Last time on rat queens we dealt with the evil tentacle demons that tries to destroy our merry band of heroes and their town.
This was more a continuation of the first volume so it’s best to look at volume one and two as more of a complete story.
We left off on Hannah finding out her Dad was imprisoned and the group head off to try and help him.

Ok, first off this is my little rant. If you don’t like profanity, nudity, graphic and sexual content….. don’t read this!!! I’ve been receiving quite a few comments with people telling em that they don’t read it for this reason, well good for you. But don’t get all high and mighty with me because I just don’t care. There is quite a limited amount of this out there for people to enjoy if they chose so and you get incredible pieces of work like this and Saga, and Chew. This can happen when we stop putting arbitrary limitations of writers and content creators and give them freedom but just stick the warning label on it. Rant over, now onto my review.
This feels like a new story-line for the group and I like the idea that it the story gets given enough time to be developed. Mainstream comic try and tell a story within 5-6 issues as it works well for a bind up and this is why I’ve been moving towards indie comics because they have a large story to tell and characters to work with and build up and they don’t move on because this comic and story is theirs.
This is very much centered on Hannah and her past and her magical society. She goes through some serious character growth and by the end she’s quite unrecognizable. I got seriously infuriated at the end about how it was carried out because it just didn’t mesh for me. Hannah thought the exact opposite of what everyone was actually saying and this was her justification….. kinda didn’t make sense. However my love for Di is dwindling by her pompous and stuck up attitude that seems to be developing.
The writing is still great and I still love the art style even with the full frontal nudity and over sexualised women.
I will keep going with this series because it’s so good!
