Rat Queens: Deluxe Edition, Volume 1

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 a

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 Queens packed

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 Queens packed it full to bursting with fantastical awesomeness. There are elves and dwarves and orcs and all manner of other fantasy beings, as well as magic and sword fights and drunken tavern brawls. There are well worn fantasy tropes that are used and reinterpreted and flipped completely on their heads. It has everything a fantasy comic should have and more. Want diversity in your reads? This series has diversity in spades, and it’s all handled deftly and naturally.

Did I mention the friendships? No? There are some fabulous friendships in this series, especially between the four girls who comprise the title mercenary group, the Rat Queens. Even when they’re bickering, you can tell the girls really love each other. And the characterizations!! Each of the four girls has a completely unique personality from her compatriots, and those four personalities mesh into something special. There’s also romance, but in my opinion all of the romances unequivocally play second fiddle to the friendships.

Now, this is definitely deserving of its “mature” rating. There’s nudity and gore and a whole heck of a lot of vulgarity. There’s some legitimate darkness. But even in the midst of all that I found this to be such a fun, light read compared to other graphic novels I’ve read. I really can’t wait to continue the series, and I can’t recommend it highly enough!

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 Amazon 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 outst

Highly recommended!
