    Did you miss the first issue of this series? You shouldn’t have, it was great on its own accord and now this issue is even better. There are so many books out this week, but this one of the great ones. Pick it up and find the first issue as well. The story and art are perfectly balanced to give one of the most enjoyable reading experiences any comic fan can have. Read Full Review

    With two issues down, the progression of this series is beginning to take shape. While this direction isn't always entirely clear, it's definitely a fun trip thus far. Roy is an interesting character that is sure to translate well into film, and the rest of the cast, while not all that developed, still do a solid job of complimenting him. Tony Parker does a great job on artwork once again, creating a rugged, painted style that is both true to the Dark Horse style and all his own at once. With two to go on this series, hopes are high that this will come to an exciting (and quick) conclusion. Read Full Review

    Barlow is doing a terrific job re-establishing Peter Lenkovs world, and giving readers a chance to go deeper into the R.I.P.D.s history. His vision of this warped and anachronistic old west is nothing but creative, and his quick-paced narrative only adds to the excitement of the issue. I have high hopes for the issue #3.

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Dec 23, 2012

    And artistically, the book remains great. Tony Parkers style, just enough cartoon and just enough detail, can and does take on everything. The style isnt cartoonish, per se, but characters drawn in his style look like live action versions of cartoon characters without looking too silly. Michelle Madsens colours only add to the experience, moving from mood to mood in ways that make sense and are almost rendered invisible (in the best way possible). Read Full Review
