BUT STILL READ IT: please .. This is simply my review and this comic deserves praise despite what I wrote.
Continues the momentum built up in volume 1 without missing a beat. There’s a lot of background on the leads here, always relevant to their current character and personality as well as to the ongoing story. Stjephan Sejic joins the art team, and his work is just as perfect for the book as Upchruch’s.
The plot pays off some ongoing threads while introducing more (including a big cliffhanger for next volume). However as good as the general story is, the true highlights of Rat Queens are its characters and their development. Despite how awsome everyone is I am developing favorites: Hannah’s proving to be the surprisingly deep enigma I was hoping for, and everything Betty does sends me into a laughing fit. That said I could keep going with similar compliments for just about every single character. The cast is that good.
More great stuff. Can’t wait for volume 3.
*Very minor spoilers ahead*
The villain in this book is a villain because his wife was murdered (its not really a spoiler, they tell us pretty soon) . I know, a dead wife should be sad. But honestly, I have read so many books and watched so many movies with dead wives/girlfriends that it honestly isn't sad anymore. It's boring and lazy writing and in the context of the book, the resulted villainy of the now widowed husband is a little unrealistic.
So it has a few other moments that are a little bit cliche, but I do really like this series and would buy a volume three.
Take 1/4 Tolkien
A religion that worships a Cthulu looking squid
Four very different women
A besieged town
A vengeful dude with a terrible artifact
Add in a little crack...
And you have the excellent, funny, tremendous second volume of rat queens!
