Series from the 1980's written by Leonard Starr (Mary Perkins On Stage, Little Orphan Annie) and beautifully rendered by Stan Drake (The Heart of Juliet Jones, Blondie). This is a collection of graphic novels that only saw print in Europe. It was Starr’s desire to tap into the European market and produce “adult” works, which in this case means more adult oriented scenarios involving seedy locations and the occasional nudity. For these creators coming out of newspaper work it meant not having to worry about keeping it clean for the kids.

Starr presents exciting scenarios in a variety of far-flung locations, each presenting opportunities for action, adventure and intrigue. Green becomes a widow, gets a band of criminal protectors and turns to the grey area of life all in the first few pages, which is the only clunky part of this volume; it feels they needed to get the framework established as quickly as possible to get the story told. Everything else of the first story and the remaining four flow at a fast clip while building the tension and mystery.

Drake’s art is clean, detailed and expressive. Wonderful rendering throughout, bringing the figures and backgrounds to life. Facial expressions are greatly varied and convey so much. The lettering and sound effects show a deft hand and experience.

There is also a collected works 272 page issue "Kelly Green: The Complete Collection" that includes a fifth book never before published in English - The Comic-Con Heist.
