Rat Queens, Volumes One and Two, by Kurtis J Wiebe et al
There's a very specific audience for this comic; luckily, I fit right into it! The Rat Queens are a group of four women of various races - only, this is based on Dungeons and Dragons, so "races" really means species: elf, dwarf, etc. There's magic and mayhem and very big swords. Oh, and a whole lot of swearing. So the "very specific audience" this comic is geared towards are people who enjoy D & D, badass women, and off-color humor. It's great fun! The art is really beautiful, expressive and rich. The story line is a good mix of bigger picture and smaller side stories. The dialogue is snappy and fun. All in all, this is a pretty good start to my comics education!
