Raised from infancy by duplicitous clowns who entertain by day and menace by night, Pirouette dreams of washing the paint from her face and escaping to a better life far away from her cruel adoptive circus family... because when the spotlights dim and the crowd disperses, the clown princess' big-top dreams give way to a nightmarish world of monsters with painted smiles.
M.L. Miller spins Pirouette with authentic darkness and depth of character, while Carlos Granda's sweeping, exuberant line art evokes all the exotic charm and mysterious gloom of Pirouette's shadowy big top.

-Charles Soule (Star Wars, Daredevil)
"A comic unlike anything you've ever read before!"
