Goodreads Synopsis: 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 god’s creatures for profit.
It’s 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 Rat Queens #1-5!

RAT QUEENS GOT ME LIKE:
OHHH MYYY GOSSSHHH, Betty is just GODDAAAMMMNN CUUTTEEEE!

Sawyer & Hannah got me like:
But on the other note, its like HURRY UP and get together!!
I just love this comic so so so so so MUCCCHHH!! Can’t wait to read the next volume. The characters are just so understandable cause behind all that bad-ass, partying, ‘don’t care’ mask, they all have a story/family/past they want to leave behind but are finding it hard to do, just like a normal young girl/adult.
Goodreads synopsis: From the Eisner Award-winning duo of Brian K. Vaughan (The Private Eye, Pride of Baghdad) and Fiona Staples (Mystery Society, Thor, SAGA is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. As they visit a strange new world and encounter even more adversaries, baby Hazel finally becomes a toddler, while her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana struggle to stay on their feet
Scriptwriter: Brian K. Vaughan
This was FABULOUS!!! I LOVED every bit of it. I guess I can say that I was a bit annoyed at both parents: Alana & Marko. I mean their relationship was a bit of annoyance. However, I still liked them. Marko is just gorgeous and ohhh myyy goossshhh the lat part got me crying to bits. I was so happy he didn’t end up cheating on Alana. But Alana though? *tsk tsk tsk* . A mum addicted to a drug and her work because of the drug and doesn’t have enough time to care for Hazel because she doesn’t want to put up with her husbands shit who is unemployed and befriends a random lady from the park thyat teaches his daughter to dance and who tries to flirt with Marko.
While this is going on, we have the broken TV Man whoring around at Sextillion unaware that his Princess wife is giving birth to their newborn son. But something unexpected happens later which brings the forces of two fathers fighting for their families.
The art is beautiful as usual and unique. I love the storyline as well. I just wish each volume was at least more than 200 pages long. I just can’t wait for Volume 5 now *aarrrgghh*
