Kurzbeschreibung

8. April 2014 Rat Queens
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bloody, sexy and witty 4. Mai 2014
Von Ylene
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a fan of Lord of the Rings, Forgotten Realms & Eberron novels and I have been playing Dungeons & Dragons, Das Schwarze Auge and Call of Ctulhu for 15 years. This graphic novel is for me like a wet dream come true. Good plot, awesome art and the most brazen mash-up of fantasy stereotypes ever done with feeling. It's like a love child of Terry Pratchett and your favorite Suicide Girl. The rat queens are the foul-mouthed, mean-spirited yet good-hearted queens of cool and I would just love to end up in tavern brawl with them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen großartig 5. Juli 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das ist definitiv ein herrlicher High Fantasy Comic für Erwachsene. Alle Hauptcharaktere haben ihre schrägen Eigenheiten, die es fast unausweichlich machen, dass irgendwas immer schief geht. Es geht sexy, großmäulig und teilweise recht brutal zu, also nichts für zu zarte Seelen. Der Humor ist in erster Linie ziemlich dreckig, was mir persönlich absolut zusagt aber das ist Geschmackssache.

Die Zeichnungen sind detailiert und farbenfroh und gefallen mir persönlich sehr gut. Und alle, die skeptisch sind bzgl. der englischen Sprache - es ist wirklich nicht allzu knifflig zu lesen, also durchaus auch was für Leute, die Englisch nicht als zweite Muttersprache pflegen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Total Hoot 26. März 2014
Von Pop Bop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This volume collects the first five comics in the Rat Queens series. I couldn't find much in the way of a description or review of the Rat Queens, so I went right to this collection to get the full story.

Well, the bottom line is that this is the first sword-and-sorcery action comic collection I've seen, ever, that is really and truly funny. The four Rat Queens, a band of maiden mercenaries, are, more or less: 1) Dee, a reformed squid cult member, 2) Hannah, conjurer and the daughter of a twisted pair of necromancers, 3) Betty, who acts like an airhead party girl, and 4) Violet, who uses her sword ironically.

Early on the four are sprung from jail, in which they've been held because of excessive brawling and troublemaking, and sent away to clean out a goblin cave. On the way the Queens get very upset with Betty when they find out that all she has packed in the food bag is candy and drugs. That sort of gives you an idea of this series' vibe.

That said, the real plot is that someone is trying to wipe out all of the mercenary bands in town, including the Rat Queens. It's time for them to take matters into their own hands. Actually, it's always that time. The rest of the story, (no SPOILERS here), is all mayhem and wisecracks.

Each of the Queens has personality to spare. This is not one of those comics where all of the characters look alike and each figure has the same expression no matter what's going on. These are well drawn and expressive characters, with clean and clear action sequences and a nice sense of movement and place. The cursing is very creative and the insults that get hurled all over are even more creative. This is funny, bawdy, ripe stuff which, if anything, is highlighted by a few quieter and more touching scenes. Each Queen has an interesting backstory which is teased out through the tale. By the end you have four very distinct and engaging characters, to whom you feel a real connection. How often can you say that about a comic series?

So, this is a collection with energy and wit and action to burn, and a very nice find. It accomplishes what most buddy-action efforts can only attempt - memorable and engaging characters, a real sense of camaraderie, a driving narrative, and real wit. I'll remember and look for further Rat Queen adventures.

Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sword and Sorcery with the perfect amount of Sass 31. März 2014
Von Tyler Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
In this golden age of comics, it has become far too easy to let excellent series slip under the radar. There are almost too many series out, but if you are at all interested in fantasy with a grown up edge, do not miss Rat Queens. The series follows the mercenary group, the Rat queens, as they try to navigate the town politics of palisade without pissing everyone off and streaking the streets red with blood.

Betty, the smidgen and rogue, Dee, the atheist cleric, Hannah, the foul mouthed mage, and Violet, the dwarven warrior, make up the Rat Queens. They are drunken, violent, foul mouthed, and a lot of fun. The art perfectly suits the excellent story that is equal parts fantastic action as it is well crafted, humanizing, character developing moments.The city of Palisade is excellently crafted and filled with interesting, engaging characters of whom you will want to know more of by volumes end. It is the rare series whose ancillary characters endear themselves so quickly, making Rat Queens all the more impressive.

This volume, at the time of writing this, is $8.99 for the five issues currently on the shelf. For such a low price, you get a lot in return. Though I came into this series knowing nothing about it, I can say with total certainty that I would be going to my local comic shop and having it pulled, on top of collecting these excellent collection. A must buy for fantasy fans who don't mind things on the grown up side. A definite buy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen D&D Meet the Hills 30. Mai 2014
Von Travis Starnes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If anyone has read and enjoyed a webcomic called ‘Order of the Stick’ then this strikes exactly the same humour notes, just with fully fleshed out people rather than adorable stick figures. The book is filled with Dungeons and Dragons allusions and while it is not necessary to get those to enjoy this book, I expect joke lines such as ‘+5 to kill Garys’ would get a few blank looks.

This book hits on the level of humour which is so perfectly placed you would think it had been written with me in mind. It is not laugh out loud funny, very few comics manage that, but it is non stop, constantly poking fun at the subject material which makes it an utter pleasure to read. The adventuring parties are making such a mess of the town that they get an ultimatum of ‘undertake a task, or get out of town.’ The tasks are the usual heroic ones such as ‘clean out the goblins caves’ or ‘take care of these bandits’ but thrown in as well are the ‘cleaning of the privies at the barracks’ which got a chuckle out of me. It all goes wrong when black clad assassins turn up and start decimating the parties.

The rest of the book is a tongue in cheek ‘whodunit’ but it is more window dressing for the group to beat up monsters, drop rocks on people and generally get cut to within an inch of their lives. There is a wonderful feeling of ‘history’ in the book as everyone seems to have lives that have gone on in the background which bring a sense of character and realism to an otherwise completely unreal story.

The art in this book is a pleasure to behold. All the lead characters are immediately identifiable, both from a distance and to their roles within the ‘game.’ We have a dwarven fighter who has apparently shaved her beard to look like a normal woman, but squashed and stretched; a pixie like diminutive thief; a dark skinned priestess who does not believe in gods; and the prerequisite tall slim magic using elf. Putting aside the swords and sorcery they act like a bunch of 20-something girls on a night out, racing to get drunk and throwing themselves at attractive men (or women).

If you like swords and sorcery with a sense of humour, especially if you have done any role playing before, then this is definitely a book you will want to read. If not, I wonder if it will have quite the same effect, if the jokes will simply fly over peoples heads. Then again, I expect that pretty women beating the living crap out of monsters and then getting roaring drunk probably plays to a much wider audience than I give it credit for.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My kind of mercenaries 21. Mai 2014
Von Alt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This volume collects Rat Queen issues 1 through 5. The Rat Queens cast spells and slay trolls and talk about sex at every opportunity while not having much of it. They also drink quite a bit. All of that makes the Rat Queens my kind of mercenaries.

Someone is trying to kill all the "adventuring parties" in Palisade, including the Rat Queens. The plot, which mostly consists of random violence, has the Rat Queens finding the person responsible. To do that, they engage in lots of mayhem.

Although bloodshed dominates, the story is written with a large helping of wit. The four Rat Queens get along with each other but, like any family, they quarrel and bicker and tease each other. Their interaction is a source of substantial amusement. The story actually starts to gain substance at the end, although whether that promise will be fulfilled in later issues remains to be seen. Not that substance is necessary in a work that is essentially a parody of sword-and-sorcery tales, but it will be interesting to see what else can be drawn from the premise.

If you are a fan of adorable elves, ugly trolls, blood, and swordplay, you'll like the art. Even if you aren't a fan, you'll probably like the art. The art is good.
