‘Pimpkillah:’ Comic Book Review (LA Needs More Pimps! Apply Within!)

How many times has this happened to you? You're in the Sudan for years trying to help the natives, and then you get a message saying that your estranged sister is in the hospital, in LA, clinging to life? Must happen all the time . . . right? Part Kill Bill, part Sin City, and part Dolemite meets Death Wish, Pimpkillah is the story of Sloane Stone, a woman who can hold her own, while dealing with her own personal demons regarding her past, present, and future. Getting the word about her sister unlocks some memories that would have been better off forgotten, Sloane starts her own investigation, bringing back a past that should have stayed there.

What would you do, you, if you wanted to find a loved one's attacker, one who had beaten them within an inch of their life? Other than the cops (who probably care less about the attack of a hooker, than the score of the game)? Where do you start, who do you contact, what else can you, yes, you, do about it? I don't know about you, but I'd have no idea where to begin. Luckily, our friendly neighborhood Pimpkillah knows how to work the streets, get information from the local alley denizens, and how to handle herself, with or without a weapon.

They say be careful of what you wish for, you just may get it. And Sloane gets it in spades. When all at once you become the beneficiary of five or six life debts, becoming the Mama Bird so quickly to a roost of chicks, it becomes just one more thing. What would you do?

Written by Sarah Bitely and with artwork Alfonso Ruiz, Pimpkillah is a familiar story we've heard before, but there is a reason those stories continue to be told. Things happen. Retribution needs to happen. By hook or by crook, Sloane is going to get things done. Sarah Bitely has worked on this series for a bit and now is trying to raise money to make a Pimpkillah film.

Check it out. It's worth the investigation.

You can thank me later . . .
