Rat Queens, Vol. 1

Bad: The plot was detailed and consistent, but not that engaging. Also a little too much "feminism," ie, nihilistic sex and drugs, impiety, and a token lesbian. I didn't mind the grrl power as such, since it makes sense in the satirical fantasy world.

The story works well with the female protagonists.

Good: The art was good and the characters in particular were detailed. The dialogue and style were good. It was somewhat funny, although the humor was of the Gen X snark variety. The jokes were a little worn. The paneling was above average. The story moved quickly, yet with plenty of detail and no confusing bits. The art definitely contributed to the flow of the story.

I'm ranking this above Ms. Marvel. Although I can't say Rat Queens is definitely "Hugo-worthy," it has artistic merit in art and storytelling and good production values. Ms. Marvel is regurgitated dreck with liberal messages and good production values.
