Ferrier and Petraites Take Over 'Rat Queens' Beginning With 'Swamp Romp' One-Shot

 Image Comics is pleased to unveil interior pages from the forthcoming Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp one-shot issue and subsequent Rat Queens #16 issue, both of which will debut the all-new creative team on the series, Ryan Ferrier (Death Orb, Criminy) and Priscilla Petraites (Brilliant Trash). Swamp Romp will hit comic shops in April followed by #16 in June.



Dragons. Monsters. Tricksters. The Rat Queens have seen—and slayed!—it all. But in Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp a dying man of great wealth hires our heroes to exact revenge for the murder of his prized unicorn. Betty, Hannah, Braga, Violet, and Dee are suddenly thrust into a quest that may bring them face-to-face with a mythological creature thought only to exist in bedtime stories. This is Palisade’s urban legend, and it will end with either death or a mass fortune.

Following the one-shot, Ferrier and Petraites will team up with Marco Lesko and take the reins of the ongoing title starting with Rat Queens #16 this June. The issue will kick-off a new story arc called, The Once and Future King: Part One. In the wake of great change, readers witness the Rat Queens as they struggle to reclaim their sisterhood—just as a mysterious force of great vengeance sets its sights on Palisade. For our incorrigible band of adventurers, it’s personal.

Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp one-shot (Diamond Code FEB190045) will be available on Wednesday, April 10.

Rat Queens #16 (Diamond Code APR190175) will be available on Wednesday, June 19.
