It's 2024, and supervillain Bomb Queen wants to stop Donald Trump from becoming president for life. Her plan: campaign against Trump, steal his voter base, and lay bare America's dark underbelly in the process.

BOMB QUEEN returns after eight years in a brand-new series featuring all the explosive satire and twisted fun her fans have come to expect-in other words, it's pretty much guaranteed to offend everyone!

    Bomb Queen's Trump-like behavior in past events makes her an interesting example of villainy to bounce off of. The idea of making a Trump-like villain run against the actual Trump is a fascinating one and merits discussion. Give it a read and if it's not your thing, that's okay. If you end up liking it, then you have a lot more satire to look forward to, along with the added sting of pure unpolitical correctness. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 26, 2020

    Theres a tremendous amount of potential in a politically-charged Bomb Queen set four years into a dark future. The surreally graceful and sexy fascistic villainy of Bomb Queen could be incredibly appealing when contrasted with the fumblingly graceless greed of a bloated wannabe fascist egotist who is all too real on this side of the comic page. Hopefully, Robinson can manage a more slickly appealing dynamic for the rest of the series now that the backstory has been dealt with.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Aug 3, 2020

    If at this point you think that Bomb Queen #1s style of crass satirical comedy is for you then you might want to check it out. If what I have described sounds like it falls somewhere between too much, well... Id say go with that. No media is for everyone, and Bomb Queen #1 definitely isnt for everyone. Read Full Review
