Bomb Queen is a satire of politics and pop culture, with the media and the comic industry itself as frequent targets. Its self-referential nature has led Roy T. Cook to call Bomb Queen a “metacomic.” Inspired by rhetorician Aaron Hess’s critique of political satire, this essay analyzes the use of parody and irony in Bomb Queen. This essay argues that Bomb Queen’s approach both criticizes and perpetuates the gendered politics of the comic book industry and the superhero genre.
