I've been hearing about this comic for a long while, and now that I finally got a copy and read it, I can see what all the fuss is about.

So... yeah. I want all of this all the time. Can we somehow make this happen?

For mature audiences only! I totally loved this novel and have placed the next 3 on my Amazon wish list. These women are cool and bad to the bone 😄

The Rat Queens!


I've been searching down this book from the local library. One minute they have it..then somehow it disappears, but thanks to my lovely friend Kat I got approved by Netgalley to read this. Yay Kat!

This might not be the graphic novel with the most consistent story-line but you know, sometimes you just don't care.
It has ass kicking women characters!!

Beating the shit outta bad guys!

Fun! and more Fun!

I was a little hesitant going into this one, but I needn't have worried because Rat Queens was exactly what I was looking for after finishing Blue Lily, Lily Blue.
This graphic novel had me from the start with the name, the logo, and the concept. I really enjoyed the time I spent reading it.
There was humor, badassery, lots of adventures, and the commentary was outstanding.

In this volume we follow a group of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they're in the business of ki

This compilation of the five first chapters of the Rat Queens series had some fun scenes and entertaining characters, but overall the story is something that simply did not trigger anything inside me.

I won’t lie, before checking the ‘‘Best Graphic Novels & Comics’’ Goodreads nominations, I have never heard of this. Neither would I have been very intrigued and curious of reading it, even if I had. But, whenever there is a book that is nominated for something, I always feel the need to see for

This is such a fun graphic novel series! Rat Queens follows a band of all lady Dungeons and Dragons-type adventurers who fight monsters, make trouble, and frequent the pub. This is going to be a great series for fans of RPGs, as there are so many references to video game and D&D mechanics. It's as if the series is winking and nodding to RPG fans. Even if you aren't an RPG player, this series has so much for everyone. The Rat Queens are a varied band, with women of all sizes, races, and sexua ...more

"Did you seriously pack candy and drugs for dinner?"

This was amazing. I'm seriously over the moon on how many feminist graphic novels are being published nowadays.

You'd better not call it feminist, Carmen, you'll scare people off.

Oh, okay. How about carnage, creative swearing, drugs, sex, and squid gods? Does that sound better? You can easily read this and never think about feminist theory if you don't want to. Happy now?

Ecstatic.

I did not much care for plot and characters during the book's first half. A bunch of young female fantasy characters designed by male creators to be perceived as emancipated based on their cooler-than-thou attitudes and on their ability to commit "manly" acts of senseless violence, I thought. Not my kind of feminism.

In the book's second half, however, the female protagonists are further developed and become much more likable and engaging, a shift in tone that also opens up new opportunities for

I'm in love. With all four of them.

Coolest mercenaries ever. Why? They're mayhem-inducing badasses. I don't care if there isn't much of a plot here. I wouldn't even care if there was no plot at all. Wherever these Queens go, I want to tag along.

Gah, I dunno internet. I know y'all love this book but blech, it just did not sit well with me. I don't even know what exactly I'm looking for from a book with an all-female cast that kicks a lot of violent tail -- I mean, it's one thing when a book like Danger Girl is out there demonstrating what gratuitous fanboy cheesecake is really all about, and lord knows that even a book like Tank Girl (which I think is pretty rad) has totally questionable ethics and motives.

'Cause shit just happens sometimes, that's why.

As punishment for excessive barroom brawling, the Rat Queens are sent to clear some pesky goblins out of a cave. Whoa! Look out, gals! It may be a set-up. But who would want these lovely ladies dead? Whoever it is had better disappear, because the Queens are now out for revenge. Bloody, bloody REVENGE...

Shelves: nope
It's commendable that two men, one writer and one illustrator, have set aside their shallow teenage perversions to create a complex narrative with dynamic characters who run from place to place killing things and indulging in near fatal bouts of homoerotic viking hedonism. Much like Thor, but without all that “fluffy” mythology and altruism. Populating this story are naked women who only know how to joke about dicks, drinking, and getting high, which of course provides valuable life lessons, an ...more

Where has Rat Queens been all my life? Seriously, this was spectacular, especially for someone who has played D&D campaigns that have lasted years! I was instantly attached to all four of these women, and they became my little babies and I wanted no harm to come to them!

I will say that is not a PG book by any means! Go into this knowing that there will be swearing, drinking, drug use, and sex, lots of sex.

So who are the Rat Queens?

I can't stress how much I enjoyed meeting this bunch of mercenaries. Indeed each and every one of them brings something captivating and hilarious to the story :

Dee refuses the so-called God worshipped by her family.

Betty thinks candies and mushrooms are great dinners and shows Sherlock's vibes sometimes.

Meet the Rat Queens. A mercenary band for hire that puts the sexy back in wholesale slaughter.



Seriously this book was awesome. It has been a while since I've enjoyed myself this much in a comic book, but this one had me laughing out loud and reading snippets to my husband, who enjoyed it as much as I did.

If you want tales about SUPER FUN bad-ass female heroines, these Rat Queens are beyond Xena. The fantastic violent actions are not for children, but surprisingly I found them light hearted. I've never winced seeing the art of violence of RQ comic books.

As some of you, LadiSean in particular, might know; I VERY recently joined a Dungeons & Dragons adventurer's quest. And as should be of little shock to anyone I chose an Elf as my alter-ego. A druid cleric named “Acaedia” to be exact. I AM LOVING IT!

Rat Queens takes place in a world not all too different from my current world of Dungeons & Dragons, and as such caught my attention and my sqeetastic love right from the get go.

OMG I LOVED THIS! I think this is my first 5 star rating of 2015.



This is so right up my alley. It's about a kickass group of girls who call themselves the Rat Queens. They generally do nothing but get up to mischief (fighting, drinking, tripping out on magic mushrooms, the usual). But at their core, they are true friends and just searching for the same things we all are - love, friendship, money to pay the bills, alcohol, good sex...

It's got:

Firmly set in the fantasy realm of magic and dragons, our heroines are: Hannah the Elven Mage with Amy Winehouse hair, Violet the Dwarven warrior (who’s shaved her beard off), Dee the human cleric who doesn’t believe in the gods her parents worship, and Betty the Smidgen thief, a teeny tiny girl with the ability to quaff major amounts of beer and ‘shrooms. Together, they are the Rat Queens, a band of mercs who quest hard and play hard!

Except the playing has gotten out of hand lately in the town

So funny and loved seeing realistic female body types! These ladies are kick butt and I loved them all - jumping into Vol 2!

Well, this was ok.

It had some good:
-Primarily female characters
-Females kicking butt and getting butt kicked. Equality, ftw!
-Humor
-Adventure, gore, and trolls!
-Diversity!
-It's got some pretty cute cuteness.

It had some bad:
-The four lead women are less women than they are partying Peter Parker, sensible Clark Kent, dwarf Hulk, and bitter Bruce Wayne (or the TMNT) only with boobs, probably-vaginas, pretty hair, and shapely bodies.
-Oh, stereotypes, what would we do without you?
-Lots of girl-on-girl

I am crushing real hard on Violet and Hannah,to be honest. Aggressive humor, kick-ass female friendship, ladies who don't give a shit about what others think about them, some pretty cool action scenes and awesome guys too - Sawyer and fucking Orc Dave with his bluebirds of healing. What more do you need? Magic? Well,you can bet your sweet ass there's magic in here too. Realistic body image? You can check that one off the list as well. Different sexual orientations?

It's done. It's decided. Rat Queens is my new favourite graphic novel.

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.



When I got started in this medium, I made the unwise decision of picking up Saga, Volume 1 first...and well, everything else hasn't even come close since.

But now there's this, and I love Rat Queens so much that I can't even write a coherent review.

Rat Queens, Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery takes place in the small town of Palisade and is a humourous tale of monster-slaying mercenary gangs, involving mostly violence and killing and drinking booze. Lots of booze. And lots of violence too.
