What’s to Love: We’ve all spent hours glued to episodes of shows like True Detective and House of Cards that explore deeply flawed and morally complex characters. In Butterfly, screenwriter Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco, Erased) brings that aesthetic to comics. Written by Amel and Marguerite Bennett (A-Force, Sleepy Hollow) and illustrated by Antonio Fuso (The Girl Who Played with Fire) and Stefano Simeone, Butterfly is a dark thriller that explores the nature of family in the uncompromising world of global espionage.
What It Is: Butterfly is one of Project Delta’s deep cover agents, no birth certificate, no social security number, a complete ghost. When her cover is blown and she’s set up for a murder she didn’t commit, she is unknowingly led to her father’s doorstep, a man she thought died 20 years ago. Trained to trust nothing and no one, Butterfly must decide whether to seek answers with the Project, or believe the man who betrayed her years ago. Collects the complete four-issue miniseries.
