Is Laura Hudson of Comic Foundry newfound royalty?
It’s a fairy tale story that could only happen in comics.
Recent photographic evidence has come to ComicMix that shows that Laura Hudson, late of Comic Foundry and currently of Cerebus: A Diablog, is the long lost twin sister of Queen Beth Lowery of Waukau, Wisconsin.
Beth Lowery, according to America’s Finest News Source, was recently chosen as the consort of the Mattress King James Koepke III, Lord and Master of a vast bed and box-spring empire in central Wisconsin.
As we all know, there has been no true royal powers exercised in the industry since the passing of King Jacob in 1994. The lack of a royal presence in comics since that time has been long and bleak, with poverty, despair, and widespread variant covers roaming the land.
It is unclear what new privileges her connection to royalty will bestow unto Laura. Royal pardons do seem to be within her portfolio, and it is suspected that she may have the power to grant new royal charters to new comics distributors.
We here at ComicMIx are happy to pay homage to the newly-discovered princess, and hope that she doesn’t turn out to be one of those mad royals who runs around conventions with an axe screaming, "Off with their heads!" We got enough of that when Larry Hama used to carry swords around the Marvel bullpen.
