Over at Variety, it is being reported  that Weta Workshop's Pukeko Pictures has joined with Heavy Metal  to turn the Image Comics series "Rat Queens" into an animated television series. To get the pitch ready for TV, Pukeko and Heavy Metal will develop it as 30-minute pilot TV show for potential networks.
"Rat Queens" is set in a fantasy word focusing on the adventures of elven mage Hannah, dwarf warrior Violet, hipster thief Betty and a human named Dee. Written by Kurtis Wiebe with art by Roc Upchurch, Image describes the title as “a series that mixes high fantasy with short tempers and a party-centric lifestyle”.

John Krelitz at Heavy Metal has described the hit title as:
‘Rat Queens’ is a standout in the marketplace as a diving rod for fangirls, a market as yet untouched by most comics publishers. It is not only perfect for the TV space, but much needed.

As more information becomes known about this new venture, we will follow up to bring the news to you.
