It's "Faster kill pussycat" by Paul Oakenfold and featuring the late Brittany Murphy. A shame that we lost actress Brittany Murphy this month. Not that she was the greatest actress that ever lived but, she gave good performances in many projects that I saw her in. And she was very talented. And a good singer too. I remember her playing a mentally challenged woman in a tv movie, who gets pregnant by her mentally challenged boyfriend, and the state tries to prevent them from raising their own child. She played her character in a very dignified way and not cliche of how many play the mentally challenged in movies. You could see she put thought into it.
Of course, her break out role was as Tai in "Clueless" being very sweet and genuine as the misfit of the group. And funny. In many ways she made the movie enjoyable. Well, she's gone but, we'll always have her movies and Tai "rolling with the homies."
And all done in one panel. As Hitchcock said of many plot devices--it's "the McGuffin"--we don't need a back story or a bunch of details explaining how or why---just get to the action.
