'NURSE NURSE 4' by Katie Skelly (pt. 2/3)

Katie Skelly lives in New York City.  She works full time and is working on an art history M.A. so she does comics whenever she has spare time. Sparkplug distributes the Nurse Nurse series, and she hopes to have the fifth issue out very soon. Her website is calicocomics.com.  Arthur is pleased to present issue 4 of Nurse Nurse, which we’ll serialize in 3 parts.  Read part 1 here and part 3 here.

Previously:  In issues 1-3, interplanetary nurse Gemma is sent to space to help heal atmosphere-poisoned colonists on Venus. She’s attacked by a butterfly farmer who experiments in aphrodisiacs and steals a top secret book, which gets her demoted to a mission on Mars. On the way to Mars, two space pirates, Bandit and Pandaface, hijack her ship and loot it for parts. Gemma discovers a way to escape the pirates but it lands her on a familiar adversary’s ship.
