At a pivotal moment in her life, former crack-whore Cabra Cini found a new addiction–voodoo–and from there she crafted a new vocation–developing her own bastardized version of the dark art to carry out hits!
Introduced in Visionary Comics’ Digital Visions, Cabra is back in H!M Comics’ IF-X: Halloween–in which a friend’s Halloween fancy dress party is meant to be a night off for Ms. Cini–but events prove to be as eventful and bizarre as any of her assignments!
Written by Sam Johnson (Geek-Girl, Gold Town, The Almighties) and illustrated by Dan Lauer (Myth, Slam Dunk Kings, Zombie Highway), Cabra’s lead feature in the comic reveals a new side to her. Johnson fills us in, “Anyone familiar with Cabra Cini knows she’s a badass; 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.”
