Cabra Cini went from being a crack-whore to a hitwoman, using voodoo to carry out her kills. She's developed her own version of the dark art to suit her needs and now she's profiting from it. I reviewed Cabra Cini's first appearance in Voodoo Trespass originally published in Digital Visions #4 from Visionary Comics and thought it was a great origin story. Unfortunately, we had to wait a bit for her to make her comeback.
That day has finally come. Cabra Cini is appearing in IF-X: Halloween from H!M Comics in a story entitled "Bad Voodoo." In this new adventure, she attends a friend's Halloween fancy dress party on her night off. The evening's events end up being more bizarre than any of her assignments. The story is written by creator Sam Johnson and illustrated by Dan Lauer.
“Anyone familiar with Cabra Cini knows she’s a badass;" says Johnson. "she used to be in the unfortunate position of being her now-ex pimp’s abused girlfriend, and having gotten out of that ‘hole’ and found her vocation in life, she’s a much stronger woman--to the point that she’s feared by any who know her--but beneath her badass exterior, she is still a human being.”
Johnson continues "No one has been able to get close to Cabra since she became the ‘Voodoo Lady’; though she does have physical ‘relations’ (as a former President might say) with her neighbor Jeff…Only, Jeff’s fallen for her. He’s been wanting to take things to the next level--for them to have a real relationship--he’s had this idea in his head for awhile, and after a couple of drinks at the party, Jeff’s going to make his move and try and break through the ‘wall’ Cabra’s put up. However--he may not like what he finds on the other side of it.”
"Bad Voodoo" is the lead feature of IF-X: Halloween. It also features a supernatural romance strip entitled "Brody and Lisa" by Kelci Crawford and "Recovery Unit," an offbeat vampire story from Patrick McEvyo & David Beyer, Jr. IF-X: Halloween is a 32 page, black and white comic available now for $2.99 at Sam Johnson's site.
Of course, if you haven't caught up with Cabra Cini yet, you can do so for free at the site as well.
