    A bloody marvelous fantasy that doles out new questions as soon as others are answered. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    The Blood Queen #2 is another engaging outing that bares some lackluster moments here and there, but continues to lay enough seeds to offer a promising future. To put it simply: this is a comic book that earns my recommendation. Read Full Review

    I reviewed Blood Queen #1, and I find that the 'jury is still out' on this new series.  I am hopeful that it will turn to be a good sword and sorcery story.  Most female heroes in this genre are warriors (excluding the wonderful and under-rated RAT QUEENS), and we could use a good story centered on a magic user/sorceress.  A minor spoiler is that this comic is (to some degree) modeled on the legends surrounding Elizabeth Bathory, so this could end up as an interesting re-visioning of an old story.  So far, the writer and artist have resisted the lure of going cliche on their source material.  In the era of Malificent, we could stand with more strong female anti-heroines, as opposed to just evil queen after evil queen who getting killed by the good guys.

    Fritz Casas captures the fantasy/medieval setting quite well. I additionally enjoyed his portrayal of the magical spell taking form in the air around Elizabeth as she weaved her incantation. Unfortunately, the depiction of her orgasm while bedding down Sir Ferenc looked more like a singer caught mid-note belting out a Michael Bolton ballad. Read Full Review

    I'm still not won over by this book but I am intrigued. This issue raises the stakes a bit and shows more of what Elizabeth is up to and the way of her reasoning, but it hasn't revealed the true why of it yet. And that's a plus because it makes her a character that you can get invested in but worried that there will be a flip or a trick along the way that can surprise you. There's a growing cast here that's being lightly fleshed out as we see more of their personalities and their own motivations being touched on. I'm enjoying the book but that's partially because it's not the norm and because I'm unsure of the lead character and how I'm supposed to feel about her. But I'm also waiting for more of the truth of the matter of the storyline to come out to see if I really want to invest in it for the long haul. I'm hopeful but still rather cautious here.
