'Rat Queens, Vol 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N'rygoth' is my first foray into the world of the Rat Queens. It collects issues 6-10 of the series, but you should really start at the beginning.
The book starts with the aftermath of previous adventures, and the Queens are enjoying various night time activities. They get called in to the town magistrates office and rewarded for past and future work on behalf of the town of Palisade. All this peace and wealth isn't bound to last though. Before long something evil has been called forth to take over the town, and the Rat Queens find themselves caught up in saving a town that may not appreciate them all that much. The manifestation of these beings causes the Queens to have strange flashbacks, which probably helps to fill in character backstory. More than one character has to come to terms with their past.
The story kind of jumps around, which I found a bit confusing. I would recommend starting with Volume 1, as there is some necessary backstory that you'd probably appreciate having. I'd also advise that the content falls into probably more of an R rating if we were using movie ratings. I still enjoyed it though and look forward to reading more.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
