The items of interest of Kurtis J. Wiebe, writer of Rat Queens and Peter Panzerfaust



Had to post this fight in its entirety because it’s wizard as fuck

Rat Queens #7
by Kurtis Wiebe and Roc Upchurch

Favourite fight sequence since Hannah’s NercoHulkOut


So for the last four months or so, I have taken part in the body positivity movement on Instagram, including posting photos of myself in my bikini and underwear/bra. Keep in mind that none of my photos have ever been sexually explicit or suggestive and that I have always been fully covered. As far…

Little bit of horseshit. Just a little.


What do the above pictures have in common? They are all from one of our newly minted favorite comics of all time… Rat Queens

For Virtual ComicCon 2014 we got to “sit down” with author Kurtis Wiebe and ask some truly important questions.

OS: Should chocolate chip cookies be chewy or crispy?

Kurtis: Chewed up and in my belly.

OS: How do you respond to complaints that entertainment is becoming to “politically correct” and that under-represented persons just want to make everything about them? (Assume the person complaining isn’t trolling.)

Kurtis: Probably about time under represented people have everything made about them. Might be a nice change. 

OS:What piece of entertainment do you believe that every person should experience?

Kurtis: Kissing a bearded man. Goes for both sexes, gay or straight.

OS: Would you like to talk about any awesome projects you have coming up?

Kurtis: Rat Queens and Peter Panzerfaust are on my docket full time. I do always have other projects in the background, one is a sci-fi psychological horror and the other an Asian martial arts revenge story. Love to talk about them. Can’t yet.

OS: Jet boots or a fully autonomous robotic pastry chef?

Kurtis: Robot pastry chef WITH Jet Boots. He can cook me delicious croissants and show me the world. I’ll sing the Aladdin part.


And there you have it, right from his fingers to your eyes.

If you like strong ladies, fantasy, blue birds, and representation, then you should check out Rat Queens. 

If you want Rat Queens clothing, you can get that in their online shop.

You can follow Kurtis on Tumblr and Twitter too.

Just sending some love for Rat Queens! I bought the comic on a whim and now they can't come out fast enough!

Thanks for the love!

I just wanted to say thank you! It was so wonderful to see my piece in the back of the comic. Such a thing made my day! You all have become such a wonderful inspiration for me. You have done such a wonderful job at Rat Queens, and I hope all continues to go well with the comic so that I can carry on drawing more from them! Hopefully one day I will get there and be up there to drawing my own comics!

Keep drawing. Learn from your mistakes. Draw more!

Would you be up for answering 5 fairly silly questions for our Virtual ComicCon this week?
