Rat Queens take on Empire’s Graphic Novel Reading Club

Empire’s Graphic Novel Reading Club reads and discusses a diverse selection of collected comic books and graphic novels, from the thought-provoking to the entertaining. All are welcome. Read your own copy or pick up one at the shop. Join the next discussion on Thursday, December 11, 2014 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm at Empire’s Comics Vault.

"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 god's creatures for profit. It's also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen 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."
