''Marilith'' is a work by Krazy Krow, the author of ''{{Webcomic/Krakow}}'' and ''{{Webcomic/Spinnerette}}''. It is split into two series, which are quite different in art style and tone.

''Krakow 2.0'' is full of CrossesTheLineTwice BlackHumor. Marilith Millions is an assassin who plans to get rich by kidnapping a wealthy heiress. But what seems like ASimplePlan soon goes off the rails, and Marilith finds herself the target of not just the police, but also bounty hunters and her own boss.

''Marilith'' is a much [[CerebusSyndrome darker and more dramatic]] continuation of the story. Marilith has grown tired of the trade and is looking to retire to Argentina. However, her retirement plans face an obstacle: an old nemesis who will stop at nothing to kill her before she has the chance to slip away.
