Broken Frontier Reviews Darkness/Darkchylde: Kingdom of Pain

Art-wise, the Queens make a great team. With Randy on pencils, and Sarah on inks, color, lettering, and design, the book comes together very well. The majority of this issue takes place in an icy nightmare world where it rains blood, and the reader is definitely made aware of this. The contrast between cold blue ice and flowing red blood is explored in depth both through color and design. The sky and the ground stand apart like fire and ice, as do the Darkness and Darkchylde’s costumes. Randy Queen is a master at designing details on monsters, and we see that throughout this issue.
