Who's the gun-toting woman on my wall?

Identify This Picture. Help! I just moved into my new place. There's a big graphic-novel style cutout on the wall (pic included). Who is she?

Yes, my new apartment is cool. Yes, things like this pic was one of the reasons I liked it.

That's a picture of my front room wall. It's about 8' tall, and a 3D cutout.

Who is it? I assume it's from a graphic novel, but I have no idea! The text reads something about the kick of a snub-nosed revolver, and how cops use 9mm automatics.
The last bit is 'The pistol is like part of my hand. With it, I'm a super-hero'.

There's this in the lobby:
But I know that guy :)

Elektra from Marvel Comics.

that should've been a link

I agree with jeribus, the red clothes make it look more like Elektra to me.

It's Sara Pezzini, from Witchblade.

Definitely Sara Pezzini from Witchblade. It's an early issue before she comes into contact with the Witchblade artifact. The non-standard "uniform" is an undercover hooker outfit (Pezzini is a homicide detective).

I guess if I would have read grex's link, I would have found out that he was right. The quote makes it appear to be Sara Pezzini.

Well, if it's Marvel, maybe it's Electra, however the costume looks wrong to me, and your picture appears to have round sunglasses on as well.

BUT, dumping the pistol quote into google comes up with this page, so I'd bet it's Witchblade

I don't think it's Witchblade.

Elektra seems more likely, but still not quite right.

Ooops. I take it back.

Thanks for the speedy replies!
I'm gonna go with grex, and Witchblade. The quote fits perfectly.

I thought Elektra first as well -- but does she use guns? I thought she only used asian-inspired bladesand such.
