I first found out from @iFanboy, (and indulged in some jubilant air-punching as I did so) that the winner of Top Cow Pilot Season 2011 was The Beauty.

Modern society is obsessed with outward beauty. What if there was a way to guarantee you could become more and more beautiful every day? What if it was contagious? In the world of The Beauty, physical perfection is attainable and while the mass majority of the population has taken advantage of it, Detectives Foster and Vaughn will soon discover it comes with a terrible price.
Writer/artist JEREMY HAUN (Detective Comics, Artifacts) and co-writer JASON A. HURLEY offer up a startling reflection on the cost of looking good in this procedural science fiction tale.

I read it on my tab, as well as highly-rated, but not that good, actually Theory of Everything (but I should probably read that one again). The Beauty was a good first issue that took a decent premise and made an interesting story around it.

She doesn't get better after that. She dies.

For a book where the premise is STD's there's mercifully no judging of any sort about sexual behaviour.

I really want to see where this story goes next, especially seeing how well one of the leads deals with the last page reveal. He goes home at the end of the day, has sex with his wife and wakes up the next morning looking ten years younger. Hopefully, it will come out at some point soonish and not still be MIA three years later

The Beauty was actually one of the pilot season books that I liked. That and Theory of Everything.
