This year, Image Comics asked, "WHAT'S NEXT?" and answered that question with a bevy of new releases that went on to instant sell-outs, week after week. This week is no different, as RAT QUEENS, a series that mixes high fantasy with short tempers and a party-centric lifestyle, has sold out at the distributor level and will be going back to press for a second printing.
RAT QUEENS #1, written by Kurtis Wiebe with art by Roc Upchurch, has debuted to thunderous applause. The response from fans, press, and fellow creators has been overwhelming. Fans and creators took to social media to spread word of the intensely relatable humor and high level of craft on display in RAT QUEENS, and the press did their part with a number of glowing reviews.
RAT QUEENS #1 may still be available at comic book stores and is available digitally on the Image Website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, and Android.
The second printing of RAT QUEENS #1 arrives 10/23, can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code AUG138285, and features a cover by Riley Rossmo (DRUMHELLAR, DEBRIS).
RAT QUEENS #2 releases on 10/23 and features two covers by Roc Upchurch. Cover A can be pre-ordered now using Diamond Code AUG130707, and Cover B can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code AUG130708.
