This is pretty much "Saga" meets DnD with some super sassy, modern babes leading the charge. This whole bindup was just feral FUN honestly. I love me some unapologetically badass babes with strong friendships and swords. My only issue was that, at times, the story could be a bit disorienting with what was happening, the story arcs could have been tied together a bit better to where the story flowed. As it was, there were times where I thought I was missing a volume or something, which is impossible given the bindup.
Sometimes fantasy can take itself too seriously, especially fantasy that has sword and sorcery, or epic fantasy elements. But that's why I love the Rat Queens. Even in dire circumstances, nothing about these girls or the fantasy tropes/DnD classes they find themselves in is ever taken too seriously and it allows for the author and artist to poke fun at the genre without being malicious. And it's all wrapped up in a nice little action adventure package. If the story had just been a bit more cohesive this would have been 5 stars. As is this is a very strong 4 stars and I'm excited to continue adventuring with the Rat Queens!
