CBCC 84: Angela & Sera - Queen of Hel

August 27, 2022

We conclude our Angela & Sera sessions by journeying into the FUNderworld! After two tumultuous mini-series, our Hevenly warriors finally get to spend some time together...jumping through Hela's hoops and the various trials of Hel.

If these two lovers must have a climax, Angela: Queen of Hel is the best one for them. The seven-issue storyline subverts expectations and challenges the two Marvelous bounty hunters in ways unimagined after their last two quests together: Angela: Asgard's Assassin and 1602: Witch Hunter Angela.

We know they belong together, but do they know they belong together? Yes. No. It's complicated. Every relationship requires each partner to choose the other continually. It's a hard lesson but easily achievable if you follow Angela & Sera's path.

Helping us navigate Hel's complicated hold on our romantic heroes is Robin Roberts' Brighter by the Day: Waking Up to New Hopes and Dreams. The Good Morning America host and Women's Basketball Hall of Fame inductee examines her history, filled with regrets and joys, and considers how those piercing moments shaped her present, giving her hope for the future.
