I’m sorry, what? A tv show based on the coolest comic I’ve read in ages?
Fangirls, I really don’t know how to feel about this announcement from the amazing team behind Image Comics’ Rat Queens. Pukeko Pictures will be working with the Rat Queens team and the Heavy Metal team to create a 30 minute animated show based off of the comic.
One on hand, YES. Give me another way to love the Rat Queens! Show this beautiful creation to new audiences, and let them love it with me. Please. I want to enjoy it with others, of course. I want the best for these amazing creators and their lovely story. But…
What if they hurt it? What if they make it bad? Roc Upchurch’s art is so freaking perfect and lends so well to the story, and it’s what I want to keep them together! There are so many ways it could be ruined, and I’m scared.
I’m going to keep stressing about that until the next Rat Queens comes out (it’s late because of conventions and life). How do you feel about comic-to-cartoon and book-to-movie transformations?
