Rat Queens Being Developed As Animated TV Series

Another day, another comic book property picked up to be developed for the screen. This time, the comic is Rat Queens, from Image, and the format is animated television.

Variety reports Weta Workshop’s Pukeko Pictures is pairing up with Heavy Metal to adapt Rat Queens into a 30 minute animated format before shopping it to networks.

Here’s the description of the dark comedy:

revolves around beer-guzzling maidens — Hannah the Rockabilly elven mage, Violet the hipster dwarven fighter, Dee the atheist human cleric and Betty the hippy smidgen thief — who are hired to kill monsters and other beasts.

Kurtis Weibe and Roc Upchurch created the comics. Weibe’s other Image series Peter Panzerfaust is also in active development for TV, and is set up at BBC Worldwide.
