If you haven’t heard by now then where hell have you been? Okay you may not be a comic person or not up on all the news happening in the world of comics (truth be told, who the hell can. Me included). Image and Shadowline are in my opinion lucky as hell to be getting Stjepan Sejic to start drawing Rat Queens. But it only looks like it will be for only issues 9-11. Now that is some sad news. Love to see his work on this book for at least 12 issues. You can see his work most recently on “Death Vigil” for Image and Top Cow.
Shadowline’s New York Times bestselling high fantasy series RAT QUEENS written by Kurtis J. Wiebe will welcome a new artist: Stjepan Sejic of the #1 Amazon bestseller SUNSTONE for issues 9-11.
The RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: BRAGA #1 will feature guest artist Tess Fowler and release on January 14. Sejic’s art will premiere in the following issue, RAT QUEENS #9, on February 25. The series will be monthly with #12 soliciting for a May release.
“Having admired Stjepan’s work at Top Cow for some time now I’m extremely excited about his coming on board to Rat Queens,” said Jim Valentino, Vice President of Image Comics. “He will usher in an exciting new era for one of our most popular titles.”
Wiebe added: “I’m excited to have Stjepan bring the Rat Queens to life in his distinctive style, a voice that understands both the heart and the humor of Hannah, Dee, Betty and Violet. The future of the series is brighter than ever and we’re looking forward to getting new issues out to fans.”
