    Full review now posted!Look what I found! My favorite graphic novel I’ve ever read. Ever. Man, this just made me so darn happy. While the art was not as beautiful or the plot line not as deep as some other graphic novels I’ve read, this is by far the most entertaining one I’ve ever experienced. I’ve read a lot of science fiction graphic novels, but very few that were just straight fantasy. This one right here? It was fantasy out the wazoo. I don’t even know what a wazoo is, but Rat Que [...]

    I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This was great! The story was exciting, the characters were well-developed, and the artwork was fantastic! I've been seeing this series listed on Comixology and for a while, and passed it over simply because it sounded too far out of my "normal" realm of comics. I'm glad I requested this one, and that I was approved. It was very well done.The artwork was wonderful. Stjepan Šejić, Tess Fowler, and Roc Upchurch all did an outstandi [...]

    Rat Queens is awesome, so I bought this Deluxe Edition of the first 10 issues. You should really check this series out.I originally reviewed these issues with each trade paper. Those reviews are linked below if you're so inclined.Rat Queens, Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery - (My Review)Rat Queens, Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N'rygoth - (My Review)

    This was amazing!! I love it so much. Sass. Sorcery. Badass ladies. Lesbianism. I mean awesoooooome!! Cant wait for volume 3!

    I loved this the first time I read it. But I don't remember it being this good. I swear I laughed on just about every page. Fantastic story. Great art. And pulling the first 2 volumes together in a single deluxe edition - I may break down and buy this. The $40 price tag may be a little steep. But this comic? It's worth it. And the additions from the original TPBs (trade paperbacks) are amazing. Braga's story is fascinating. I'd love to hear more about her. I hope she becomes a regular. Violet's [...]

    OMG, I loved this! The characters, the illustrations, the story, the world, everything! May I be included in their group? I want to be a Rat Queen.There's a lot of action and a lot of things happening, but also so much love and heart. Each character is fleshed out and has their own background story that I, for one, can't wait to delve deeper into :D

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This medieval fantasy sees 4 women team up for adventures and debauchery. The group consists of Hannah; the elven mage, Dee; a cult goddess who has lost her faith, Violet; a dwarven warrior and Betty; a smidgen thief who loves the party lifestyle. The group, along with others, are given missions by towns but often end up destroying the town they're supposed to help with their hard partying ways, somethi [...]

    Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes The Rat Queens Deluxe Edition Vol. 1 covers the first two volumes of the series.Seldom have I heard so much about a comic series and read such raving reviews. However, after reading them I never really had a good idea of what the book was about. And, I won't explain it into detail either because you'll have to find out for yourself. Besides I believe that the story in this case really is less important than the characters, who really steal the show.De [...]

    I love this edition; it all looks amazing and all the little bonus features are fantastic.This series moves, well, super fast but there's no shame in that 'cause it's really fun with lots of action. And the artwork (even with the artist-swapping) is incredible.I want mooore, and I really hope that animated series gets picked up and rolled out!

    Rat Queen Volume 1 Part 1 by kurtis j wiebe. Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they're in the business of killing all god's creatures for profit. It's also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Ta [...]

    This book is excellent. If you like D&D (or fantasy adjacent things), but think it should have more ladies, this is for you. If you like cursing and dirty humor and don’t mind fantasy drug references, this book is for you. I loved it the first time I read it, but it was even better upon rereading.

    I liked this one more than I thought I would!Rat Queens is a funny, raunchy tale about 4 adventurers set in a D&D-like world. The characters are all really likable and entertaining, and the art is good even with the switches made to the creative team.

    Robert
    Very entertaining, especially the characters! It is funny read and it has a lot of action and gore and most of all it is silly (in a good way). And may I add that the art is very nice, loved it!

    Disclosure: I received a free e-galley copy of this book from Image Comics.Why did I wait so long to read Rat Queens?? This ARC has been on my computer for at least a month, probably more. I'd heard about the series last fall, and the local comic store clerk recommended it to me after finding out I liked Image and played D&D. Seriously, though: it's a hilarious, well-drawn, action-packed AND character-driven story about an all-female adventuring party (with some queer action thrown in)! It's [...]

    I stumbled across the second issue of this comic a few months ago and I was quickly sucked into this world. Even though I'd only met these characters halfway in their journey, I was completely charmed by their collective badarsery and ability to admire an enemy's witty comeback in the middle of a battle. While I was reading this edition, I found myself pulled in again by the eclectic rat queens crew's drama in and out of missions.I was happy to jump into the deluxe edition of the first volume wh [...]

    This book is basically just a gritty, violent, crass fantasy adventure. Those things are right up my alley. The storytelling is fairly standard, but with an all-female main cast that play into a lot of fantasy tropes but subvert a few nicely as well. As the mercenary adventuring party the Rat Queens, they kill wagonloads of orcs, start bar brawls, and fight Lovecraftian nightmare gods. In this volume, the adventures are presented without breaks as one continuous flow of action, debauchery, and d [...]

    Well, my feelings about this one are pretty meh. I liked the art, and that's the primary reason I'm even giving it two stars. The art is cute and the character designs are interesting. Also the action scenes are well done. Several friends had given this good reviews so I wanted to give it a chance but I just couldn't find anything to really like about the story or writing. To start, I don't find this book funny at all. If I had so sum it up I'd call it crude or immature. I found the characters t [...]

    It ia a funny and adult comic. I've liked the characters, the dialogs, the art (mostly), but the story wasn't there. I felt rather empty when I finished it. What was it all about? Ummm One guy wronged another guy, but we don't know whow, and that upset guy is trying to revenge himself with style, but somehow fails and is easily stabbed in the back by on of the Queens. Very deep, fresh story indeed. It was still a fun read, but all the time I was expecting some story, and was disapointed in the e [...]

    3.5-4/5 I didn't LOVE the storyline of this (didn't hate it either) but I did really love some of the characters. I will read the next and see

    Minna
    Awesome. I love the Rat Queens! Only drawback is it ends TOO SOON.The artwork is excellent, too, btw. Don't miss this seriesC provided to me by NetGalley. (Thanks NetGalley!)

    It's probably 3.5 stars. I really don't know how I feel about this one. I keep waffling between three and four stars, but I'm settling on three because that's a good medium rate.Graphic novels are not my usual cup of tea. I've read a handful of them and enjoyed, but the genre is so daunting, where do you start? When I told one of my librarian coworkers that I wanted to get into them, she dashed to the shelves and basically threw this one into my arms.The art style is really, really glorious. I'm [...]

    5.0⭐ Inappropriate AF ⭐ Vituperating ⭐ Termagant ⭐Bad Bitches ⭐ Sex, Drugs, Violent Gore, Midevalist/Supernatural Fantasty, Ragtag-Fem-Friendship ⭐ YAS, RATQUEENS My review of this amazing comic series is pretty much all in the title, but if there's one other thing to add, it's that these writers are just good story tellers. The sex and blood is great, but if you pull away the layers of psychotropic mushrooms and profanity, there is a really moving story happening. The characters are [...]

    Coyer Winter SwitchRatqueens is a series I've heard about for a long time. When I saw the deluxe E-book I knew it was time to read it. Ratqueens is a group of women who have left their past behind them and forged a future together using their skills for quests and inevitably drunken brawls. The story start with several hero groups being sent on missions that are actually deadly traps. As the escape they find someone at the heart of their villiage is planning murder and vengeance for the past. Th [...]

    I thought this was a pretty good comic. What bothered me a little bit was that towards the end of the deluxe edition, some of the art changed during a big battle scene. That kind of threw me off. The story was for the most part engaging and it didn't feel like it was all over the place. I just wish the art could have stayed a little closer to the original style.

    Melissa
    DND fantasy + Feminists = Awesomeness!

    Kristin
    OMG, so much fun! Its like all the sex, drugs, and violence you would expect from a Hunter S. Thompson story, but they're magical lady mercenaries.

    Mic
    I like candy! I like 'mushrooms'. I am BETTY!

    Eddy Giorgi
    Great female leads and even better if you love DnD

    Derek Royal
    Fun stuff. I read the first trade a few years ago, and liked it. I'm glad the series is now back, so I wanted to read this first deluxe volume by way of anticipation of the new #1 issue.
