    WRITTEN BY BRIAN AZARELLO; ART BY EDUARDO RISSO; PAINTED COVER BY DAVE JOHNSON. The writer-artist team behind the acclaimed JONNY DOUBLE returns with a gripping new ongoing series, featuring painted covers by artist Dave Johnson ("The Justice Society Returns!"). Everyone talks about "getting away with murder," but what would you do if you were given irrefutable proof of the identity of the one that "done you wrong," the opportunity to kill them and the means to get away with it, scot-free? When former gangbanger Dizzy Cordova meets the mysterious Agent Graves, she is given the opportunity of a lifetime in the form of an attache case containing the proof, the gun, and the carte blanche immunity to exact revenge for the drive-by shootings that killed her family. Now she faces the hardest decision of her life in the form of a question that has no easy answer: If you could get away with murder, and your victim truly deserved it, what would you do? MATURE READERS FC, 32 PG. Cover price $2.50.
