PORTLAND, OR, 04/26/2018 — Fans will experience a cyberpunk take on the RAT QUEENS by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Will Kirkby from Image/Shadowline this July in an electrically thrilling one-shot, RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: NEON STATIC.
“This one shot is an opportunity to take the Rat Queens to a space that we've never been before,” said Wiebe. “With Will Kirkby, the Neon Static issue is unlike anything we've ever done before, and his artistic style is the perfect opportunity to experiment with any wild ideas that come to mind. It's all the personality you'd expect in a setting you'd never expect. Cyberpunk sass and sorcery.”
Readers will need to strap themselves in for a ride to an alternate and futuristic world, where the Rat Queens take to the neon streets of Palisade as an elite team of shadow operatives. An anonymous fiend creeps through the dark web, stealing identities and blackmailing innocent civilians for cold, hard Goldyen—and only the Queens can stop him!
RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: NEON STATIC one-shot (Diamond Code MAY180047) hits stores on Wednesday, July 18th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, June 25th.
