Rat Queens Vol. 2 #2 Review

“You Know… Giant Monster Lizard Bird Taking Flight at Any Time Should’ve Been Accounted for in the Plan”

The contemporary feel of the dialogue in Rat Queens is one of the high points that makes the series so compelling. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous the fantasy gets, at least the people we have come to care for sound believable even amidst the most absurd of circumstances.

Rat Queens Vol. 2 #2 From the publisher:

“CAT KINGS AND OTHER GARYS,” Part Two Giant goose dragon eat your friend? Best go down in a bloody battle the bards will lament in years to come! The Queens face a terrifying monster while Betty makes a startling discovery about a smidgen gut merchant that threatens her very life! Featuring an original Rat Queens backup comic by acclaimed novelist PAT ROTHFUSS, writer of the internationally best-selling Kingkiller Chronicles!

And even though the Ladies had not considered the likelihood of flight, the Queens survived the battle, received the well-earned reward and went off to celebrate. Back in Palisade, the real story is then revealed. As it turns out, most heroes are gone from the city and a strange cult has taken over (even one of the Daves is enthralled). After Hannah performs an ill-advised drunken necromancy in a graveyard, a new party of adventurers arrives.
With the larger story now front and center, Rat Queens looks to be setting up another interesting and suspenseful arc. The consistently smart writing and intricate artwork remain. Weibe and Gieni know exactly what they want and how to put it on paper. Well done and I have good hopes for the future. This issue is mostly about exposition, but necessary, so I couldn’t find too much fault with it.

The bonus story written by Patrick Rothfuss is also worth a look.
