MP Johnson throws a lot into the mix here - drag queens, dinosaurs, aliens, firemen, skeletons, mad scientists, and more - but does it all within the context of an unusual family drama. It's that family element at the heart of the story that pulls it all together, with Steven juggling a home life with his boyfriend, his son, his ex-wife, and her father. The baby triceratops may just be his ticket to drag queen stardom, but it may come at the cost of everyone who loves him.
There are so many little moments here that I loved, not the least of which is the way Ivanna's drag queen rivals continue to read each other, despite having the flesh dissolved from their bones, their heads removed from their bodies, or their eyes harvested. I thought Ivanna's crawl through a drag king's subterranean lair might be the height of absurdity, but the final dance-off between Ivanna and Dragosaurus Rex makes for an epic finale.
Of course, Drag Queen Dino Fighters isn't just a sci-fi flavored slice of bizarro, it's also a story about love, family, and finding one's self. It's not a heavy-handed message, but it's part of what makes the story work.
Enter MP Johnson's masterfully done Drag Queen Dino Fighters. Ivanna Deflower is at center stage in this theatre of lipstick. Blood. Bad attitudes and dinosaurs from outer space!
Drizzle a hefty amount of dysfunctional family issues, rivalry that contends with RuPaul satisfaction, and a bevy of issues both inside and from beyond the stars and you'll have a delicious catty recipe for absolute pandemonium.
What MP has done here has served us, the readers, with a beautiful reminder of why it is so much fun throwing caution to the wind and just having fun writing a totally bonkers story that even though it feels hurried throughout is a story with quite a bit of heart and chutzpah.
It stands on its feet chugging a tray of martinis and red bulls and then rushes at the reader at full speed with bloodied sequins and buckets of entrails that will have the reader laughing while being showered with blood.
Think late night programming a la USA Up All Night from the 90s when the censors weren't looking. Guaranteed, you'll have a blast reading this.
