Rat Queens #2 hits stands today and we are super lucky to have a pretty hilarious backup story written by Pat Rothfuss and illustrated by Nate Taylor.
I’m very proud of this issue. I’m always very critical of my work, but this is one of those times where I can feel confident with the final product. Owen Gieni has given the series new life for me. The process we go through each issue is much more involved. Since this issue in particular, we’ve sat down on the phone and broke story from scene to scene until we have the whole thing plotted. In that way, we’ve been able to make jokes stronger and plan for a tighter long game as we plant early seeds now.
I’m thrilled to be back with Rat Queens. I love it again.
I hope you do, too!
PS: That issue 2 B cover is a tribute to Larry Elmore’s classic Dragonlance piece.
