Rat Queens: Pro-lady, adult graphic novel for fantasy lovers

Rat Queens, Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery - Kurtis J. Wiebe, Roc Upchurch

If you want a SFW graphic novel with kickass lady heroines who are noble as heck, don't read any further.


If you don't mind that your anti-heroines are vulgar, drink, have sex (not on-page in vol. 1) & do recreational drugs in between adventuring quests out of the medieval town of Palisade, not to mention engage in lots of gore-- while always having each other's back while they wreak mayhem and find out who's out to get them and the rest of the adventuring crews in the town, then this is the graphic novel for you.  Really diverse set of characters without any commentary on it (they just are, which is great) and the feel of worlds and worlds to be explored.


Silly, sober, gory, and hinting at fantastic backstories for the main & primary secondary characters as well as some great world building, Rat Queens is a D & D quest set to page (though you don't need to be a D & D player to enjoy the read), with amazing art, epic friendships, family drama, and lots of spatter and gore.  Vol. 1 is a collection of #1-5.  6 & 7 are out, but it'll be a bit before there's another trade edition.
