Kurtis Wiebe Puts Rat Queens Comic On Hiatus

Co-creator of the comic book Rat Queens, Kurtis Wiebe, has announced that he is putting the Image Comics title on hold.



Bleeding Cool reader will know that the comic has had a rough publishing history, but it was very influential in the industry in proving the existence of an often otherwise ignored fanbase for a female-focused comic that remained outrageous and challenging, alongside the likes of Saga and Sex Criminals.

The news came as quite a surprise to his peers…

Rat Queens #16 was published a couple of weeks ago but Rat Queens #17 was intended to be published in June.
