“GOLD, GUTS AND GROG,” Part Three One tablespoon of cayenne peppers, 2 ounces of 100 proof vodka, and 3 ounces of tomato juice makes one fantastic Bloody Murder. So does double-crossing the Rat Queens and foolishly thinking you can get away with it. Drink up![/quote]

Well, Palisade has seen better days. It stinks like orc blood. There are bits of troll all over the place. Worst of all, the famous booze ship, Drowned Sorrows, sank to the bottom of the harbor in the attack. This era of Palisade will forever be known as THE DRY SPELL.[/quote]

[quote=“Kurtis J. Wiebe”]Shannon is continuing to expand the Rat Queens merch brand. She’s got new designs and styles coming. She’s also planning the first shirt for men. I think a lot of male fans thought we were actively ignoring their requests for merch. The fact was we actually started off with a shirt for both men and women through Image and when we announced it there was a strong response from women asking for shirts that fit their bodies better.

Shannon saw that response and took it on herself to meet that demand. Thing is, there’s so much out there for the male comic audience already. There isn’t the struggle to find a comfortable shirt for something they really love.[/quote]

Le dessinateur Roc Upchurch ne dessinera plus la série Rat Queens (qui suit quatre héroïnes turbulentes dans un monde d’Heroic Fantasy) suite à son arrestation pour violence conjugale.

Son son blog, l’auteur Kurtis J. Wiebe déclare qu’il n’est: “pas en colère au sujet de cette révélation mais profondément attristé. Quand on travaille avec quelqu’un si intensément sur un projet si personnel, vous êtes bien plus que des collaborateurs, vous êtes des amis proches qui se sentent comme des frères. J’ai beaucoup d’amour pour Roc Upchurch, j’ai passé beaucoup de temps avec lui pendant les conventions et plus calmement lors de diners quand la foule s’en était allée. Shannon et moi avons rencontré sa femme que nous admirons grandement. Malgré tout ce qui est arrivé, je me soucie et j’apprécie Roc et mon seul espoir est que cette famille trouve de l’aide et la guérison en son sein.
