"Since 1980 every director has tried to be Ridley Scott. Flash Gordon was the end of one thing and Alien the beginning of another. It’s very interesting because we always think Star Wars shifted cinema, but in reality it was Alien and maybe even moreso with Blade Runner. The latter wasn’t a financial hit like Star Wars, but it sparked something in directors and writers. As much as I love it, Empress is the antithesis of dystopian sci-fi."

- Mark Millar

"The bad guy in this, Morax, rules ancient Earth and he utterly adores his wife and children. He’s not abusive to them in any way and actually has this strong streak of morality when it comes to his family and doing the right thing. The idea is more than she’s now in her late thirties and realises that all the things he does which keeps them in their incredible lifestyle is just unforgivable and she realises that by carving out what she thinks was a nice future for her kids she’s actually doomed them to inherit this guy’s appalling mantle. Her son is a lovely, gentle kid and she’s especially worried about how he’d cope, but the big thing is that she just wants them to have a normal life. It’s a bit like Carmella Soprano in that when she was nineteen this all seemed very glamorous, but the reality of it all has been growing on her and as she hits her late thirties she comes up with a plan."

- Mark Millar
