The plot is simple: a sociopathic mother balances her quest for vengeance for the murder of her father and her family life. First thought as an intentional satirical "woman's view" of The Punisher, Garth Ennis decided to continue into this foray, though it is fairly obvious (by the loose plot and looser character development) that he hadn't an idea of where it would go.
Which is probably why he stopped writing it, but I digress.
The artwork--I would say--is nice. However, somewhere in the middle of the third issue, it goes from being a gritty and defined reflection of the story to...a flop. Anatomy fails and feels stocky, and facial expressions don't do as they're supposed to do, express! Ultimately, it makes me feel disconnected to the story and disinterested, which is a shame because the idea in itself is quite interesting.
The sudden change in art ruined this for me, but not enough to hold out hope that the next volume would be better.
