    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Nov 14, 2003

    Ruse reads like a big budget Ed Wood film. Paul Ryan's art guests, and once again he proves to be a wise choice for rendering the panels. Ryan's artwork follows the tradition of comic book anatomy established by such men as Hal Foster, Burne Hogarth and Alex Raymond. He walks the footfalls of great artists such as Dick Dillin and Jim Aparo who really do not get the recognition they deserve thanks to the flavors of the month. As a result, his artwork helps create the dead pan delivery needed for such a contrasting stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid plot filled with cheesy characters. Had say a Harvey Kurtzman type of artist illustrated the proceedings, the story would have been more slapstick-oriented rather than an earnest disaster. This stand-alone issue of Ruse earns my highest recommendation, and just what is with that funky lettering? Read Full Review
