So today, I'll share Kingdoms Lost by Boulet (at the end of the week I'll probably share a very different comic by Boulet, probably his most popular).

Kingdoms Lost (or possibly Kingdom Lost or Kingdom's Lost - the translation is a bit funny) is about a prince, his captured princess, the villainous wizard, and the end of the world. But really, it's probably more about bullying and the patriarchy and how we find ourselves in comfortable roles that aren't really in our best interest or in the interest of others.

What happens when the veil lifts and we begin, just a little, to see things as they are—to get, as the children of tomorrow say, woke?
