Last summer, we brought you the first look at "Angel of Death," the new, live-action online series created by "Sleeper" and "Captain America" writer Ed Brubaker. Starring Zoe Bell and featuring a comics-friendly cast that includes Doug Jones ("Hellboy II"), Lucy Lawless ("Xena," "Battlestar Galactica") and Ted Raimi ("Spider-Man"), "Angel of Death" follows a mafia assassin (Bell) who suffers a near-fatal injury and decides to execute everyone who's contracted her to kill in the past.
The first episode of the series debuted today on Crackle.com, and MTV has a set of exclusive photos from the set of "Angel of Death" -- including this image of Brubaker and Bell laughing off the knife-to-the-head injury that sets the main character on her road to revenge.

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.

Longtime stunts stalwart Zoe Bell came into her own as an actress in "Death Proof," Quentin Tarantino's half of 2007's retro-tastic "Grindhouse" double-feature, but her geek cred looks to keep piling up with a starring role in "Angel of Death," the upcoming, live-action online series created by comics scribe Ed Brubaker ("Sleeper").
The first trailer for the series debuted this week on Sony Pictures' online channel Crackle.com, and along with Bell, it features many faces familiar to genre fans -- including Doug Jones ("Hellboy I/II"), Lucy Lawless ("Xena") and Ted Raimi ("Spider-Man").
In the series, which will be composed of 8-10 episodes released over 10 weeks, Bell plays a mafia assassin who suffers a catastrophic head wound and subsequently decides to kill the people who once ordered her to kill others. We first spoke to Brubaker back in August about the series, and he shared some details about what viewers can expect when the first episode of "Angel of Death" debuts in 2009.
What do you think of "Angel of Death"? Does Brubaker have a hit in the making? Let us know in the comment section!
A guy walks into the emergency room with a knife in his head – right behind his eye – and “Angel of Death” was born. Writer/creator Ed Brubaker was watching a PBS video of the real-life ER scene on YouTube, saw the doctors cut a piece of the man’s skull out to remove the knife, and immediately called up his wife’s cousin -- a surgeon -- to ask “Would most doctors know what to do in this situation?”
“Almost no one has ever dealt with this,” Brubaker said. “But you don’t leave a knife in somebody. It’s not brain surgery. Well, it is, but basically you put the person down and keep them stable and very slowly and hopefully smoothly pull it out. A handful of cases will be fine, they’ll be completely normal or just have the occasional seizure. But others bleed to death immediately. Pulling the knife out can kill them.” Read More...
