This booze-soaked second volume of RAT QUEENS reveals a growing menace within the very walls of Palisade. And while Dee may have run from her past, the bloated, blood-feasting sky god N’rygoth never really lets his children stray too far.
My ranking: 4.5 bloody stars
Don't you know your mythology, girl? Rats are the harbingers of impeding destruction.
And the adventure continue with Hannah, Dee, Vi and Betty, not your average heroines in a fantasy world on crack. They are multicultural, multi-sized and multi-shaped, and talk without reservations nor filter. (i.e. sweard, fight, drink, and had sex). They are cliche, and make fun of that. And in a bizarre way that works.
We have some sneak-peaks in the past of Vi, Hannah, and some information about Vi. And of course the action never end.
Since the beggining I have some déjà vu scenes with 'Conan' -the Mask-, and with the very famous Chultu,( though I like the comeback from the tentacles and men joke form the first book), and oh sorprise with HellBoy.
But I'm a sucker for cute couples; and I'm talking of Hannah/Sawyer, and awww Vi/OrcDave.
Anyway, these mercs stand their ground.
Minus issues: -Some sudden cut/change in pace, that let me think that I lost some pages or something. (I think I found something a bit weird with Hannah,and then I learn that they switched the artist.)
Note: I read this in my pc, and if I found pdf reader annoying, well, electronic adobe is a pain in the behind.
