The game will launch on July 13th.
They have a "stretch goal" of 4000 subscribers to the pre-launch page. The bonus are alternative art for the player board based on the Cyberpunk-inspired one-shot issue. I remember that I had a very hard time to finish it even though it's just a few pages, so I'm not particularly excited with this.
Kickstarter pre-launch page is live. Although I have always considered these pre-launch pages to be a bit useless...
Official title, per Deep Water Games:
The cover you've shown is the cover of Issue #16 of the first run, which is the one and only issue that I haven't read because it didn't get collected (it's actually considered non-canon).
The basic Rat Queens are Hannah, the Elf Mage (not shown on the cover), Dee, the practicer of dark arts (rightmost character), Violet, the Dwarf warrior (the bearded one), and Betty, the Halfling Rogue (hanging on the shoulders of Braga). Later on (that is, from the beginning of the second run) they are joined by Braga, the Orc Barbarian. The leftmost character is, I think, Tizzie, a secondary character that doesn't play a great role in the series.
So, yes, it's always the same bunch of characters, most of them being shown of this cover. The characters are the heart and focus of the series. It's a series about the Rat Queens, not about a specific Fantasy world or whatever world-shattering events.
That's a coincidence, for sure, and U B welcome, Z. Are the Rat Queens always the same characters, as seen below, or do the differ from story to story?

I'm in shock.
Rat Queens is my favorite comic series.
I just wrote review of Volume 4 this morning on BGG.
Best KS news of the year.
I thank you many many many times.
Added to our forthcoming games list.
