Meet Bloody Nasreen, a fictional character made by Karachi, Pakistan based Shahan Zaidi.  Zaidi grew up on a diet of Vertigo and Constantine comics and says he is inspired by female-focused movies such as Shekar Kapur’s Bandit Queen (1995) and Kill Bill (2003), starring Uma Thurman.

The National describes this character as, Blazing eyes, flying hair, looks that could kill. The main character of Shahan Zaidi’s English-­language graphic novel Bloody Nasreen is 27, smokes cigarettes and kills without pity. Pakistan’s first unveiled heroine wields a gun in her right hand and a sword in her left, but her attire – she wears a shalwar kameez and sneakers – is not the image you’d expect of a ruthless crimefighter.
