    I have to be honest I didn't think I would enjoy this book half as much as I did. Even the beginning few pages didn't spark my interest. But once the girls showed up it became a hoot. It's funny, it's really funny. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Allen Wiggs Aug 12, 2015

    Rat Queens remains one of the best comic books being published today. Its unique and awesome characters shine in every issue. Even when it deals with tropes we have seen before it approaches them in a new way. It is unpredictable and fun and while this is the eleventh issue a new reader could try it and decide if they like it or not. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Jonny Stone Aug 20, 2015

    Rat Queens continues to be a superbly executed series: with brilliant dialogue and illustration, characters that are hugely likeable and complex and much emotional resonance, Rat Queens is as close to perfect as comic books get. Read Full Review

    I’m glad that Rat Queens is back with #11. This new arc will definitely have adventures, chaos, magic, and that classic mix of humor and profanity. Stay tuned for issue #12 in September! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Whitney Syphax-Walker Aug 20, 2015

    Issue #11 begins in the middle of a plotthat readers are clueless about. It wasn't my favorite thing, mostly because I felt like I missed an issue somewhere. I won't lie, I had to flip back to page one and start over once or twice. Once it finally clicked that we weren't following the fairly structured formula I'd become accustomed to, I was golden. Weibe once again proves himself proficient in both writing and pacing, and thrusts the reader into that familiar clever quip/all-out-brawl combo we've come to know and love by the third page. When we finally see our Queens (who have been captured by a gaggle of hungry goblins with pretty decent culinary skills) again we're already sucked in and gladly giving them the attention this series rightfully deserves.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 19, 2015

    The usual balance of action, humor, and small personal moments is still what makes Rat Queens a fun series. We have a new art team, though the story structure remains the same which is important going into the third volume. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho Aug 21, 2015

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Aug 20, 2015

    It's good to have Rat Queens back and any doubts about the art are quickly hushed. There are minor inconsistencies but these can all be easily overlooked. Hopefully Tess Fowler will be able to stick around for a while, because this style marks the return of the Rat Queens looking fun again. This isn't the strongest issue of the series, but it's a solid reminder that one of the best comics Image has to offer is back and here to stay. Read Full Review

    Overall a good issue, if somewhat slow as it serves to set up the conflict at the University as well as Betty's capture. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Aug 24, 2015

    Altogether, I'm delighted to have "Rat Queens" back in issue #11. Despite a wobbly introduction, the new arc promises all that I've come to love about the series: camaraderie, magic, mayhem and foul-mouthed fun. I can't wait for September's issue. Read Full Review
