Gunpowder, gelatin. Dynamite with a laser beam

I was skeptical about this graphic novel when I picked it up. I’d been looking for some more female-centric stories and I’ve been a Dungeons and Dragons player practically from the time I was in the womb. The description of this book sounded possibly fun but potentially more character quirks than actual story. I’m definitely glad I took a chance.

Reading Rat Queens is a bit like playing a table top RPG with your best gaming friends. The stakes are serious but the atmosphere is fun. Everyone plays characters that are unique but have aspects of their own personality. The nods to gaming are clear but not heavy handed and they definitely don’t take away from the story. I immediately added the next book to my TBR pile as soon as i finished this one. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun but not overly silly read.
