Miss: Better Living Through Crime

Story by Philippe Thirault, Art by Marc Riou and Mark Vigouroux

Set during the "Roaring Twenties" in New York City, Miss tells the tale of two unlikely partners in crime; Nola, a poor white girl who has learned to survive by hook or by crook since being expelled from an orphanage; and Slim, a black pimp with an uncertain past, always trying to keep one foot out of the grave. When their paths cross and their options run out, they forge a partnership as hired killers. This is their story, about what it takes to survive when all you have is a gun, and each other.
