“GOLD, GUTS AND GROG,” Part One

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 gods’ creatures for profit.

It’s also a darkly comedic fantasy series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Hobbit Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

A new ongoing series from PETER PANZERFAUST’s KURTIS J. WIEBE and featuring a gorgeous incentive cover by SAGA’s FIONA STAPLES!

Someone wants to kill the Rat Queens? The girls are seeing red and there's only one thing to do about it; get really, really drunk. And, eventually, maybe get to the bottom of who's trying to kill them. Because, let's be honest, they already know why.

Not really what I was expecting... 0

I picked up this issue expecting something amazing, and was a little disappointed. Sure, the art is great, and yeah, the concept is something I really enjoy. However, I found the writing kind of fell a little flat in places. There were some instances of awkward phrasing, and the scene with the group fighting the ogre ended kind of strangely, which is kind of an issue when it's the last part of the first issue of a new series. At any rate, it's still a good read, I'd recommend it to people, and ...
