    This is an excellent supernatural story that's kicked up a notch in this latest installment. If you haven't jumped on board yet, dammit do so now! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Dec 16, 2017

    In my opinion, there's no such thing as a perfect issue but Ragman number 3 is about as close as you can get for me, this series is, in my opinion, a can't miss for new fans of the character or old fans looking for a new read. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Dec 23, 2017

    With a fantastic second half and Inaki Miranda's consistently excellent art, RAGMAN #3 continues the tradition of potent storytelling and characterization. However, issues of pacing and a bland villain keeps this issue from perfection. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 13, 2017

    A fast-paced action-packed romp through Gotham City and Rory's psyche--at the same time! A couple of guest-appearances and the introduction of a good, though evil, villain are well-stirred into the fray. The last issue was more of a dud, but this one has me excited. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 19, 2017

    Ragman does some fun stuff here overall and I'm particularly pleased with the Batwoman appearance and the potential for what Etrigan represents. Rory's still pretty much operating as a newbie here with minimal understanding of his abilities and even those within still learning some of the basics, though they're a bit closer to it for obvious reasons. The main fight that gets underway gives us an opponent that has a little more connection for Rory to work with and I like that everyone tries to just talk their way out of it first. But I also just cannot get over how gorgeous this book is. Miranda's artwork is spectacular in just about ever panel with some great lines and a sense of motion combined with the detail that really draws me into it in a big way. And that's before Eva de la Cruz elevates the thing as a whole with some rich coloring that through the digital side is just gorgeous. It's a great book simply to look at even if the story was mediocre, which it isn't. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 13, 2017

    Ragman #3 is the best issue of this mini-series so far. While the other issues were not bad, they felt like they were lacking a little something in them. In Ragman #3, it seems like the creative team has really gotten a hold of this story and characters, and things are starting to come together. Etrigan the Demon fits perfectly in this world and in this storyline, and he is a welcome addition to the story adding some intriguing plot points that have me very interested in what exactly his motives are. Ragman is turning into a very interesting six issue mini-series and definitely has me on board until the end! Read Full Review

    Worth the buy, as this creative team has made this hero an even more interesting character than he was on Arrow. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Xavier Mendoza Dec 16, 2017

    The issue continues from the previous ones in hurried pace, lack of character building, and impartial tone. The art is wonderful and the connections to the larger DC universe are much appreciated, but the story lacks a central character to tie it all together. I hope that future issues can pick up the pieces and tell something more memorable, but it seems unlikely. Read Full Review

    I know Ragman has a very small, very loyal following. I just wish those fans could be excited about what this book is. Read Full Review

    This isn't the total dud that Deadman's new series is, but it's the most forgettable. Read Full Review

    It's sad this will only be a 6 issue run, as Ragman story starts to entwined more so with the DCU. Leaves me very much wanting more.

    The bad who Dec 14, 2017

    Definitely the best issue yet with lots of action and revelations. A new mysterious character makes his debut also and it's not yet clear what his intentions are. Rory looks more and more in control of his abilities and a nice cameo peppers the whole thing, making it clearer in the universe this all takes place. A cool little series that will probably be over in time before it loses its momentum. The 2.99 price point is nice and you can keep on buying them if you started it already, but you could easily wait for the trade and be satifsfied. No necessary story element to make it imprative to follow week to week.

    Loving this series, and to have Etrigan introduced is very intriguing moving forward. Fawkes is and excellent writer, and doing Ragman the justice he deserves, because Ragman/Rory are awesome characters and Fawkes is doing his usual, amazing writing. The art by Inaki Miranda is gorgeous art. Wish this was a 8 or even a maxi 12 issue book. Anyway just my opinion and review, and for this issue I give it a solid 9 out of 10...

    I like this series. The art is great and the writing has me wondering just what is going on. The Demon's appearance made sense and I am looking forward to next issue.

    This series just needs to give me a reason to care. We're halfway done and I couldn't name the characters if I tried.
