What if Ming the Merciless’ wife took off with the kids?
That’s the premise behind Empress, the new miniseries by Mark Millar and Stuart Immonen being published by Marvel's Icon imprint. With three kids in tow – ranging from a teenager who would rather be with her dad to an infant – the wife of ruthless galactic conqueror goes on the run, determined to give her children a better life. Which won’t be easy with her husband on her tail…and did we mention this all takes place during the age of the dinosaurs?
Newsarama called up Millar to talk about Empress, which hits shelves debutes Wednesday, and wound up discussing not only the book, but some of its biggest influences and the current state of science fiction and fantasy.
