Rat Queens returns, Image nowhere to be seen
No, there's not just one Rat Queens webcomic coming out. I've got quite a few planned. This one with @themikenorton!
Rat Queens is one of those comics that (say it with me) I've been meaning to catch up on for a while, but just haven't yet.
The reason that I'm talking about it isn't about the comic itself. It's about what Kurtis Wiebe is doing here. One of the main reasons that creators love to work with Image and a number of the smaller publishers is that they own the comics that they create, and this is an interesting consequence of that. It looks like Rat Queens is going to continue on, completely independent of Image, which is only possible because the publisher does not own the rights, so if ho wants to take it elsewhere, there's nothing stopping hum.
It's a fun little reminder of what creator owned can potentially mean.
