I first became aware of writer Magdalene Visaggio’s writing via her book Kim & Kim, a fun story about a pair of down on their luck bounty hunters in space. Shortly after finishing the first volume I made myself a list of some of her books that interested me and Vagrant Queen was definitely on that list. Fast forward to now and we’re on the eve of Vagrant Queen making the jump from Vault Comics to the small screen in a SyFy channel TV show on March 27th, so what better time to take a look at the first volume of the comic and get a look at its inspiration?

Decorum #1 by Jonathan Hickman and Mike Huddleston Review!
Editor’s Note: Although I remain in a state of X-Men induced delirium inspired by the Jonathan Hickman written House of X / Powers of X era, the writer somehow found time to kick off an 8 issue Image Comics series, Decorum, with artist Mike Huddleston. The oversized opening issue is a fascinating blend of hard science fiction (reminiscent of Powers of X) and space assassins operating in the seedy underbelly of a developing galactic superstructure.
Since Decorum is full of fluid visuals and challenging science fiction, I recommended the book to Comic Book Herald’s writer supreme, John Galati. Naturally, John responded with an annotated array of thoughtful notes, comparisons, and critiques. Check it out below, and then check out Decorum #1 for yourself!
