This is labeled as "Book One," but I'm not sure where it can go from here. The story has been told. It is entertaining.
Stuart Immonen is a fantastic artist. He was tasked with drawing a variety of worlds and he was up to it. His splash pages are excellent.
The art by Stuart Immomon is gorgeous and tells the story in perfect harmony with the dialogue and narration.
As a comic: it's a PERFECT 10
As for a Hardcover: it's a 9. Just because, a story and art of this magnitude desserves to be in beautiful 11"x7.5" or 12"x8.5" format! Rather than the cheap, standard 10x6
Prior to purchasing Empress I'd only read one title from Mark Millar, being Jupiter's Legacy.
Which put a unique twist on modern superheroes with superpowers.
Youd expect as much creativity when it comes to Empress a story of a Galactic Queen escaping an unhealthy marriage. .. The story had all the making to be truly character driven..but its not.
The Story: lack of creativity is noticeable. While and it doesn't help that it quickly strays off the title's selling poimt after the first issue. Instead of dealing with the troubles of domestic abuse we see our protagonists being kidnapped by aliens and chased by wierd alien Cat-dinosaurs. Too much of the comic is spent not focusing on the synopisis the attracted the audience.about2 characters will be beloved by the readers. While the majority are sll kinda bland. The Villian is the best selling point. He has a Darkseid/Thanos -esque. He's not given enough page time, but every panel he shows up he steals the show.
The Art is consistent and clean and very consistent.
The Good: Even though it's highly derivative of every other space opera out there, it's still a fun, quick read. It's basically storyboards from a future movie.
The Bad: All flash, no substance. All the characters are superficial and flimsy.
The Ugly: Stuart Immonen gives his typical dynamic art with some pages looking unfinished like they are just thumbnails.
