This is the tale of Peach Tree Block's crime kingpin Ma-Ma, and how she reached that exulted position. It turns out the ex-prostitute only very recently arrived there, having taken charge of her dismal existence and survived a bloody reckoning with her ertswhile pimp Lester Grimes.
It was Grimes who gave Ma-Ma her striking facial scar; we also learn that that maternal-sounding moniker is short for Madelaine Madrigal. There's some stuff about the creation of the Slo-Mo drug too: an "LSD derivative", the effects of which are "like seeing God through the cracks of creation".
Art-wise, we're very much in the world of the film: that Lawmaster bike has slimmer tyres than we're used to. Language-wise too, the tone is a bit more Clint than 2000AD. Still, if you wondered how Lena Headey's character got where she was, here is your answer.
