They put the sass in assassin!
The deadliest queens in space are back at Dark Horse in Killer Queens 2: Kings, Not Wings. This new miniseries is a continuation of the original Killer Queens which was nominated for both an Eisner and GLAAD award, and follows two reformed assassins-for-hire, Max and Alex, as they use their slay-worthy skills for good. A queer take on 1950’s sci-fi nostalgia, the comic features an all LGBTQ+ creative team including writer David M. Booher, interior artist Bradley Clayton, colorist Harry Saxon, letterer Lucas Gattoni and cover art by Chris Ables.

Cover Art by Chris Ables
On Alex’s home planet, Max and Alex face their most formidable foe yet–Alex’s father! This hulking, misogynist barbarian king demands Cahl’s wings be removed so they can fit the royal ideal of masculinity. Can Max and Alex save Cahl before the king makes good on his campaign promise of “Kings, not wings”? Probably. Will they look fabulous while they do it? Absolutely.
