When last we saw the titular heroine of writer-artist Mark Smylie's "Artesia" cycle, the warrior queen was mortally wounded, betrayed during negotiations with a hostile ruler. Then the fantasy world of the series was assaulted on all sides by outside forces. Smylie, as co-founder of Archaia , found his business responsibilities preventing him from advancing to the drawing table. When Archaia went dark for a time before its acquisition by Kunoichi, "Artesia" fell similarly silent. Now, more than two years later, Artesia returns with "Artesia Besegied" 3, which hits stores this week.
