Stjepan Sejic will be joining the Eisner-nominated Rat Queens team as its new artist for issues 9-11, Image Comics announced today. The news comes after former artist and co-creator Roc Upchurch left the book following an arrest for domestic violence.
Sejic is known for his work on Sunstone and Top Cow’s Witchblade series. Rat Queens writer Kurtis Wiebe said that he is “excited to have Stjepan bring the Rat Queens to life in his distinctive style, a voice that understands both the heart and the humor of Hannah, Dee, Betty and Violet. The future of the series is brighter than ever and we’re looking forward to getting new issues out to fans.”
Seijic’s first issue will hit shelves on Feb. 25. RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: BRAGA #1 featuring guest artist Tess Fowler will be released Jan. 14.
