Review: Cinderella Vs The Queen Of Hearts #2
Out this week from Zenescope Entertainment
The second issue of this mini-series from Zenescope Entertainment - is Cinderella Vs The Queen Of Hearts #2.
It’s serial killer princess vs queen of…well, hearts, in this high-octane coming of age bloodbath of a story…filled with love, loss, lost love, lost heads, and, well, quite honestly, a lot of lost things including someone we won’t mention’s sanity. Hrh-hem, so Cinderella, now back in the real world and looking to make ends meet, is launched into a crown-on-collision with the Queen of Hearts, who is just trying to live life. Sounds fun…we know.

We come to the middle section of this three-part mini-series, and it’s pretty much choc-full of action after a comedic beginning. Cinderella can be a difficult narrator, but she gives us a good sketch of what happened in the previous issues, although she does leave out some key parts. Things go downhill from there, as these sinister foes both target her and The Queen Of Hearts. What follows is an excellent back-and-forth battle, with some good outcomes all around. There are some discoveries about those who are hunting them and why, but these are subtle hints, which I am sure we will get explained soon.
The differences between Cinderella and Julie play out here, and the reactions to Cinderella’s rambling are perfectly reasonable, and it’s good to see her called out on it.
She just doesn’t notice/care.
I liked this issue; it has some good action, as well as horror movie tropes. Not just once, either.
The art continues on well, with some good blood-and-guts and sci-fi robots in there too. I like the colouring and the layouts of some of the panels.
This was a good middle issue, with enough to get us to the endgame.
