Review of Rat Queens vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’Rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe

“Gary. I Will. Kill. You.”

Rat Queens Volume 2 picks up with our hard-drinking, ill-behaved, all-female group of adventurers where Volume 1 left off. With the Rat Queens recovering from their post-battle victory party hangovers. But the real threat still looms. To keep it short and keep spoilers to a minimum, Gerrig the Merchant’s machinations lead to a host of eldritch abominations assaulting Palisade. The hallucinations that result give us flashbacks that flesh out Violet’s and Dee’s story. Dee gets an enhanced role in the storyline and a new character important to her is introduced but her story remains the least interesting (healers, always getting Goldmoon’d). Only Betty, the cutest smidgen since George Stephanopoulos, gets left out.

Tentacles included

Rat Queens changed artists between issues 8 and 9 (Volume 2 collects issues 6-10). I didn’t hear about the change until after reading this volume and while I thought something was off about the art, it wasn’t jarring. Hopefully it being “off” is just a function of the dissonance of slight differences and I will love the ongoing artwork just as much as the original.
