GFT White Queen 2_Variant CoverIt’s a fascinating time for this shared universe. With all the chaos currently going on, both in the present and near future, followers have been graced with months of worthwhile entertainment that’s bound to keep us all rather excited. And this creative team continues their three part mini-series by presenting a second outing that should garner attention and praise.

Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco work with seasoned script writer Troy Brownfield to continue to develop this corner of the Age of Darkness.Thanks to a body of text that ebbs and flows with personality, our heroine steps up to the plate as only a strong Liddle can. In the midst of the landscape created by Realm War, Wonderland‘s current ruler is placed in a difficult situation but Calie stands ready figure it out. And without spoiling anything, readers this is an author that knows how to chart a quality course. So to sum up: this release needs to be on your pull-list.

I’ve become a huge fan of Luca Claretti! Each page and panel is locked into a world of insanity, but also maintains enough grounded material to make me believe in the logistics of this place. Because of the authenticity of the pencil strokes the whole of the narrative gains support as it develops a plot that’s bound to engage from beginning to end. And when the colors by Leonardo Paciarotti bubble to the surface there’s no doubt that we’re all in for a striking visual treat.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents White Queen: Age of Darkness #2 is excellent entertainment. With a team that makes use of Zenescope‘s current landscape there’s no doubt that this trek comes recommended.
