Great premise let down by crude, un-funny humor and fair to middling art.

Since I got my first taste of Bomb Queen, I found it hard to forget this crazy, bomb-slinging villainess. Years later, I finally decided to get volume 1 of Bomb Queen. It's a really good change of pace from seeing heroes always win, or eventually win. To add to having the villain as the lead, we also have a no holds barred, r-rated, wacko tale of a woman who doesn't care about anyone and will kill anyone who even looks at her the wrong. There is no respect for heroes here. Think Garth Ennis when you want to imagine what this book has in store for you. Also like Garth Ennis, Jimmie Robinson's not afraid to take his book into crazy territory. Just being crazy and totally incorrect isn't the only ingredient to a good booth, though. You have to also write a compelling story, and your characters have to get you going in some way. Bomb Queen definitely has the goods. She's darkly funny and you have to love to hate her. She has her supporting cast, like the cowering figure head of a mayor. In this volume, Bomb queen has some competion to her throne, a do gooder named Robert Woods who is trying his best to win favor with the people of Queen's city. She also has a superhero who decides to fight her on her own turf. So the story's good, the main character's appropriately horrible, and the art is great as well. The character design of bomb queen is what stands out the most, at least for me. Obviously in the world of superheroes, Queen's outfit is somewhat tame. She shows off her curves, but the rest of her outfit represent the technological side of this villain. Bomb Queen occasionally pulls out some gimmick explosives, which, of course, deals a massive amount of damage to property and population. If you like well illustrated gore, Bomb Queen's got it. If you like boobs, you've got that as well. If you like tights and capes, all of that is drawn well. The big drawback to Bomb Queen is that reading a homicidal villain in her own book might get old. How many new and exciting ways can you blow up people? I think Jimmie Robinson is a capable writer, but the character doesn't come off as deep, at least not so far. Can you stay interested in someone who may be completely irredeemable? I guess I have to pick up Vol. 2. I have to give cheers to the extras in this trade. You have concept art, but you also have A section on the Four Queens, the crew that Bomb Queen used to run with. In addition, you also have two short comics related to the Bomb Queen series.
