In the Golden Age of television, Ruff and Reddy were on top of the entertainment world...until the world turned, and they were forgotten. Now, Ruff is a washed-up television actor. Reddy is a clerk in an upscale grocery store.

Don't miss it if you can!

    On Comics Ground - Carlos Melendez Nov 4, 2017

    Honestly for the most part Id say yes. Similar to the way that Who Framed Roger Rabbit or this years Banana Splits/Suicide Squad crossover(which I do plan on reviewing eventually) played out. DC really has a way with taking tired, obsolete properties and making them relevant and modern in ways that are refreshing and feel very much in line of the original vein of the show. The original show meets reality that could either work or not work but because of the way its written it genuinely does. The artwork is abstract looking and kinda has a surreal vibe to it and is always interesting to look at and for a starting issue which had to reintroduce these readers to fans and non fans alike it had a lot of ground to cover and I felt it did it fairly well. It is very accessible to newcomers while also being very true and faithful to old school fans alike. For a first issue I am excited as well intrigued to see where this goes. Ruff and Reddy are back indeed. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 25, 2017

    But the glue holds it all together is the artwork of Mac Rey, whose artistic styleis clearly inspired by animation - equal parts Tex Avery and Ralph Bakshi. Ifthe first issue is any indication, animation fans are in for a hoot of run. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Oct 25, 2017

    A sudden burst of plot at the end and Mac Rey's delightful art can't really hide the fact that approximately two-thirds of this issue is self-indulgent, obscure and confusing. It's difficult to work out precisely who this comic is for, but it would seem it's not really for me. At times diverting, but never fully engaging, I'm afraid I really can't recommend it.
