    Orc Dave is given well-deserved life and depth in a tale full of sadness and wonder. He is a true hero when one ought not to mistake kindness for weakness. This is a terrific addition to the continuing story of our beloved Rat Queens. Read Full Review

    Rat Queens Special: Orc Dave #1 leaves you wanting more Dave. Hopefully this is a point to make the statement that he is still there and we will get around to rescuing Dave from the hole he has found himself in. This story had heart, and it is as genuine as you can get when other characters wish they had this kind of connection with a family member. Read Full Review

    With that in mind, Rat Queens Special Orc Dave #1 is still an excellent read, and certainly, should be picked up by any fan of high-concept fantasy. As I said, it's sweet, and there's pretty much nothing wrong with it. If you're a Rat Queens' fan or just starting the series like me, this one-shot is certainly worth the price tag.
