Rat Queens #2 Available Now!

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.

Get Killed by the Rat Queens!

Owen and I have teamed up with Pat Rothfuss and his team at Worldbuilders for this year’s charity event! For every $10 you donate to our #TeamRatQueens page, you earn a shot at being cameo’d and then horrifically slaughtered by the Rat Queens in an upcoming issue!

All the details are here:

As a bonus, because the Rat Queens family has already donated over $2000, I’ve offered to run a live stream over at our regular Twitch site tonight, December 2nd, at 7PM PST!

Our fundraiser lasts for seven more days, let’s see if we can meet that $5000 goal, everyone! Thanks to all who have graciously donated to the cause, and good luck!

We have one more MAJOR announcement about Rat Queens coming very soon. I’ll post about it once the news drops!
