Let’s go underwater again, this time dipping below for Forgotten Queen #1, from Valiant.

It’s about a female baddie. This warmonger, who can convince men to fight one another, is already a foe of the super-team Unity.

Her origins come around 1200 AD, the time of Genghis Khan. As we alternate scenes between a present-day diving expedition, and Genghis Khan’s desert camp, we see a pattern emerging: the witch is showing her powers of control!

The story is setting the stage for future issues; Writer Tina Howard and artists Amilcar Pinna combine their creative forces to bring us this tale of two environments; all we know for sure is that the Forgotten Queen (what IS her name again??) is really aggressive, savvy and a true War Monger.

Valiant, The Forgotten Queen, $3.99 for 21 pages of content. Not rated

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
