Kurtis J. Wiebe is one of the most prolific writers working under the Image Comics banner. He first sprang onto the scene with "Green Wake" (one of my favorite series of the past few years) and "The Intrepids" and followed those up with "Debris," "Grim Leaper" and "Peter Panzerfaust." At the recent C2E2 in Chicago, Wiebe showed off his latest (with Meg Dejmal and John “Roc” Upchurch), the fantasy/action/comedy series "Rat Queens." Think of "Rat Queens" as a smash-up of early, punky, profane Peter Jackson and later, epic, "LoTR" lord Peter Jackson.
I chatted with Wiebe through email about who these "Rat Queens" are, the inspiration for the series, working in the fantasy genre, and more.
