BOOK RIOT -- Rat Queens Vol 1: Sass & Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe, Roc Upchurch: A dark comedy centering around 4 women who drink, fight, curse, and go on quests-all while being kick-ass and awesome of course. I wasn't even a few pages in before I was wishing I could be a part of their group which then turned into me imagining all the awesome Halloween/Cosplay costumes to come! I want to tell you my favorite character but I can't choose. I mean I'll choose and then one of the other ladies will say something or do something and I'll pick her instead. So let's say my favorite is Betty, Dee, Hannah, AND Violet. That's my answer and I'm sticking to it. *I feel I must note that while the comic is 100% awesome ladies there has been issues, specifically concerning Upchurch, amongst the creators.

  • If you're looking for an M-rated series that is full of swordplay, sorcery, and sass, and you don't mind a bit of gore thrown in for good measure, you'll love this. Betty, Dee, Hannah, and Violet are mercenaries for hire who can drink a troll under the table, use language that would make an orc blush, and mercilessly eviscerate baddies. Off on a minor "quest" in order to make up for their drunken brawling, this kick-ass quartet soon realizes that someone or something wants them very dead. Making them dead, however, is far easier said than done. It's not just the fantastic pacing of Wiebe's (Peter Panzerfaust, Debris) text or former video game designer Upchurch's blood-sprayed action sequences, but also the characters themselves that drive the story relentlessly forward. Possessed of very different body types, personalities, and idiosyncrasies, and not afraid to share exactly what they're feeling, the Rat Queens are refreshing characters whose story will leave readers thirsty for more.
