RAT QUEENS Animated TV Series On The Way
Weta Workshop’s Pukeko Pictures and Heavy Metal are joining forces to animate Image Comics’ Rat Queens into an animated tv series. Swords, magic, mead and women who kick ass!
Nominated for the 2014 Eisner Award for Best New Series, Rat Queens is an Image Comics series from writer Kurtis J. Wiebe and artist Roc Upchurch which follows an all-female party of adventurers consisting of "Hannah the Rockabilly elven mage, Violet the hipster dwarven fighter, Dee the atheist human cleric and Betty the hippy smidgen thief — who are hired to kill monsters and other beasts." Said Heavy Metal CEO Jeff Krelitz, "‘Rat Queens’ is a standout in the marketplace as a diving rod for fangirls, a market as yet untouched by most comics publishers. It is not only perfect for the TV space, but much needed." Once Heavy Metal and Weta settle on a tone and style, they'll pitch the series to network as a 30-minute program.
