Rat Queens : Sass & Sorcery Volume 1 Paperback
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!
This title collecting the first five issues of the sold-out hit series at the special introductory price.

Review by JJbooklvr
Great characters, art work, and plenty of humor. A very fun read. Highly recommended.
Review by ElizaJane
Well this was certainly a lot of fun. Fantastic group of female warriors who are different humanoid species with different abilities and powers. They are a kick-ass team who doesn't take any bull. Joining them in the field and on battles are the remains of another female team that includes a huge female orc and an all-male group called the Daves, since they all have the first name "Dave". This is typical sword and sorcery fantasy questing but it doesn't take itself too seriously with a fair amount of tongue-in-cheek humour and one-liners. This is rated mature not because of any sexual content, though there is some innuendo, but because of the violence. It's quite bloody and messy while still funny at the same time. This is the third book I've read by Wiebe and, while not my favourite, I've been impressed with everything I've read of his. The art on the other hand was ok, not bad, but I found facial expressions became repetitive and unattractive. Otherwise a great read!

Absolutely amazing! I loved this graphic novel. It was hilarious. Phenomenal artwork. Interesting plotline. Unforgettable characters. It has it all and it's definitely worth checking out. Would highly recommend (to a mature audience), especially to fans of Saga.

Really enjoyed it. Foul-mouthed, ass-kicking, humorous, diverse, and entertaining. Recommended!
