Natalie Veith’s article is dedicated to an examination of neo-Victorian comics, which form part of a popular cultural counter discourse to conventional heritage culture surrounding Britain’s (monarchical) history. Through a close reading of Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s From Hell (1989-1996), Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell’s Sebastian O. (1993), and Sydney Padua’s The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage (2015), Veith analyzes the depictions of Queen Victoria in neo-Victorian comics, which experiment with anachronistic, intermedial, and metafictional scenarios. Although Queen Victoria seems to be a marginal figure in these comics, Veith argues that the queen’s relevance lies in her apparent insignificance, as the monarch is used to dramatize and negotiate contradictions within the stories, e.g. concerning power, knowledge, gender, and agency.
