    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Nov 8, 2017

    In Ragman (2017-) #2, writer Ray Fawkes provides the reader with some added insight into not only Rory's life, but also into the myth/legend surrounding Ragman. With only four issues remaining in this run, Fawkes is making excellent use of his time; we're moving full-speed ahead. Read Full Review

    Worth the buy, as Fawkes and Miranda are at the top of their game, and Ragman is a hero we all need to know. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Nov 4, 2018

    What I dislike the most is the lack of patches that used to make up Ragmans costume. It lacks the patchwork feel and makes him look more like a mommy fighting with drapes than random pieces of fabric. His old costume made him unique. This design makes him look generic. The patches could be coloured with multiple colours, although a mix of greens, browns and beiges was usually used. This costume lack personality. Personality is not lacking in the execution of the rest of the comics artwork. As the series has already ended, my commentary may be useless and too late. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 8, 2017

    Ragman #2 (of 6) continues to introduce this “new” character into the DCU. Things are getting more heated as demons and other creatures are after Rory; he is going to have to learn how to use his newfound power quickly before it gets taken away from him. This series has definitelybeen new-reader-friendly. Fawkes does a great job of keeping you interested in the story and wanting to come back to learn more about this “hero”. While the art is not bad, it could use a little refining in the story-telling department, but that does not mean some scenes are not well done and a lot of fun to look at. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Xavier Mendoza Nov 16, 2017

    So far, Ray Fawkes' Ragman leaves a lot to be desired in terms of character. The surreal visual storytelling, the abstract and mystical tone, and the fast-paced and frantic action scenes are all stunningly told through Inaki Miranda's dynamic art and Eva De La Cruz's flavorful color style. Yet, both are in service of a rather hectic plot that struggles to find time to really build Rory as a character. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 8, 2017

    This comic book covers a very interesting topic that needs more exposure, but the narrative barely advances at all. The art team is putting out some very interesting layouts and expert design, which could be worth the cover price alone. This issue will play better for the trade collection. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Nov 9, 2017

    While the first half continues the trend of last issue, the second half quickly sinks the issue. Im not high on this book right now, but I see potential in this team and have confidence that they can right the ship. Read Full Review
