the Atlantic, a former Nazi stronghold that is now the tiny kingdom of a man named Prospero, a former duke of the Naples mobs. His brother, the man who usurped his position, was being extradited on that same plane, and Giulietta finds herself in the middle of a gory blood feud and fighting for her life against Prospero’s monstrous servants, Caliban and Ariel.
“I think all readers will really love the Hot New Crime Writer of 2022, William “Bloody Billy” Shakespeare,” said Fred Van Lente. “I’m just the vessel that is bringing the island mob vengeance saga The Tempest to life.”
Jennifer Blood Presents: Giulietta Romeo: Hitwoman will go on sale in December.
