This all started in
A-Z game when I noticed there were no pictures of Queen Bee in our gallery. I think the original version of Zazzala, Queen Bee starting in the silver age ('63) looked a bit too dorky and the new updated version is all cyberpunked out. I'm not so crazy about either version so I thought what she needed was to go more retro! So think of this as the Earth-2 Zazzala, an alien Queen with psychic powers that allow her to hypnotize men into becoming her slaves. Very much based on Bill Ward's style.

I like the various "official" Queen Bees perfectly fine (can't say they're among my favourite designs or anything, but they're solid enough), but this is both a very nice redesign of the original 1963 version and a great rendition of her!

Excellent pastiche of Bill Ward's style, too. He's a bit before my time so I had to look up the name, but I recognized the art style as soon as I saw it--and you've recreated it beautifully!

Oh my Gawsh! You dropped some great names there...
I hadn't thought about those since I, too, was a kid...long long ago in an era where Cracked Magazine meant something...back when "70's" didn't refer to an Ashton Kutcher spoof show on TV...
anyway,
Great homage, great design, great job!

Now that you mention it, she does have the same hairstyle and bodytype as Kurtzman and Elder's "Little Annie Fanny" but Annie was blond and had much larger eyes... but this image is an homage to Bill Ward. Ward's cartoons often appeared in Playboy as well as other "men's magazines" so hopefully you identified it with exactly that guy I'm paying tribute to and whose style I'm doing my best to copy here.
I first became familiar with Bill Ward's work as a kid back in the 70's when he did a lot of work for Cracked, a humor magazine with a similar style and format as Mad magazine but Ward had been around much longer. He worked in comics on titles like "Torchy" and "Blackhawk" in the late 40's/early 50's but is more well known for his adult cartoons and illustrations.
