I'll admit it, Rasl came in under my radar this week. I just happened to see it on the shelf and decided to give it a shot. I'm glad I did, too. The premise, while nothing new, is engaging and it gives way to a lot of curiosity (not to mention a bevy possibilities). Smith's art is sharp and clean, while not being overly cartoony in style. My only reservation is that the issue reads very quickly. Don't get me wrong here, it's not decompressed at all. Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with a book paced this quickly, but having to wait until May 2008 for the next issue is madness! Read Full Review
Generally I enjoyed this first issue, and I'm eager for the next one. Therein lies the main problem. Smith has already admitted the series won't be sticking to a very constant or consistent shipping schedule. Given how little storyline this issue offers, I can't help but recommend most readers wait for the trade. I'm sure this story will read quite well in the eventual RASL: One Volume Edition, but individually this issue is just doesn't offer enough bang for the buck. Read Full Review
