In volume 2, the Rat Queens find that the township of Palisade is actually grateful to them for once since they stood up and heroically defended it (against a threat that they brought to the town themselves, but there's no sense in dwelling too much on the past). They even get paid. Things are looking up, until Sawyer, the head of the town watch and Hannah's sometime lover, goes missing, and a great evil threatens more than just the town.

Volume two gives some back story for Violet, Hannah and Dee, though very little about Betty so far. I particularly enjoyed Violet's flashback, in which you get to see her (complete with a full beard) coming to decide she's done with trying to live up to her family's expectations. There's still a good deal of violence, and also a fair bit of implied sex. The art continues to be excellent and the dialogue is as vulgar and funny as ever.

It was great to see the Rat Queens back kicking arse and taking names, along with Braga and the four Daves. I will definitely be sticking with this series to see what they come up with next.

I read that book too, and let me tell you - some of the sex in it is far from 'implied'! The violence is also fairly graphic. If you don't like boobs and blood all over the place (because, y'know, you hate fun), this really isn't for you!
Ah, I forgot about that one scene with Sawyer and Hannah.
