She's like the female Punisher. It was awesome!

I finally got my hands on volume one of 'Painkiller Jane' but did it get my heart racing or leave me numb?

Well the story was exciting and fast paced but the ending just felt a little bit of a let down.

However, the art was perfect for the title. Bullets, guts and gore. It felt like a mix between 'The Punisher' and 'Kick-Ass'.

I rated it 3.5 over at my site but alas, this site doesn't do half stars.
