Synopsis from Goodreads:
KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel) and EMMA RÍOS (Dr. Strange, Osborn) present the collected opening arc of their surprise-hit series that marries the magical realism of Sandman with the western brutality of Preacher. Death's daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her origin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage.

My Rating: ★★★ 

My Thoughts:
This is a tough one to review. Let me begin by saying the artwork was beautiful. The color choices, the wounds, the characters -- all beautiful.

As for the story-line I was a bit confused with it. This is a more western style graphic novel, different from the graphic novels I'm used to reading. The concept behind this story is that Death's daughter, Ginny, is looking to kill her mother's killer, Mason. While Ginny is after him her father sends Alice to retrieve his daughter and Sissy.

At first it was confusing why Death wanted Sissy, but finding out that she is to take his place as the new Death save humanity I can understand it.

This just wasn't a good read for me, but if you are into fantasy, Grimm reapers, death and Westerns this could be perfect for you.
