    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Aug 17, 2017

    I started this review comparing Rat Queens to I Hate Fairyland, but won't end by picking sides because we live in a world where both exists. That's pretty rad, right? Two awesome, hilarious fantasy books ripe for the reading! Read Full Review

    After the events of Rat Queens #5, this book has quickly become a must read for all your fantasy needs. All anyone has to do when writing a fantasy story is tap into their true creative well, and I do think this creative team has done so marvelously. Nothing about this dungeon or where it took the Queens felt like anywhere I have been before and I have played my fair share of games in this realm. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Aug 16, 2017

    This issue like every issue before was fun and full of adventure. A nice bonus was some back story told for each of our queens via the mirror of regret. Very cool to get some insight to each characters inner psyche. And, as usual always great humor mixed into the serious plot points and adventure. Pick up this issue in your local comic store.

    The "Rat Queens" feel like they're back, maybe not the storytelling triumph of other late sequel franchise starters but if you were a fan and wanted more of the "Rat Queens" you remember this is pretty much it. Read Full Review
