Rat Queens Volume 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N'Rygoth - Kurtis J. Wiebe

                So I need to go and track down the first volume of this good fantasy series.  It is a fantasy adventure story involving a group of four diverse women who don’t always understand each other (in particular Betty’s eating of mushrooms) but who are friends.

 

                What’s not to love?

 

                Actually not much – the women are diverse in body type, race, sexual preference, and power.  There is more male nudity than female (though as always in comic books some of the costuming styles don’t make sense).  There is humor.  There is the lesson of great evil superseding minor disagreements.

 

                Truthfully, I wasn’t all that thrilled by all the artwork, but this a series that makes me hopeful that comics can change!
