    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 9, 2019

    Have no fear, the Rat Queens are in good hands with the new creative team. Swamp Romp is as bawdy, irreverent and action packed as ever, and no matter the vileness of the monster, or the severity of the hangover, the Queens will prevail. Read Full Review

    Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp was a hilarious issue, and absolutely worth the read. It probably shouldn't be read by new fans though, as a lot of it might not make sense. Then again, the Rat Queens don't always need to make sense, do they? Though unicorn fans might want to consider avoiding this issue"(again, look at the cover). Read Full Review

    Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp is both a great sales pitch for the new creators whoare poised take over the main series, and a great example of why a good one-shot is one of the most satisfying reads you can get.

Packed with the everything we love about the Rat Queens, with spot-on characterization and a shining art team, this special delivers a simple, enjoyable tale every RQ fan is sure to love.
