Empress Cixtisis HC (2019 Fantagraphics) comic books
Story and art by Anne Simon.
Set in the same world as Anne Simon's The Song of Aglaia, Empress Cixtisis tells the story of another female ruler who kidnaps all of the men from Agalaia's kingdom and brings them to Tchitchinie to castrate them and make them her slaves. Will Queen Aglaia be able to bring the men back and restore peace to the region? Anne Simon showcases a deft touch in this allegorical fantasy that blends feminism, satire, and farce into a story brimming with subversive twists and comical turns.
Softcover, 7-in. x 9-in., 80 pages, full color.
