The life of Queen Elizabeth, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, is celebrated in a new comic strip from TidalWave Comics, covering her public and private lives, major events, family scandals and crises.

The Queen died on September 8 aged 96 and was laid to rest alongside her beloved husband Prince Philip on September 19 after a day in which Britain and the world left her bid a final farewell, in a dazzling display of pomp and ceremony.

“I wanted to start small – the legend of the bees – and end big – the funeral seen by millions around the world,” co-writer Michael Frizell said in a statement. “It was an apt way to describe his 70-year reign.”

Among the 2,000 congregations in Westminster Abbey, where monarchs have been married, buried and crowned for the past 1,000 years, were some 500 presidents, prime ministers, foreign royals and dignitaries.

The book, released Wednesday, is available digitally and in hard and soft covers.
