About this deal

The little girl beside me twirls in her princess dress. Kate’s character is the younger sister to mine. Kate smiles benevolently down at her. No one has noticed that her nose is bleeding. The little boy, slowly, as if it might not be real, reaches his hand up, just a couple inches, toward the fruit of his adoration. He stops himself. He looks at me: Is this okay? Will I be punished? What all men want to know. I smile and give him a wink. We’ll all be punished eventually. Why not?

Before Queen Maeve is first shown on screen, it is learned throughout the seasons and extra show content that Maeve attended and graduated at Godolkin University, where she would become the highest ranked student. She was then drafted into the Seven as its second member, which Homelander was the first. Homelander states in season two of the show that he had known Maeve the longest and that is how the two had grown so close prior to the show’s events.

I can’t tell if I devoured this book or it devoured me. Either way, it was delicious. A dark, disturbing, devilishly funny peek inside the mind of a murderer that also dares us to examine the darkness behind those bright L.A. lights. I loved every blood-soaked minute of it.”

Full of glamour and gore, this genre-rejecting debut is unlike any I’ve ever read.” —Jean Kyoung Frazier, Lambda Literary Award Finalist and author of Pizza Girl But I attempted it and I realized I love doing this. Thus ensued a seven-year journey of applying to grad school three times before I got in, and then shopping three different books with a million agents. But we’re finally here! It’s been awesome. DC: What drew you to write horror in particular? The Disneyland culture is also a big part of the story. The theme park is like an LA rite of passage - you either sneer at it or let it become a huge part of yourself (I’m the latter). I loved the descriptions of the park, Maeve moving through it. Wow, what a lovely dress you have on! It looks even better on you than it does me!” Kate says to the little girl who sits next to me. They are siblings, the children, and I cannot help but see them as competitors to each other. One will eat the other someday, one will steal the other’s spouse. The little boy, the one with the sugar and the blood, he can’t be older than four, but even so, there is a mind at work.Queen Maeve is a parody of the DC superheroine Wonder Woman in that they're both feminist warriors with mythological ties. Ironically, Wonder Woman is one of Garth Ennis' favorite superheroes despite his disdain for the genre. Queen Maeve's armor is also inspired by the DCEU version of Wonder Woman. This is gory and brutal and beautiful and painful and terrifying and a pure delight."—Stephen Graham Jones Because he has done the good thing, the right thing, and only then become the victim of its vanishing, this virtuous man may now turn with the full support of any onlooker to violence, rage, nihilism, and debauchery. Which were his ultimate true aims all along. To lose himself in the glorious, sanctioned rapture of retribution. How many husbands of wives have lined up at the box office to live out this exact fantasy that they deeply, fundamentally, and brutally desire? Full of glamour and gore, this genre-rejecting debut is unlike any I’ve ever read.”— Jean Kyoung Frazier, Lambda Literary Award Finalist and author of Pizza Girl

Genetic Superiority: According to Homelander, he and Maeve were capable of producing children twice as strong as Ryan. This, however can be called into question, as Soldier Boy's genetics, added with Compound V did not produce a Supe nearly as powerful as would have expected following Homelander's knowledge. Despite the genetical superiority of Soldier Boy and the Compound V boost, Homelander is still extremely similar to Soldier Boy in strength, albeit with different powers (which is almost certainly from the V). Thus, it can be concluded that simply having children with another Supe would not amplify their powers, since it is quite clear that Soldier Boy's superhuman strength did not genetically carry over instantly to Homelander, rather it is more likely that the strength was either given at birth, or from the Compound V, and thus did not produce a child twice as strong as Soldier Boy.But when Gideon Green - her best friend's brother - moves to town, he awakens something dangerous within her, and the world she knows suddenly shifts beneath her feet.
