Every kid I knew grew up loving the Arthurian legends. I’m still a little enthralled by them, mainly because of the rousing adventures that dealt with swords and sorcery. From Sir Thomas Mallory to T.H. White to Mary Stewart to Marion Zimmer Bradley, these stories have been told and retold from a variety of viewpoints over the years. So it should come as no surprise that we now get an even more modern take in The Once and Future Queen #1.
Amelia Cole and the Unknown World is about a young woman with magical powers who can travel between dimensions. Living in the Non-Magical world but working in the Magical one, she travels back and forth through a portal that opens up in her Aunt Dani’s house. Everything is going well until a Demon from the Magical world shows up in the Non.
After fighting the Demon Amelia realizes that something is very wrong. She travels to her Aunt’s house only to realize that the portal her and her Aunt has been using is deteriorating, allowing more than just the two of them to travel. The only way to solve the problem is to destroy the portal. But in the rush and commotion, Amelia stumbles upon another door. Going through Amelia finds a world where both Magical and Non-Magical exist together. The problem is, just because they exist in the same world doesn’t mean they do it harmoniously.
