    In sum, Dynamite's Blood Queen appeals to readers engaged by fantasy as well as those just seeking an original story set in these familiar surroundings. It may not please those seeking all out action every issue as the comic favors character development and a slower pace, which suits me just fine when an intriguing protagonist like Elizabeth is front and center.

    Casas art definitely gives the fantasy theme with great work on the characters and especially the action scenes! I noticed the great use of darkness and shadows in this issue by Casas as well. The great color work by Kirsty Swan makes the covers and interior art even more vivid. All the covers available are just amazing in detail of the main character, Elizabeth! Also noted, the simplistic and appropriate lettering work by Marshall Dillon. Read Full Review

    With a good sixty percent of this issue focusing on events from the past as told by Winnifred, we get some good back story elements filled in that explains more of various motivations and some of the structure of the kingdoms themselves. It reinforces the old dynamic of the male wizards being good while the female witches were not to be trusted and that has some good moments explored here as Winnifred pushes back against it in the right way. The way she and Elizabeth interact is good as well, especially since it's solely about the mission and their larger goals and not about which guys they may be interested in or what kind of things Elizabeth has done to garner information, and that makes both women more interesting since it's about what they're doing and that's pretty much it. The series is continuing to grow and find its legs and this installment of adding more background definitely helps. Read Full Review

    For what had so far been an intriguing series, this issue makes a great misstep. Read Full Review
