See if you can spot the guest spot for Miller's iconic creation in the frame below:

Ed Brubaker, the writer who killed Captain America, has released a new clip from his web-only series “Angel of Death." The new clip (which debuted on comics site ComicVine) is titled "Cleaning Up," and features main character Eve (played by Zoe Bell of “Death Proof”) advising viewers how best to clean up a dead body.
The 8-10 episode series follows Bell as a Mafia-hired assassin who suffers from a devastating injury and subsequently decides to kill everyone who ever hired her to murder for money. Creator Brubaker spoke with Splash Page about "Angel of Death" back in August, and if you've read his pulp-noir inspired series “Criminal” and “Incognito,” you know Brubaker is no stranger to hard-boiled stories.
