'It's just you and me. This is our time to be happy.' These are the words uttered by Christine Papin, an overworked live-in maid, as she is reunited with her younger sister Lea, who has also been hired by the wealthy Lancelin family. They make the estate's beds, scrub their floors, and spy on the domestic strife that routinely occurs within its walls. What starts as petty theft by the maids - and flashbacks to their tumultuous time in a convent - shortly turns into something more nefarious. Fuse the sisters' toxic upbringing, societal class exploitation, and increasingly unhinged abuse by Madame Lancelin and you have the catalyst for a ghastly crime that shocked and fascinated 1930s France and beyond. Maids has everything Katie Skelly fans - as well as fans of comics and true crime - are looking for: high bravura, high intrigue, and murder, all drawn in Skelly's highly stylised manner - combining the best of pop art, manga, and Euro comics that has become Skelly's trademark.
