    With the same attitude, a new look and some serious weapons, we have the Rat Queens dispatching digital desperadoes with all the aplomb as ever. A little different take, but a fun quick read that is recognizable enough, if only in tone. Slightly punk, but all in good fun, this is a light, and entertaining departure. Read Full Review

I recommend fans of the Rat Queens to definitely give this one-shot a go, and I also believe that lovers of sci-fi will enjoy this one also. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden Jul 25, 2018

    For fans of Rat Queens, Neon Static is a welcome reprieve from the drama-filled, plot-heavy character development abundant in recent issues. A lighthearted romp, Neon Static is a fanciful one-off campaign that should give long time fans a memorable adventure. Read Full Review

    The result is mostly a lot of fun. Kurtis Wiebe is able to maintain these characters' voices across genre and William Kirkby's use of jagged lines and fluorescent color gradients sells the setting, though there are a least a few panels where it gets a bit simple, to the point that it seems unintentionally comical.
