Book Review: Vagrant Queen vol 1 by Magdalene Visaggio, Jason Smith (Illustrator) Harry Saxon (colourist) Zakk Samm (Letterer)

Former child queen Elida was driven from her throne at age ten and forced to wander the galaxy, evading the revolutionary forces that wanted her dead. When an old frenemy claims to know the whereabouts of Elida’s long-lost mother, she is forced to return to her former kingdom and stage a rescue.

The cover art made me pick this one up off the shelf and then the blurb finished the job and made me want to read it!

I have slightly mixed feelings about this one, the story is great and I really enjoyed the art but I did struggle in place to follow exactly what was going on. A few times we seemed to jump between scenes and even skip about timewise with no visible cue this and I spent a confused few panels trying to fill in gaps/ align where we were now.

Overall I did enjoy this fun little space adventure, I like Elida she was an engaging character and her love/hate relationship with Isaac was fun to watch play out (no romance here which is refreshing, just antagonistic friendship).

All in all a fun way to spend an hour.
