Holy cow where do I even start. Rat Queens is honestly one of those books that just leaves you speechless with not only how fantastic it is, but with how empowering it can be. How do I even begin to summarize it. Just imagine your typical Fantasy Dungeons and Dragons RPG and add some wicked dialogue, a great story and some of the best characters I have ever seen and that’s exactly what you’ll find in Rat Queens.

The art in this book is absolutely beautiful. Roc Upchurch outdoes himself in every single aspect of the word. He tosses aside the notion of traditional comic book women by creating them in different races, shapes and sizes. Which lets be honest its something that the the comic book industry desperately needs. 

Let’s talk about the Rat Queens themselves. Not only does each women focus on a class which you’ll find in almost every fantasy video game, but there’s a wide range of race, strong personality and body types in this book.  By the end of the first issue you’ll find yourself identifying with at least one of these wonderful (and yet often very vulgar) women if not all of them. 

The dialogue is another thing that I absolutely adore about this book. Not only is it sometimes gritty and vulgar but it’s often times god damn funny. Its one of these books that’s impossible to put down mostly because you just don’t want to. And when you’re done reading it you’ll probably just go back and re-read it again (I know I did). 

Everyone should get their hands on Rat Queens. Even if you don’t like comics read this book because I promise you’ll adore it as much as I did. It’s only 7 issues in, so there’s still time to catch up, AND the first trade (which consists of the first five issues) is only ten bucks! Did I mention it’s been picked up for a future Animated Series (BECAUSE IT SO TOTALLY WAS)

So get out there right now and read RAT QUEENS. Because you really don’t have any excuse not to.
