  • Variant Edition Comics & Culture 10441 123 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5N 1N8 Canada (map)

Book club is back! 

We're talking about the badass RAT QUEENS comic and some great fantasy genre Web Comics Sunday March 13th, 3pm, at Variant Edition (10441 123 Street).

Rat Queens: Volume 1 Sass and Sorcery
Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit. It’s also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack! - Seemore at: https://imagecomics.com/comics/releases/rat-queens-vol.-1-sass-and-sorcery-tp#sthash.4Qz2tDlj.dpuf

Gunnerkrig Court (webcomic)

The comic tells the story of Antimony Carver, a young girl who has just started attending a strange and mysterious school called Gunnerkrigg Court, and the events that unfold around her as she becomes embroiled in political intrigues between Gunnerkrigg Court and the inhabitants of the Gillitie Wood, a forest outside the school. The comic's style and themes include elements from science, fantasy creatures, mythology from a variety of traditions, and alchemical symbols and theories; the literary style is heavily influenced by mystery and manga comics.

Agents of the Realm (webcomic)

Shortly after beginning their first year of college at Silvermount University, Five young women discover that they’ve each been chosen to help protect not just our world, but a newly discovered sister dimension as well. As they venture forward through their college years their lives start to take on forms of their own, providing them with new opportunities to learn just how much power they have over them.
Agents of the Realm is a College years coming of age story, taking influence from a number of timeless Magical Girl themed stories.
