The Queen

£13.99

QUEEN GIVEN THE MARVEL COMICS TREATMENT! Former Marvel Comics editor and writer Tim Quinn has created a unique Platinum Jubilee souvenir with a brand new comic book telling the life story of Queen Elizabeth II. Quinn has used his colleagues from the publishing giant to illustrate the book. “As I researched the Queen’s life story, I was struck by how visual the tale was,” says Quinn. “It proved to be a perfect story to approach in exactly the same way we produced the super-hero titles at Marvel Comics.” The book captures the Queen’s story from childhood to the present day. It has been put together to raise funds for the Merseyside children’s charity Liverpool Heartbeat who create literacy projects for schools. “There’s nothing quite like the Marvel method of storytelling to capture the imagination of even the most ardent non-reader,” says Quinn. “The combination of the Marvel approach and the Queen’s amazing story has proved to be a visual treat.” The book was presented to the Queen at Windsor Castle and received a very positive response which is featured in this new printing.
