This volume collects the first 6 issues of the now cancelled series. Volume 2 comes out in February of 2013 and collects issues 7-12 and the 0 issue, the rest of the series.

Priscilla Kitaen leads a very interesting life. Some call her Voodoo for some of her more exotic qualities. But she does work some dark magic posing as a gorgeous woman but that is only half her lineage. The other half is of the alien conquers, the Daemonites. They want to expand their empire with earth in their sights. Their prime method of info gathering is making human-Daemonite hybrids, with shape shifting and mind reading abilities. That is Voodoo. A few government agencies are on to her, in particular, Agent Fallon, who holds a strong grudge against this being. As Voodoo is chased she starts to wonder what and who she really is.

This series is just a lot of fun. It comes from the same line as Grifter Vol. 1: Most Wanted (The New 52), not only as being a Wildstrom character being integrated into the main DCU but a sci-fi espionage thriller pumped full of action. Voodoo is more fun for the story unfolding but the title character and Agent Fallon are not complete bores. Both have a shadowy history that leaves the audience wanting to know more and have a soldier like mentality of wanting to get their respective jobs done, which makes them interesting. The opening issue/chapter is incredible. A real nicely paced thrill ride.

The first four issues are written by Ron Marz. The next (and the rest of the series) are done by Josh Williamson. The transition in tone is seamless. One could barely tell if not looking at the credits in the beginning.

Priscilla Kitaen aka Voodoo is the hottest stripper in New Orleans but the Feds are tailing her - because she's actually a shape-shifting alien trying to steal secrets about the Justice League to pave the way for her race's invasion of Earth!

Maybe it's because I wasn't expecting anything from this, but Voodoo wasn't bad. Being a character from the early `90s series "WildCATS", she's not exactly the most famous or the most obvious choice for their own series but Ron Marz does a decent job of crafting an intriguing cat-and-mouse story between Voodoo and Fallon, an agent of the Black Razors, as Voodoo tries to complete her alien espionage mission. The first issue might put female readers off for being so gratuitous in the T&A department - Voodoo does one striptease after the next - but the action quickly moves away from the strip club in New Orleans to less exploitative surroundings.

Green Lantern Kyle Rayner pops in for one issue which was fun if only for the imaginative constructs Marz gave Rayner for his ring (green cartoony woodland sprites!), and it was interesting to learn about Voodoo's character - yeah, character work in a New 52 book! The Daemonites appear in this book, the alien villains from "Grifter" and "Stormwatch", and though they look cool and menacing, they continue to be easily defeated as they were in those other books making them unsatisfactory villains.

Also, Voodoo's story was confusing. It seems peculiar to have a character working for an alien race seemingly intent on the enslavement of humanity as the hero of the book; an alien Mata Hari working for the enemy - and we're supposed to be on her side? It doesn't seem that straightforward but I'm not sure what she's really about either.
