Curtain Opens... 

Nikki St Clair was the sweetest gal in the city until she is cast in a horror show musical as the Tap Dance Killer. There's a supernatural occurrence, and she can't shake the role. Soon she's joined by her supporting cast of Vaude-Villains (Punchline, Sir Terror, Fletcher, Hurricane Lizzy, and Uzi Clown) embarking on an all-out mob war like nothing you've EVER seen! Superheroes? Supervillains? The lines are blurred in this action-packed series!

The Tap Dance Killer Volume 1 Collection (over 150 pages) contains the first five issues of the acclaimed new series, and is loaded with exclusive extras like concept art, guest pinups, essays, and more! 

Written by Ted Sikora with art by Donny Hadiwidjaja (aka Nikolaus Harrison), and inks by Hadiwidjaja and Chis Arieswendha
