Steampunk Snow Queen #1 & 2

Disney's animated movie Frozen was the most successful computer animated movie of all time.

I won't bore you with the story because unless you've been buried in a cave somewhere you've at least seen or know about the movie.

But...and that's a big but.  What if the story was tweaked and expanded, slightly darkened and given a whole new twist by being set in a Steampunk world?

That's exactly the premise behind Antarctic Press's Steampunk Snow Queen #1 & 2 as written, drawn, colored (and who knows what else?) by the uber-talented Rod Espinosa.

Rod throws in some intrigue, romance, politics, Steampunk technology and a stellar cast of characters that put Frozen to shame.

If this series was made into a movie you better bet I'd go see it.  It's that good.

Rod's command of drawing pencil, inks and color is second to none and his imagination when it comes to costume design, environments, technical accessories, transport and weapons has to be seen to be believed.

Where does he come up with this stuff?  Why other comic book publishers have not tried to grab him up is a mystery to me.  Antarctic Press is very lucky to have his tremendous talent behind many of its titles.

Pick up both issues (and the entire series). You'll be glad you did.
