Rat Queens, “Panzerfaust” Coming To TV

Weta Workshop’s Pukeko Pictures is pairing up with Heavy Metal to adapt the Image Comics title “Rat Queens” into a half-hour animated TV series.

The dark comedy revolves around four beer-guzzling maidens who are hired to kill monsters and other beasts. The quartet include a rockabilly elven mage, a hipster dwarven fighter, an atheist human cleric and a hippy smidgen thief.

Meanwhile, BBC Worldwide and Heavy Metal are adapting another Image Comics title into a TV series, “Peter Panzerfaust,” with the pilot penned by “Life on Mars” creators Matthew Graham and Ashley Pharaoh.
