Image’s string of sell outs continues, even though the thought process was they were going to over print books to avoid it. Still, could be good for speculators.

Image/Shadowline is pleased to announce that in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand, RAT QUEENS #1 written by Kurtis Wiebe with art by Owen Gieni is being rushed back to print. The RAT QUEENS #1, 2nd printing and RAT QUEENS #2 of the highly anticipated reboot of the New York Times bestselling series will hit stores on Wednesday, April 12th.

The RAT QUEENS reboot begins with “CAT KINGS AND OTHER GARYS,” Part One. The Rat Queens are back! Betty, Violet, Dee, Braga, and Hannah return! Palisade is still a rat-infested troll’s ass, and everyone still hates Gary. It’s been awhile since the Queens have done a good slaughter, so join them as they get back to the basics of killing monsters and drinking away the profits!

Fans won’t want to miss out on this brawling, foul-mouthed fun with a fresh artistic spin and new adventures on the horizon.

The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers for RAT QUEENS, VOL. 2 #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code JAN178754), RAT QUEENS, VOL. 2 #2 Cover A by Gieni (Diamond Code FEB170671), and Cover B (Diamond Code JAN178755) is Monday, March 20th.

    I had been waiting on this one for a while. I picked up issue 1 reg cover and the variant. I missed the Rat Queens. And the Art work ain’t that bad.

      The new cover will be the “B” cover with the severed rat head, however this one will have the logo on the front.

    Customer demand.. muahahaha.. My local shop had a huge stack of these. I’m sure half is still there. I think Image is playing the Marvel games now with the 2nd and 3rd prints.

    I’ll pass.. Wiebe will just end up Wiebing this title again.. he ruined Rat Queens, it had so much potential too.
