SYNOPSIS
When Scarlett, an overly ambitious cigarette girl — quick to break the rules and even quicker to pull the trigger — starts selling cigarettes outside of her district, tensions rise and the seeds of an all-out cigarette girl gang war are sown. When you're out on the street in the middle of the night wearing your little French Maid outfit, with the short skirt and the off-the-shoulder top, Jack Daniels isn't just your friend, it's your coat. And the 9mm in your tray isn't just your protection — it's the compass that points you the way home.
 
Overheard:
 
"Smoke and Guns... a terrific, adrenaline-rush ride which brought to mind the fun and nihilism of Gunsmith Cats and Sin City."
  ~Jim Lee
 
"With cigarettes, guns and girls, the only thing this hilarious romp is missing is the rock and roll. Baldock tells a story of Scarlett, a cigarette girl so tough she starts and finishes ganglike territory disputes the only way she knows how: with guns and explosions. Sly and sexy (thanks to terrific inky art from Brazil’s Fabio Moon), this is a quick read that elicits howls of over-the-top laughter. While not the deepest and most satisfying read ever, it’s cool enough that you’ll still want a smoke afterward even if it kills you. Grade: A"
  ~ Tom McLean, Variety
 
 
SG NOTES:  Part homage to the cult classic movie THE WARRIORS... this should be made into a movie!!! Almost 100% pure-adrenaline. This reminded me of a little of The Couriers 1 (Mar 2003-Brian Wood/Rob G) of the adrenaline rush I while reading.
 
Enjoy!
 
 
 
Props to DTs for the scan!
