    I like the components of this book, but taken as a whole, it is just sort of so-so. It's about a team of virtual reality gamers playing a mash-up version of laser tag and capture the flag for big bucks in a national tournament. But it is also about their relationships -- friendly and romantic -- within the team and with their rivals. Having lots of diversity and LGBTQ+ elements drew my attention, but none of the characters are particularly complex emotionally, doing little more than ribbing each I like the components of this book, but taken as a whole, it is just sort of so-so.

Having lots of diversity and LGBTQ+ elements drew my attention, but none of the characters are particularly complex emotionally, doing little more than ribbing each other before getting psyched up for the next match. The games were not presented in a very exciting manner, and between the time spent on them and trying to cover the whole ensemble cast, the relationship stuff seemed pretty cursory and perfunctory. The art was nice, and I would be willing to try more work by the writers in the future to see how they develop.

    Take the action of Code Lyoko, girl squad from Skam, and make it 100% queer for new adults— and you get Renegade Rule! This book was so fun. It’s a love letter about being queer and a gamer, about trying to figure shit out in your twenty’s, and about cherishing your friendships. The art style and colors pop on every page, and the dialogue is bursting with wit. If you’re looking for a quick, joyful, queer graphic novel, I can’t recommend Renegade Rule enough! 5/5 stars.

    I really liked this comic! I have nothing to complain besides not being able to read more of it. This comic is about a group of girls competing in a virtual game competition. The characters are super queer and fun. I loved the art style, both the characters and the way the gaming experience is illustrated look great. And I am impressed how much the story conveyed in the limited space the comic has. So I am really hoping that this will be a longer series and that I get to find out what happens next.

    This was cute and queer - I loved the gaming element infused throughout, it totally reminded me of my old days playing Overwatch.

    Almost every film student of the late twentieth/early twenty-first century thinks that just writing about their friends sitting around at their houses having awesome conversations would make for an interesting film. They're almost always wrong. Excruciatingly so. Similarly, this century, more and more media seems to be about playing video games of mmorpgs or fantasy campaigns. But it is super fucken hard to write about playing a game in a way that's interesting to someone who's not involved in pl Almost every film student of the late twentieth/early twenty-first century thinks that just writing about their friends sitting around at their houses having awesome conversations would make for an interesting film. They're almost always wrong. Excruciatingly so. Similarly, this century, more and more media seems to be about playing video games of mmorpgs or fantasy campaigns. But it is super fucken hard to write about playing a game in a way that's interesting to someone who's not involved in playing that same game. Renegade Rules opens with a team playing an mmorpg and just throwing one liners at each other to give the reader some idea of their personalities. And ... it feels like a lot of 80s superhero comics, in that the snappy patter is just going to sound like dated idiocy in just a few years. And while the art in this book is fine, it's not supporting the in-game world experience. If you're just going to go for action flick interaction, you need some astounding artwork to make your audience realize how cool the game is, and it needs to look vastly different from the Real World component of the story. But there's really no difference between the two worlds, and the whole thing just looks a slightly above average webcomic. I just didn't care about any of the characters (again, they have the depth of action movie characters, so I don't think I'm supposed to care very much), and the premise about wanting to be champions at The Nationals tournament just wasn't exciting.

    A highly entertaining read about a group of queer friends who qualify for the fictional Renegade Rule National Video Game Tournament. Amanda Cassidy is the team captain of the Manhattan Mist and has a lot riding on the outcome of the tournament to be able to pay her mother's medical bills. Her teammates and friends are less serious about the game, but are 100% in to support Amanda.

    Absolutely LOVED this. A fun VR gaming competition that feels like a mix of D&D and The Hollow (tv series). The characters themselves are a hilarious and sarcastic band of misfit queers and I love all of them. The flirting was everything and the one liners killed me everytime 《"I don't want to hear about your fucking fanfic!"》 It also doesn't hurt that every single character in this is uber hot. Not 5 stars only because I thought it was too short. I wanted to see more of the other team members back Absolutely LOVED this.

    Renegade Rule is an inclusive and action-packed read, perfect for anyone who loves a good sports movie, with excellent art and smart writing that elevates from a simple story of friendship to a world of possibilities. One of my favorite comic reads of the year! You can read my full review at the Outerhaven. A copy of Renengade Rule was provided in exchange for an honest review.

    I cannot express how much I love this graphic novel! It has something to suit everyone—esports shenanigans, pining from afar, quippy one-liners, and supportive (sometimes snarky) pals. PLUS the underlining queer storyline is so amazing and not overdone or overemphasized, and is depicted as a subplot to the overall story line; which, as a queer gal myself, I enjoyed quite a lot. If I could give this work 10/10 stars I absolutely would, and I would definitely recommend reading it!

    Not only it is a fun, relatable ride, but it’s so inclusive. The best part is it doesn’t feel forced and I love the representation. I didn’t want to put it down and I’m invested in the characters now and want to know more!
