Sad news for fans of the Image Comics series, Rat Queens, creator Kurtis Wiebe has announced the series is going on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time.

The announcement came through Mr. Wiebe’s Twitter account over the weekend.

Rat Queens #16 arrives on store shelves a couple of weeks ago, and unless issue #17 has already arrived at the printers, it looks like that issue will be the last one for a long, long time.

No information was given as to why the series was going on hiatus, and hopefully it has nothing to do with the legal issues of series co-creator Roc Upchurch.

  1. Drat. I really only found Rat Queens this year. I got this really nice deluxe edition collection. The book was super stellar, and I was intending to put it on my pull list as soon as I caught up. Never mind then.
