Rich Johnston for Bleeding Cool:

The new series, composed of three volumes, will be a horror with a gothic atmosphere set in Klondike and starring Hellaine, a “woman without mercy”, amidst the background of a gold rush. The story will address familiar themes from Andolfo, such as gender difference and the roles of women.

While it wasn’t quite what I was expecting when I first picked it up, Mirka’s previous series Unnatural has been really good so far. I was initially sold on her art alone but ended up finding a dark, twisted story along the way that’s kept me hooked.

That said, judging by the art she’s shared over the past few months on her social media and what we know about the story, Mercy might be even better.
