Rat Queens (Vol. 1) : Sass and Sorcery / Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchurch / 108 pgs.
Not even sure where to start with this one. So, "The Rat Queens" is a pack made up of four tough-as-nails, rude, loud-mouthed, booze-guzzling, bar fighting, female warriors; who live on the fringe of society and are paid to help keep even worse elements out of the town. There is Hannah the Elven Mage and pack leader, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. In this introductory story, someone is killing off the gangs that are protecting the town. Will the Rat Queens discover and stop the assassin in time? and who is really behind this plot to oust the gangs?
What you get with this comic is something sassy, funny, rude, irreverent with strong Female lead characters and a lot of gore and violence. I really enjoyed this new series and if you don't mind language, violence, drug humor, and adult situations in your graphic novels then this is one to pick up!!
