Franklin: Doesn't it ever get to you? You know, killing people?Eve: No.
—Episode 1, "Edge"
Angel of Death is a new web series created by Ed Brubaker (the author of Criminal) about a ruthless assassin named Eve (Zoe Bell). Eve has no qualms about her work, until she receives an injury to the head...specifically a knife wound.
You may also be looking for The Grim Reaper.
This series features examples of:
- Gun Struggle
- Hard Head: Quite averted, as Eve is stabbed in the freakin' head.
- Hitman with a Heart
- Infant Immortality: Massively averted in the first episode (Eve kills her target's daughter -- she probably didn't mean to, since she was stabbed in the head at the time).
- In Case You Forgot Who Wrote It: Ed Brubaker's Angel of Death.
- In Medias Res: The whole thing begins at the ending (probably).
- Ms. Fanservice: Eve looks to be this with a lowcut blouse, until she gets stabbed in the head and then it probably turns into Fan Disservice.
- Professional Killer: Eve.
- Role Association: The series plans to have Lucy Lawless, Ted Raimi, and Zoe Bell (who was Lawless's stunt double), as well as Doug Jones.
- Shower of Angst: And thank you very much.
