Interview: Wiebe and Fowler's 'Rat Queens' Take a Critical Hit
Since it first started at Image, the R-rated RPG-themed series Rat Queens has proven to be a fan-favorite book, sparking cosplay, fanfic, and all kinds of devotion from the readership. The third arc for the fantasy series comes to a close this week with issue #15, which does some hugely shocking things to the characters. This is a game-changing issue from writer Kurtis J. Wiebe and artist Tess Fowler, changing the story --- and the cast --- in ways nobody could have expected. The issue comes after a slightly troubled production period for the book, which has only just settled down for the ongoing creative team recently. Fowler is now ongoing artist for the foreseeable future, joining colorist Tamra Bonvillain as the book head into the fourth storyline later this year. ComicsAlliance sat down with Wiebe and Fowler to talk about how they formed a creative partnership, what's been going on over the last few issues, and where things are going next. It's going to get a little rough for our heroes...
