Rat Queens Vol. 1
Rat Queens Vol. 1: Sass And Sorcery | Kurtis J Wiebe
Collects RAT QUEENS #1-5
Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and theyre in the business of killing all gods creatures for profit. Its 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 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!
Collecting the first five issues of the sold out hit series at the special introductory price of $9.99!

Started a new D&D campaign with some friends and apparently our characters are strikingly similar to a few of these ladies.

I read a sample story type thing with these gals and it was great. Finally getting around to this first volume and it's just as I expected: raunchy and bloody. 👌

This was laugh-out-loud ridiculously good fun. An all female band of mercenaries, as hard partying/hard fighting as the all male bands, is one of many sent on a quest only to find an assassin waiting for them. Who wants them dead? The Queens set out to solve the mystery. Sometimes you enjoy reading a story just because it‘s fun & you don‘t have to do much but shake your head in bemusement As it goes along & this is that story. A fun read.

GrilledCheeseSamurai Volume 1 & 2 are soooo friggen good! The whole run is, I suppose, but 1 & 2 are my favs! 👌 5mo

Oh man, this weekend‘s entertainment is causing ALL the feels between Endgame yesterday, The Line Tender (wow, so good!) today & the worst/best yet to come—yes, Game of Thrones, I‘m looking at you. I need a breather. I need to turn the brain off for an hour or so (AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!) & this looks like it will do nicely. “...a violent, monster killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!” Right?

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved these! So much fun 5mo

1. Either Hannah from Rat Queens or April from Lumberjanes 🤣
2. Well, I agree with others, Umbridge was pretty bad but also maybe Holden Caufield...f*ck that guy annoys me!!

Rat Queens vol 1
About: strong females, fantasy, adventure, DnD

I‘ve had this copy for the longest time and never read it until now. Gotta say that it turned out way better than I expected (not sure if it‘s also b/c I started playing DnD too 😆). Anyways, a fun and humorous surprise 👍 I liked it and I will definitely continue with this series ☺️

I was getting my oil changed the other day, and luckily it was just a short walk to the library where I quickly grabbed this and devoured it. I made it most of the way through Volume 2 before my car was ready. Bilford Bogin, it‘s so good!

Drinking, swearing, drugs, fighting, sex, did I mention swearing? Lots of magic and an octopus-god if I‘m understanding things properly. It ends on a cliffhanger and I don‘t have the next volume and that means I‘m super put out about it. I‘d read the next one right now if I had it!

Ok, trying another highly recommended graphic novel. Yes, I have a rather large ebook horde and I can honestly say I have no idea what‘s in there. It‘s a little scary.

Palisades five local adventuring parties are offered dungeon release if they each complete a quest. The parties quickly find they've been set up when assassins appear at each quest location.
The badass Rat Queen party take out some villains and return to Palisades to figure out who set them up.
Filthy language, crude humor, and strong female characters make this a fun series and I can't wait to pick up volume 2!

Ugh. My depression/anxiety is rearing its ugly head. Mostly leaning towards the anxiety side. I'm restless. I'm exhausted but don't feel like I can sleep. Can't decide what to read. It's hard to focus. Praying that this will pass soon. 😔

callielafleur Ugh, this is the worst. I hope you're able to get some rest tonight. ❤️❤️ 2y

This book is funny, irrelevant, violent, heartfelt, and just plain weird. I can't wait to pick up the second volume to see where the story goes.

Also, I relate so much to Dee at the party. ❤

I think it's obvious from my previous posts that I 💚💜💙❤💛 this hard! Their wit, sass, terrible catchphrases, varying morals and ethics, diversity, strength, loyalty, practicality, love of cussing/eating/drinking/getting high/ having sex won me over!!! And I haven't even mentioned the side characters who are equally awesome (lookin at you blue-bird-beard Dave and ya, f*ck you Gary!).
Also, I give a +5 to speed reading if you stack it!😜

llwheeler Best review ever, i think i *have* to stack it now. What was the brutality level like? 2y
Andrea4 @llwheeler why thank you! 😄 I am sure you will read it super speedy 😜 and after Atomic Blonde, pretty normal. LOL but um, about what you'd expect from an adventuring party- lot of sword slashes/messy fighting but as for blatant brutal moments about maybe 4? 2y
llwheeler @Andrea4 Lol can use Atomic Blonde as graphic rating scale. "Oh, about half an AB" ? 2y

Someone is killing off adventuring parties and the Rat Queens, being a group of intrepid adventurers, find themselves in the crosshairs. This is a fun series, full of humor, old school role-playing game references, four-letter words, mayhem, and twists. This volume ends on a cliffhanger and I‘m excited for Volume 2.
