    If youre still with me, great. Because this is an intricate, detailed, and compelling story. There is a sense of where the tale is going, but only insofar as it abides by the twisted rules of these Gothic, otherworldly tales. This is one to stay with all the way to its mind-warping conclusion. Read Full Review

    Rat God #2 provides a few more answers and many more questions to the unraveling mystery at hand. Although the writing isn't too bad, Corben's artwork is what continues to carry the title. I look forward to seeing where the story leads, although the main character isn't nearly as interesting as the fascinating visuals. Worth a look just like the first issue. Read Full Review

    Finally: is the series getting better or worse?It's getting better as we slowly watch Elwood lose his grip on notions of purity and self, and again, as the Lovecraftian elements begin to surface. Honestly, as I'm reading the book, much of my enjoyment is in Corben's grotesque/beautiful art, and I really can't wait for him to unleash with the tentacles and half-humans. Issue #2 ofRat God brings us closer to that point, but I have to include a heavy disclaimer–this series is basically only for dyed-in-the-wool fans of the genre, of old terrors and rotten mythologies. Otherwise, much of this can feel like dated storytelling and hackneyed elements to non-believers. Read Full Review

    A bit of an improvement from Issue 1, but still has given us no more answers as to the most important questions from last issue. With the added question now of the big secret behind Lame Dog. Read Full Review
