The Witch Queens

Synopsis: In The Witch Queens. The witch queen Yelena has called the hexencorps down on the Baltimore estate, but Lady Sofia Baltimore’s eclectic band of allies has some surprises in store for the cursed hordes. Meanwhile, Sofia’s fight takes a sudden new turn when an old acquaintance reveals some startling new knowledge about Lord Baltimore himself!

 

The Story

Picking up from the last issue. Lady Baltimore and her friends are holding the Witch Queen Yelena prisoner. Indeed, keeping her captive is proving a huge challenge as the estate of Lady Baltimore comes under attack. During the chaos of this Attack Yelena tries to seduce Charlie Kidd who is helping Lady Baltimore on her mission. After some serious effort. Lady Baltimore and her friends are able to push back the attack.

With the fighting over for now. Lady Baltimore is deep in discussion with Rigo from the Orthic society about whether it would be prudent to torture Yelena for information. Rigo says that torturing her would not be the best idea. But Lady Baltimore remains conflicted. But readies herself for a meeting with Allied forces to learn how deep that rot has set in.

 

The Artwork

Bridgit Connell’s art continues to help drive this story. I particularly enjoyed the panels where Yelena was trying to seduce and bend Charlie Kidd to her will. And the panels that follow where Imogen puts Yelena back in her place were also fun.

Additionally, we have some great panels toward the end of the issue where Lady Baltimore and Rigo meet up with a representative for the Primeminister.

 

Overall

This was a really strong second issue. The writing was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the discussion between Lady Baltimore and Rigo about the merits and the pitfalls of torture. I also enjoyed the sequence where Charlie Kidd gets a bit too close to Yelena and nearly pays dearly for it.

Overall. A solid second issue.
