The Mysterious Strangers #1
Oni Press; June 2013; $3.99
Illustrated by the masterful Scott Kowalchuk and written by Chris Roberson, The Mysterious Strangers is a fun, kitschy comic.
The first issue briefly features the deadly Miss Styx and her four Beauty Queen Cultists. Few details are provided, but it's pretty clear that Miss Styx has a thing for inciting mass terror, hurting innocents and big, flashy displays of violence. On his blog, Mr. Kowalchuk mentioned that we will be seeing more of Miss Styx, so I am quite pleased.
Below is a treatment of Miss Styx and her Beauty Queen cultists in my system du jour, Fate Accelerated.
