The Rat Queens Deluxe Edition Vol. 1 covers the first two volumes of the series.
Seldom have I heard so much about a comic series and read such raving reviews. However, after reading them I never really had a good idea of what the book was about. And, I won’t explain it into detail either because you’ll have to find out for yourself. Besides I believe that the story in this case really is less important than the characters, who really steal the show.
Despite all this positive things I’d heard I was a bit cautious, since my comic reading the last months was not very successful. But I couldn’t have been wrong. It was a great read. The reviews certainly were true. It is a – for me at least – one of a kind comic, with great characters, art that fits it great and I was surprised even at how engrossed I was in the story. The only negative thing I can think of is that the story itself was not really special.
I’m certainly looking forward to read more of this comic.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
