    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 23, 2010

    There's not a whole lot to say in this issue, as most of it is a history lesson. For those in the know, there's a lot of good information here. For the rest of us, it's nice to see Smith giving props to one of the greats. The moments where we do get to see Rasl go through the actions of stealing yet another Picasso painting are great, and the fact that the entire story - save for a few moments - are told through the narration of the title character are really neat. I wish the issue would be longer, but that has been one of my complaints from the beginning. Rasl will continue to be on my must read list, and once again earns 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    So those are my feelings on the series as a whole. This particular issue? I dig Tesla and I’m interested in some of his crazier notions, so I really liked that he is becoming a larger part of this book. I like the comparisons between he and Frankenstein and the idea of misunderstood geniuses being ostracized by the masses who only see madness and fear the things they don’t understand. And we’re seeing now how his ideas form the basis of the technology that is utilized by our protagonist. There’s not a huge amount of progress in this one, but mostly a lot of backstory. That’s fine too, as this is a tale that needs a bit of explanation. Overall – it’s another fine issue from a fine creator. If you aren’t reading RASL and any of this stuff appeals to you, pick up those collected editions and add it to your pull list. From what Smith has been saying in the letters pages, this book is going to go bi-monthly so it should be easier to k Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jan 25, 2010

    While the main plot progresses a small amount, the strong focus on Tesla does make this issue feel slighter. Smith's art continues to be top-notch, but, hopefully, March's issue moves things forward more with the background material remaining more in the background. Read Full Review
