Coming Together To Solve Their Mother’s Murder
American comic book writer, editor, and letterer, Erica Schultz, best known for her work on Daredevil will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for her newest graphic miniseries, The Deadliest Bouquet on 11 May…
The Deadliest Bouquet has murder, secrets, and family drama wrapped up in 1998. Three estranged sisters trained by their Nazi-hunting mother must come together to help solve their mother’s murder…and try not to kill each other in the process. Rose, Poppy, and Violet were all trained in the art of espionage and assassination by their mother, Jasmine. When they were old enough to survive on their own, Poppy and Violet left home, with Rose, the oldest and “responsible one” remaining to help Jasmine run the flower shop. When Jasmine is found murdered in an apparent botched robbery, Poppy and Violet return home to New Jersey to confront old demons, dig up buried secrets, and solve their mother’s murder. With the sisterhood and family drama of Charmed and the aesthetic of Singles, it’s grunge meets pop meets enthusiasm for the new millennium.
Working with Schultz on The Deadliest Bouquet is interior artist Carola Borelli (Destiny: NY), colorist Gab Contreras (The Final Girls), cover artist Kevin Wada (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Scarlet Witch) and editor James Emmett (I Am Hexed).
“This is a story I’ve worked on for several years, so to see it come to fruition is long overdue. James helped me find the through-line for the story, and Carola and Gab’s art just bring it to life.”
The Kickstarter campaign will be asking for $20,000USD to fund The Deadliest Bouquet mini- series (five issues) and send it to print.
