Bomb Queen, by Jimmie Robinson (Five Weapons, The Empty), is returning to comic shelves after eight years. The Queen of Obscene will star in a four-issue miniseries titled Bomb Queen: Trump Card and – as implied by the title – she’s back to take on Trump. Published from Image/Shadowline, her latest adventure is rated “very mature,” in PR, and has been problematic in the past. See also marketing that “it’s pretty much guaranteed to offend everyone!”
The Queen’s action/satire series made its first appearance in 2006, when she established herself as a friend to criminals everywhere, overthrew local government and enacted a strict No Heroes law. She would later appear in a handful of other series, as well as Hack/Slash. In Bomb Queen: Trump Card, she’s reappearing to campaign against President Trump, steal his voter base, and stop him from becoming president for life in a way that only she can.
Bomb Queen: Trump Card #1 will be available on August 26, 2020. PR and cover art is available below.
Set in the year 2024, Bomb Queen: Trump Card follows supervillain Bomb Queen on her quest 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.
This new chapter in the series promises the kind of irreverent, twisted fun longtime fans of the character have come to expect—in other words, it’s pretty much guaranteed to offend everyone!
“I returned to Bomb Queen to get a few things off my chest,” said Robinson. “From social politics to the state of the comic industry, nothing is safe from the Queen of obscene. Sometimes the best medicine is bitter and hard to swallow, and considering the current state of things, it seemed the perfect time for her to return to add to the chaos!”
