On Saturday evening GLAAD presented Media Awards in a select number of categories. This year’s award for outstanding comic book goes to Rat Queens written by Kurtis J Wiebe from Image Comics. Congratulations to Kurtis and best wishes to Wiebe and new artist Stjepan Sejic on their future Rat Queens collaboration!
Here’s the description of Rat Queens from Image’s site in case you’re unfamiliar with the series. You may want to check it out!
“Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all gods’ creatures for profit.
It’s also a darkly comedic fantasy series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Hobbit Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!”
