Everette Hartsoe created RAZOR in 1991 as a way to help deal with depression over the death of his younger sister. Razor is an ultra-violent female vigilante and this subject material, certainly not for the faint hearted was deemed unsuitable for the publishers. So he decided to self-publish, the 1st issue exceeded all expectations, which enabled Everette to quit the day job and draw comics full time.
This book is a dark, gritty goth-noir work of fiction for adult readers, in the vein of Sin City and The Crow but alot more gruesome and violent. The series became an underground cult sensation in the 1990's until the final appearance in 1999 in a highly successful cross over with James O' Barr's The Crow.
Nicholle Mitchell has developed in the classic style of the victim turned avenger. Interestingly she was so badly traumatized by the things she does she becomes mentally unstable and positively suicidal in her actions.
