Ruff and Reddy have hit the skids, plunging from A-list to "huh?" to "wait, who?" and finally to "who cares?" Next stop for these pathetic has-beens on the treadmill to oblivion is the convention circuit-where their agent turns a potential disaster into a goldmine of publicity - and the comeback begins.

    I never watched the old Ruff & Reddy cartoons; they just never appeared on myradar. So I have no point of reference for the backstory or original concept. I expect fans of the original characters would be grossly offended by this version. But thats par for the course with DC Comics these days. If you haven't read one of its books in two or three decades, youre going to find everything is different. But its not the end of the world. Its just comic books. Read Full Review

    One of the best shows on Netflix " if you can handle it " is Bojack Horseman, a show about a talking horse that is actually a brutally dark Hollywood satire about the price of fading fame. Ruff & Reddy, which reinvents the classic Hanna-Barbera funnymen as Hollywood has-beens, seems to be trying for a similar vibe, but it's not quite willing to commit to the darkness. As such, what we actually get is a screwball comedy that's also a story about middle-age depression. Read Full Review

    Although an improvement on last month, this issue's languorous story means that, despite Rey's fabulous artwork and the odd humorous moment, I can't really recommend it. For a comic based on a cartoon, there's just an awful lot of talking going on here and, despite the arch wit on display, there's simply not enough incident to liven things up. Read Full Review
