Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:

Rat Queens Vol. 2 CoverTitle: Rat Queens, Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth

Author & Illustrator: Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch

Publisher: Image Comics

Anticipated Publication Date: February 11, 2015

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.

Collects RAT QUEENS #6-10

I feel like I’ve been waiting for RAT QUEENS, VOL. 2: THE FAR REACHING TENTACLES OF N’RYGOTH for ages, but in reality it’s only been a couple months. For once in my life I was ahead of the trend…and you better believe I’m gonna gloat about it. If you’re a fantasy fan and you haven’t read Rat Queens, you need to get on it. A ragtag group of loveable misfits doing magic, going on quests, and getting into brawls probably sounds familiar to you, but how many times have you encountered a story where that ragtag group is comprised entirely of women? Probably not often.

Based on the title and cover artwork for Vol. 2, I can tell that  N’rygoth, the floating squid entity that serves as the principle deity for one of the fantastical religions in the Rat Queens universe, will be a major focus. And I for one cannot wait! Here’s hoping that the encounters with N’rygoth result in a little bit more backstory for Dee, my personal favourite of the Rat Queens.

  1. Still gotta start with the first volume. But Wendy loves it, and everyone else seems to as well. I should pick this one up 🙂

    1. I’m seriously so happy that you’re on board for this series! I feel like you’ll do a good job convincing others to hop on the band wagon.
