This strip [The Warrior Queen] was a bit of a gut punch due to how this fairy-tale plays out. The story builds up well to give the strip its emotional impact in the closing panels. Iโ€™m deliberately avoiding saying too much about the story as I donโ€™t want to spoil the strip. The artwork plays well with the fairy-tale tone of the story particularly with the bright colors and sets. The lettering on the captions further emphasized the fairy-tale aspect in how they are presented. Itโ€™s a nice touch that works better than the standard caption design. A well executed strip thatโ€™s all about the ending.
