The Queen of the Dead is back to life with an all-new series at Boundless!  This super-size #1 features the start of a new fully-painted series from artist Marc Borstel but also has a giant story-so-far to bring all readers up to speed on previous series and make this a perfect place for new readers to start.  Much has changed during Lady Death's absence from the Under Realm, most notably the near-extinction of the warrior class Demons. What devastating effects the demon annihilation will have on the Under Realm remains to be seen, but Hope cannot stand-by idly as a convoy of enslaved demons rolls through the night toward its captives' oblivion. As her plans of rising to power depend on the loyal foot-soldiers she abandoned, now she must rescue them at all cost.  The biggest Lady Death epic to date kicks off here!

Available with Regular and Sultry covers by Renato Camilo, Wraparound by Pow Rodrix, Auxiliary and Alternate History by Juan Jose Ryp,

    "Lady Death: Apocalypse" #1 fails at every level. The story is disconnected and messy, the art is disturbing, and any attempt at sexuality is met with gross violence. Lady Death is insulting to both women and a comics industry that is slowly but gradually moving past characters like Witchblade or Tarot with more progressive comics like "Ms. Marvel", "Batgirl", or "Sex Criminals". It's an anachronism, an anomaly lost in an era that no longer needs it, save for the neanderthals who can't get off without Double E sized breasts and women being murdered. Naturally, I'm going to write a monthly column about it for as long as I can. Read Full Review
